Houses across Haliburton County will be lit up over the holiday season but one hydro company wants to make sure everyone is using the right lights.  While getting into the festive spirit, HydroOne is providing tips on saving energy over the holiday season. Alyssia Sayers with HydroOne says there are ways to avoid overloading.

When it comes to the right lighting to use, Sayers says LED lights also last up to ten times longer than radiant lights.

Sayers also says to make sure to use Canadian Standards Association approved materials.

She says electrical connections should be off the ground at all times. Never install the lights with the power on, always test them first, then unplug and install.
