Greer, SC (WSPA-TV)
Greer CPW is holding it’s 4th annual Holiday Lights Contest and 7 homes are entered to try to win in the three categories.
The utility company’s Public Information Coordinator Alison Rauch said the contest is a fun way to get the word out about the services they offer customers, introduce neighbors and let people know how to stay safe and save money during the holiday season and year round.
Rauch said 7 homes are looking to win best overall theme, best usage of LED and Facebook fan favorite.
Rauch said they encourage homeowners to use LED or (light emitting diode) because they burn brighter, save money because they use less energy, cost more up front but you’ll save energy in the long run, and they last longer than traditional bulbs (won’t burn out as fast and the strands are more durable) and LED’s give off less heat.
Winners receive $100, a sign to place in their yard and a gift basket.
Visit Greer CPW Facebook page to vote for the Facebook fan favorite.
Judging happens until December 20th and most homes said they will have lights on from 5:30p- 10:30p
