Farmers' Market Hosts Energy-Efficient Holiday Light Exchange

Nov 07, 2016 11:43AM ● By Jeanne Fratello
Putting lights up for the holidays is a fun way to celebrate the season, but those electricity-guzzling lights can bring added costs to your electric bill. This year, consider going "green" with more energy-efficient LED holiday lights - which can be yours for free at the Manhattan Beach Farmers Market on Tuesday, November 8.

Stop by the Manhattan Beach Farmers’ Market any time during its regular hours, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a strand of your old incandescent holiday lights. Look for the "Energy Upgrade California" booth and exchange your light strand for one new FREE strand of LED holiday lights.

Only one strand per household, please. The offer is limited to the first 50 people.

After you make your exchange, continue to "go green" by buying fresh, local, farm-grown produce from local purveyors at the farmers' market.

For those who miss Tuesday's event, there will also be a Holiday Light Exchange at 20285 S. Western Ave., Ste. 100 in Torrance on Wed., Nov 9 and Thurs., Nov. 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please be prepared to bring your DWP or SCE utility bill and a driver's license showing that you are a South Bay resident.

The Holiday Light Exchange is sponsored by the statewide Energy Upgrade California program and the South Bay Environmental Services Center.
