Christmas lighting system: the crisis accelerates the change towards the efficiency The average of kWh is reduced to a 49% consumed and a 19% the installation cost The hours of ignition clear the 300 in Valencia and Malaga. Sta. Cross of Tenerife arrives at 400 The cost per capita of installation of Madrid duplicate to Barcelona and wastes more hours ADECES (Economic and Social Civil Association Pro Right) has realised III the Study on Christmas lighting system in 30 cities, 11 more than the past year. The data demonstrate that the crisis has accelerated the change towards one more a more efficient illumination, in fact, the average of kWh consumed is reduced in a 49%, whereas the corresponding one to hours of ignition remains next to 200; although there are cities that clear the 300, as Valencia and Malaga and Sta. Cross of Tenerife reach the 400. The adjustment of the cost also moves to the installation costs that lower a 19%. With respect to the great cities, Madrid and Barcelona, it is precise to indicate that to Madrid duplicate per capita the cost of installation of Barcelona and surpasses its hours of ignition in a 32%. Of the study the following conclusions in relation to the analyzed parameters are extracted: Hours of ignition.
– We followed very far from the proposal of 135 hours of ignition that ADECES formulated in 2008, these Christmases the average is placed in 197 hours. Only three cities are below the limit proposed by the association: Calahorra (108) and Cartagena and Port of Santa Maria (both with 120). These they slightly follow Zamora (149) and Logroo to them (150) over the recommendation. Thirteen of the 30 analyzed cities surpass the average of the 197 hours. Thus Santa Cruz de Tenerife (400), Valencia (296) and Malaga (274), surpasses the average in a 103%, 49% and 39% respectively.
