Tokyo’s Solar-Powered Christmas Lights

Tokyo’s Solar-Powered Christmas Lights

The lights are arranged within the building windows in the shape of a giant Christmas tree made of 184’ of blue LED lamps. The display uses 126 solar panels to charge 70 storage batteries, which then go to power the lights from 5pm to 9pm daily. This year is the first that one of the many displays is powered without electricity provided by a local utility. It’s a fraction of the total cost of Tokyo’s annual display – and a great first step toward making the holidays just a little greener.
