As part of its sponsorship of the 2014 Fox KIA HOT New Year’s Eve Party, Consumers Energy has replaced the 450 halogen light bulbs used the previous five years with Cree Inc. LED bulbs. The new bulbs use about 80 percent less electricity than similar halogen bulbs and will last up to 20 times longer. Consumers Energy has been a sponsor for all six years of the New Year’s Eve party, which has continued to grow each year. More than 40,000 people are expected to fill the streets in downtown Grand Rapids surrounding Rosa Parks Circle.
