Contact the webmaster of collingwoodlights.com. He owns 1601 Collingwood Road south of Alexandria and he puts up over 250,000 lights most years. I’m sure he’s an expert on trying to use more efficient bulbs!

Sadly, 1601 Collingwood won’t have lights this year. The homeowner announced his health has prevented him from setting up his display. He doesn’t know about future years.

Finding plug-in LED window candles seems an impossible task.  Everything is either batteries+LED or plug-in+ incandescent :?

LEDs use so little power that most manufactures probably think a battery will be enough for a season

I'm talking about tall candles, all the ones I've seen take 2 or 3 AA's.  Maybe one charge would last all season but I'd rather not have to buy even more batteries that I don't need the rest of the year.

Everything at Dollar Tree stores is $1 or less, including battery packages with 4 to 8 batteries.

Ended up just ordering some LED replacement bulbs for standard plug-in candles.  Total cost per candle is still less than most of the battery powered options that don't include batteries.
