2020 National Christmas Tree: A Shining Example of Patriotism
For the past 57 years, GE Lighting has provided the lighting and design for the National Christmas Tree while part of General Electric. Now for the first year as part of Savant Systems Inc., GE Lighting, a Savant company will continue the privileged tradition for the 58th year.
In honor of our love for our country, this year’s patriotic design includes red, white and blue opaque lights in a larger, traditional style LED light bulb that are strung naturally around the tree, resulting in a simple, yet classic design. And no tree is complete without a topper. The dazzling six-sided, handcrafted 3D gold star features LED tape lighting and adorns the tree in celebration of the season.
This is the 12th year that GE LED lights, many of them Energy Star® certified, have been used exclusively in the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. New advancements in LED lighting offer the opportunity to create innovative designs and help utilize energy efficiencies. This year’s design includes 18,000 LED lights and only uses 3,500 watts. Each strand of the GE LED holiday lights uses nearly 80 percent less energy than traditional holiday lights, while providing the festive lighting.
GE Lighting, a Savant company is proud to partner with the National Park Foundation on the 2020 National Christmas Tree lighting and design. Learn more about the partnership between GE Lighting, a Savant company and the National Park Foundation here.
