Though it went up in 2008 and is no longer there, the Electric Fountain, a 35ft tall LED powered fountain, was truly a testament to the artistic and imaginative capabilities of LED technology. The fountain was erected in the center New York City’s iconic Rockefeller Center and featured 3,400 LED bulbs and 2,100ft of neon tubing. The LED bulbs were sequenced and timed in such a way that they realistically simulated the rise and fall of water. Amazingly, the 3,400 LED bulbs only used 120amps.The Electric Fountain drew roughly 250,000 people and demonstrated to the public the outstanding potential of LED bulbs.
Even since 2008 there have been tremendous strides made in LED technology. Today, BulbAmerica stocks numerous types of LED retrofit bulbs, outdoor LEDs, and other LED products that were not available even two years ago. It is likely that increasing numbers of LED retrofit light bulbs and applications for LEDs will reveal themselves very soon, so keep your eyes peeled for more news about LEDs and we will keep you updated.
