Truckee Donner PUD Gives Away FREE LED Holiday Lights to Customers

Bring up to three strands of old, incandescent holiday lights and exchange for LED’s!

Truckee, Calif. (December 4, 2014) – With snow falling and temperatures dropping, the holiday season is upon us. This year the Truckee Donner PUD will again swap out old, incandescent holiday lights for free energy efficient LED (light emitting diode) holiday lights. The swap-out is happening now during regular business hours, at the TDPUD office located at 11570 Donner Pass Road.

Customers are asked to bring in a copy of their current TDPUD electric bill along with up to three strands of old incandescent holiday lights. The TDPUD will replace them with your choice of up to 60 feet of white or multicolor LED lights. These energy-efficient holiday lights can save between 80-98 percent on energy costs versus the old-style incandescent lights. They also look great.

Part of the TDPUD’s mandate is to reduce energy consumption, and the LED holiday lights help to reach that goal. “Each year our customers have really embraced this program and the holiday spirit.” says general manager Michael Holley, “LED lighting technology continues to be installed throughout our community, helping our customers save energy and money.”

While in the office, eligible customers can also receive other free light bulbs (CFL’s, 7-types) and information on the district’s energy and water savings programs. Customers should visit the TDPUD soon; this program is only available while supplies last. For more information on the TDPUD LED Holiday Light Exchange Program, call 530-582-3931 or visit
