There seems to be a lot of concern about how much money other people are spending on electricity for their Christmas lights. I’m happy to report, it doesn’t cost much.
The price of electricity varies from place to place, and from time to time, but a typical price is 12¢ per kilowatt hour. That means that if you burn 1,000 watts for the span of one hour, you’ll pay 12¢.
