Times Square Gets a Solar Billboard

First Sign of Its Kind in Times Square

Times Square will boast a new sign this New Year's Eve.  This 47 ft. high and 126 ft. long billboard will be powered by solar panels and wind turbines.  It will wrap around the corner of Seventh Avenue and 42nd Street.   The "eco-friendly" sign is the first of its kind in Times Square and the Eastern States.  It will drop carbon dioxide emissions by 18 tons per year. The solar and wind will power a floodlight to "light it up", and when there isn't enough sun or wind to run the floodlight, it will still be visible.

    Some very intresting ideas and comments. I came across this page whilst looking for cheaper energy prices . My bills haven risen by 35% this year and am now facing yet another increase by these greedy energy companies. (Thankfully I only rent so don't have to worry about a mortgage as well.) Has anyone tried this green and cheap renewable energy? If so, be intrested to know how it worked for you.
