Let's all cry for few minutes and see if it helps, shall we?

This tower will alone use the saved energy in few days, when all the lights and airconditioning are on in this building.

At least the Three Gorges Dam Hydroelectric Power will provide you more energy (if the power plant is already completed).

but the thing is..all the office building in shanghai including jinmao/shopping centers/almost every public place where there is air conditioning will turn down 1 or 2 degrees to save more electricity..

and buildings will turn off the neons ealiers in shanghai so they will save more electricity

and now its just wasted..i rather it not open the neon 24/7 but to have cooler air conditionings and everything

i think LED lights are the way to go for illuminating billboards, signs and decorative lights on buildings. hopefully neon lights will become more energy efficient through refinement and next generation of lighting technologies to power up or down lights due to ambience.
