Energy efficiency hits the Famous Santa Monica Pier ferris wheel

Aside from the fact that the Santa Monica Pier ferris has been a staple of Los Angeles, they don’t call it famous for nothing. The ferris wheel has been featured in Hollywood hit movies, music videos and is not only the most famous ferris wheel in the world but its the most energy efficient. Its the only solar powered ferris wheel in the entire world, Santa Monica has an abundance of solar resources, pacific park understands how to take advantage of solar power and now energy efficiency.

Solar Panels that power the ferris wheel is old news, but the recent upgrade to LED bulbs that light up the ferris wheel is now saving the pacific park even more money by reducing their power consumption. Becoming more energy efficient now allows the ferris wheel to maximize on its solar power system more effectively. 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.

LED lights have a lifetime of over 10 years, do not contain harmful mercury like CFL light bulbs and use the faction of power a CFL or Incandescent uses. LED lights produce less heat and have a brighter output compared to older lighting technology. LED is the future of lighting and the famous Santa Monica Pier is leading the way.

  1. I sell real estate in Santa Monica California and here is some info about what we are doing in our city– Santa Monica Real Estate will hopefully become some of the greenest in the country soon. I know that it may not be as legit as you and I would like but they are certainly trying. You have to admit it’s a rare city to put this kind of emphasis on green real estate construction etc.

    Here is some info on Santa Monica’s Green City initiatives for anyone who’s interested: # On the West Coast, Santa Monica wants to be the nation’s first “Net Zero” city. Through energy efficiency, solar and other renewable energy, the city envisions generating clean energy that matches its total energy consumption. This will help leave Santa Monica Real Estate cleaner and healthier for all.
