Power
Normal most of the time, in case of power outage:

UPS backup on computer
Generator in case of complete power loss
20 Kw Air Cooled can power entire house and all Christmas light systems

How much power do we use?
24.21 AMPS the biggest draw, the incandesent lights on the static items, they pull 8.25 amps on their own.
Song Creation -Creating a new sequence takes between 12 - 60 hours depending upon length of song, and complexity of the light sequence desired.

CCR/RGB Controllers - Nine
Specs: 150 Channels per controller
Each Cosmic Color Ribbon can have any color you can imagine on any of the bulbs.

Programming effort required - HUGE, regular controllers are 16 channels vs. 150 per unit.
