This year, the City of Roseville is offering its electric customers a trade, new strands of LED holiday lights in exchange for old, incandescent lights.

"The incandescent lights use more energy than LED lights," says Vonette McCauley is with Roseville Electric Utility. "The LED lights are better because they're more durable, they're longer lasting, they'll save them money, they'll save them energy, they're cool to the touch."

Customers with a recent utility bill can exchange three strands of lights at the Roseville Utility Exploration Center between Tuesday and Saturday.

About 3,500 people have traded in their lights in the program's five years.
