Community Holiday Tree is sponsored by the Downtown Organization and is graciously donated by Southern California Edison. The Downtown Organization would like to thank Southern California Edison for delivering the tree to Santa Barbara and the City of Santa Barbara's Public Works and Parks Departments for the installation just north of the intersection of Victoria and State Streets.
Thanks to the South County Energy Efficiency Partnership (SCEEP), a partnership between local governments and Southern California Edison, the tree will be strung with energy efficient LED lights! "LEDs save up to 90 percent of the electricity that is needed to power conventional painted or ceramic coated bulbs. The low electricity use of LEDs means less carbon emissions and less money spent on electricity" said Patricia Bartoli-Wible, Local Public Affairs Region Manager for Southern California Edison. Another benefit is LEDs are encased in hard-to-break plastic versus the more fragile glass of incandescent lights, and because the LED is electronic, it lasts up to 10 times longer than incandescent highlight light strings.
The official lighting of the tree will take by the Holiday Prince and Fairy at the beginning of the 60th Annual Downtown Holiday Parade. This magnificent tree will shine brightly and efficiently through the holiday season. For more information on the community tree or the 60th Annual Downtown Holiday Parade, please contact the Downtown Organization at 962-2098 ext. 22.
