Solar Technology To Help Light Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

GE Energy has supplied 363 roof-mounted solar panels at the top of 45 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City that help generate electricity for the first solar powered Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree.

The Christmas tree has been decorated with 30,000 new energy-efficient LED lights, on five miles of wire, which help illuminate Rockefeller Center with a cleaner source of holiday power. The Rockefeller Center solar installation is the largest privately owned solar energy generation station in Manhattan and the GE manufactured panels, installed by Tishman Speyer, through altPOWER, help reduce the building's electricity consumption. The panels create a 70-kilowatt DC generation station tied to the Rockefeller Center grid through ConEdison.
