Free LED Christmas Lights- A good idea from a public utility

Treehuggers know that the best new source of electricity is conservation- that money invested there beats nuclear, coal, solar and wind. Our local City-owned utility appears to get that- we just exchanged two strings of old incandescent Christmas lights for new LED lights that use 90% less power. Free. On a street corner in the dark, at a booth run by committed kids hired (correction, see comment): who volunteered to promote conservation- truly a demonstration of power to the people. We almost feel guilty about switching to Bullfrog. ::Toronto Hydro
