♫♪ ‘Tis the Season… ♪♫

…to be merry and to be very energy efficient! And Rising Sun Energy Center wants to help you be festive and fight climate change all at the same time. For a limited time, Rising Sun will be providing free LED holiday light strands in exchange for your old incandescent holiday light strands.

PLUS, your old strands will be recycled by ACE and the funds go toward Cancer Research. So you can feel good about being saving energy and funding a good cause!

Clear and color strands are available, but supplies are limited! They will be swapped on a first come, first serve basis, but once they’re gone, they’re gone. Come get yours while you can at the following events:

  • 11/8/12, 5pm-8pm: Danville Livery & Mercantile, 440 Sycamore Valley Rd W, Danville, CA
  • 11/10/12, 12:30pm-2:30pm: Pickleweed Comm Center, 50 Canal St, San Rafael, CA
  • 11/18/12, 1pm-4pm: Ecology Center, 2530 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley, CA
  • 12/1/12, 11am-2pm: Hacienda Crossings, 4820 Dublin Boulevard, Dublin, CA
  • 12/1/12, 12pm-5pm: Northgate Mall, 5800 Northgate Mall, San Rafael, CA
  • 12/8/12, 8am-12pm: San Rafael Community Center, 618 B St, San Rafael, CA

You must be a resident of Alameda, Contra Costa or Marin County and bring a copy of your Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) bill to participate.

Happy HoLEDays!

    • Great question Laura! The swap is open to renters too! Usually renters can just ask their landlord for the PG&E account information. We will need all three account numbers though; there will be an general account number, an electric account and a gas account. Please have him/her provide all three. And then as long as you have the right address and and can provide us with your phone number just in case there is any follow-up, you should be good to exchange! You can let him/her know that the swap is to their benefit as it will save them energy and money during the holidays, especially if they are paying the bill! You can let them know that we’ve swapped thousands of these and many other energy efficient items over the years for thousands of renters across the Bay Area. Hope you enjoy your new LED holiday lights!


  1. Hi. Thanks for doing this! Any chance that you will have more plain white lights available for the upcoming events (12/1 and 12/8)? I traded in my beloved white lights before I realized I was getting colored lights in return. Cheers.
