It Costs $82,000 to Light the One Million Christmas Lights at this House

Illustration for article titled It Costs $82,000 to Light the One Million Christmas Lights at this House

The Faucher Family in Delaware have built extravagant Christmas lights setups for 25 years now. How extravagant? They use 1,000,000 lights. So how much does it cost them to run the lights for a month? $82,320. Gulp.

HouseLogic estimated the total cost by using the average price per kWh in the Faucher Family's region and assumed each of their 1,000,000 bulbs were the average 5 watt C7 bulb. They then figured the lights to run for 4 hours each night and 30 nights in total. The estimated cost came out to be $686/hour and $82,320 for those bright 30 nights. A lot of money to get in the Christmas spirit!

If the Fauchers use LEDS, their estimate would drop down to $89 hour and $10,680. For their sake, let's hope they do. Check out other extravagant Christmas lights costs at HouseLogic. [House Logic via Unplggd]

I sure hope they are feeding ethiopian children during the non-Christmas season, otherwise this is just a cocky display of assholishness...
