About the Lights of Hope display
Lights of Hope must be seen to be fully appreciated. The display is built by volunteers using donated materials – including ten kilometers of lights!
According to BC Hydro, despite its size and scope, Lights of Hope uses very little energy. To operate the full display results in an energy bill of just $65 each night. A big part of this energy efficiency is the use of LED bulbs, which account for 60% of the lights. LED bulbs last for 4000 hours, which is twice as long as incandescent bulbs; and strings of LED bulbs use only 1 to 3 kilowatt hours of energy, while strings of incandescent bulbs use anywhere from 12 to 105 kilowatt hours.
