Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Goes Green

If they can do it on an 85 foot tree, so can you: the Rockefeller Center Tree in New York City is decorated with 30,000 LED lights, which are powered by solar arrays atop the 45 Rockefeller Center building.

Just switching to LED Christmas lights alone can mean a savings of energy and more money in your pocket due to lower energy costs--and the increased price of the LED lights is more than balanced out by their 10-year expected lifespan. Check out our links after the jump.

The energy savings is equivalent to powering a 2,000 sq. foot house. The top of the tree is decorated with a Swarovski 25,000 crystal-encrusted star that's near 10 feet in diameter.
