How to Wildlight the Winter

Jane Hawes

Doing the Math

*One strand has 50 mini-bulbs on it.

*About 95 percent of the Wildlight bulbs are the mini's (the rest are larger C-7 and C-9 bulbs), so that means they use about 1,900,000 bulbs or 38,000 strands.

*Facilities director Pat McCafferty estimates that every 10,000 mini-bulbs (or 200 strands) draw about 20 amperes of electricity, or as much as flows through one breaker in your house.
