Renewable Energy-powered Billboard in Times Square

The famous Times Square in New York City will receive a natural energy-powered billboard from Ricoh, Japan. This unique billboard won’t cost the city extra tax dollars to run, as it features a quartet of wind power generators and a massive 45 solar cell panels that are able to generate up to 98 kilowatt-hours of electricity together per day, enabling it to sustain itself indefinitely without any external help. The Ricoh billboard is said to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 18 tons per year, and will be unveiled at the end of this year – just in time for the ball to drop for New Year’s Day.
