Stay safe and save energy this holiday season.

Keep safety first when celebrating

  • Check your outlets. Look for outlets that have loose-fitting plugs, exposed wires or broken plates and have them fixed by a qualified electrician. Use safety covers on all outlets accessible to children.
  • Check for damaged wires. Check each set of lights, new or old, for broken or cracked sockets, frayed or bare wires, or loose connections. Discard damaged sets or repair them before using.
  • Watch for lines and poles. Be sure to install decorations away from power poles, lines and the building's primary power drop, and be careful when using ladders or working off the ground.
  • Take extra care outdoors. Only use lights and extension cords designed for outdoor use and keep electric connections above ground and out of areas where water may collect.
  • Trim the tree safely. Only use non-combustible or flame-resistant materials to trim a tree.

Easy ways to save this holiday

  • Light with LEDs. LED decorations can use more than 50% less energy than traditional incandescent decorations and last up to 10 times longer.
  • Find Festive Fiber Optics. The technology uses one light source that flows through fiber cable to multiple visible points of the light.
  • Timing Counts. Use smart plugs and timers to ensure that holiday decorations are only in use when people are home, or awake, to enjoy them. 

Georgia Power wishes you a safe and happy holiday season!
