The famous Santa Monica’s ferris wheel is the only ferris wheel in the world that take advantage of solar energy. They don’t call it famous for nothing, it’s been featured in Hollywood movies, music videos, and also because this ferris wheel is the most energy efficient in the world. The recent upgrade to LED bulbs that light up the ferris wheel in now saving more power and money to pacific park, becoming more energy efficient now allows the ferris wheel to maximize on its solar power system more effectively. The new wheel will radiate with 160,000 LED lights, providing 75% greater energy savings than the previously used incandescent bulbs. A ray of sunshine illuminates the new Ferris wheel at Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier as panels of energy-efficient LED lights are installed on the attraction. The previous wheel was sold on Ebay and disassembled earlier this month.
Combining solar panels with energy efficiency lighting is the best value a solar power system can offer but very rarely accomplished. If you’re considering solar panels, pairing up LED lighting with a solar electric system can be one of the best moves you can make.
