The city of New York’s Christmas holiday-light energy use has declined by about one-third from 2010, largely due to the switch to LEDs (light-emitting diodes).  This year, holiday lighting in the US city will add about 750 megawatts of load, down from about 1,150 MW in 2010. Investment Bank Goldman Sachs calls LEDs one of the fastest technology shifts […]
