Lite Tape Energy Consumption

EL Tape is inexpensive and energy efficient lighting source, costing only about $80 a year to run, based on 400 linear feet of 1" Wide EL Tape. This makes it quite the bargain, especially when compared to the other lighting technologies on the market. Fluorescent and neon lighting costs about $1700 per year annually to run, and even “energy effiecient”  LEDs cost about $500 per year to operate. EL Tape is easy on your wallet, so you don’t have to be.
