The lights will shine merry and bright for Holiday Magic in Shelton when Mason PUD 3 brings energy efficiency into this year's Christmas Celebration.
Justin Holzgrove, Mason PUD 3, and Heidi McCutcheon, Shelton-Mason Chamber of Commerce, pose with a box of LED lights that will be installed in the centerpieces of Railroad Ave's vintage Christmas decorations this year.
A PUD 3 tree trimming truck is setup in Post Office Park while team members decorate the large Chrsitmas tree in nearly a mile of christmas lights.
PUD 3 Journeyman Tree Foreman, Tyson Latham, flies high above Post Office Park in downtown Shelton to install 6,700 Christmas tree lights on Cameron's Tree.
PUD 3 helped the community decorate the Christmas Tree in Post Office Park with 6,700 energy efficient LED bulbs, or nearly a mile of lights. To see the spectacle, be at the park in downtown Shelton on Friday, December 2, at 6:00 PM for the traditional lighting of the tree.
The PUD also partnered with the Shelton-Mason County Chamber of Commerce, City of Shelton, and Shelton Kiwanis to install LED lights to update the centerpieces of the vintage Christmas decorations that have graced downtown Shelton for many years. In addition to reducing maintenance costs, the new lights will save about $125 in energy each season, or about 1,500 kilowatt hours less consumption. That’s almost the same as an average home's monthly electricity use.
Helping its customers use energy wisely is a strong part of PUD 3’s vision, and a core business function of the utility. Helping them do so in a fun and engaging way is why the PUD is using this opportunity to educate its customers and the public about this season’s “12 Ways to Save” campaign at www.pud3.org/christmas.
