Sustainable Design for the 21st Century

Careful with those Christmas lights!

By Brent Sauser

LED light 03Christmas time is a magical time of hope, gifts wrapped in colorful paper and bows, of tender memories, and bright lights inside and out.  Yet, this year we celebrate the yuletide season in the face of rising electrical prices. LED light 02 In response, many are switching over to LED lights, which operate at a fraction of the cost.  This common sense decision to lower the impact of higher electrical prices indicates that:

  • People will make a common sense decision to switch over to Net Zero type products, even though they may cost a little more to purchase, when they understand the tangible savings that will pay for themselves (and then some) over the long term.  
  • Regardless of where we live, we cannot escape the relentless march of rising electrical prices.LED light 06

LED light 01If we are willing to see the common sense logic in buying something of higher initial cost (i.e. LED lights), knowing that in the long run the savings in operational costs far outweigh the initial cost . . . . . then we have all taken a huge step toward understanding the benefits of going Net Zero on a larger scale.  

LED light 04We cannot control the continuing rise of electrical costs, but we can control how to mitigate the impact through wise choices in design, and selection of Net Zero materials and products.  Taking the leap to Net Zero can be done without sacrificing your expected LED light 05creature comforts.  It’s time we take control of our long term expenses and not remain victims to external forces that never seem to go down in costs.  That’s just common sense!

We have taken a big step.  Now, let’s keep going!

Merry Christmas!
