Have you ever heard of a tree going "green"? I though they were green enough already... It would be more appropriate to say that New York City is going green.
The 84-foot-tall Norway spruce chosen to adorn the Rockefeller Center is covered with 30,000 multicolored light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, strung on five miles of wire.
Using the energy-efficient LEDs to replace incandescent bulbs will reduce the display's electricity consumption from 3,510 to 1,297 kilowatt hours per day. The daily savings is equal to the amount of electricity consumed by a typical 2,000-square-foot house in a month.
Way to go NYC! Read the rest of the story here...
