- Work started on the display in mid September this year, and I have worked 3 day weekends since Halloween to get the lights up and running.
The lights took approximately 14 full days to put up and most evenings in the garage getting things ready.
Total number of lights: just over 85,000.
Electrical usage this year is COMING SOON Amps. It is a significant drop from my high (2009) of 115-120 Amps. LED lights are the reason for the decrease.
The show is completely computer controlled across over 400 channels. The setup is completely controlled by Light-O-Rama controllers. This is how the stars move and the tree dances!
Over 99% of the lights are LED this year, only a couple of the lightup decorations use incandescent.
The display included one 15' megatree. It now features over 8000 lights.
-We have (2) 12.5' megatrees. Each with over 5000 lights.
The 8 leaping arches have over 6400 lights on them. Watch them throughout the night, they do different things!
There is approximately 2 miles of extension cords running the display. (The tree alone has over 1000' of extension cord).
The lights are on 12 circuits with plenty of capacity to grow.
