The Point Loma Association reports that its electric bill for its Village Lights project on Rosecrans Street came to $428 last year.

And sales of the signature Light it Up Taco at Point Loma Fish Shop covered it, the group said. The Fish Shop is at 1110 Rosecrans St.

Proceeds from the sale of every Light it Up Taco are donated to the association, a nonprofit community service and advocacy organization.

The Village Lights display features a canopy of lights strung across two blocks of Rosecrans between Talbot and Cañon streets. It debuted in May 2022.
