For the most part the Eiffel Tower appears to be a monument to excess, although in a typically French elegant manner. However, in 2007 it did reduce its electricity consumption by 40%, and twice during that same year shut all lights off for five minutes to support the country’s dedication to sustainable living.
Actually in 2003, the Eiffel tower’s lights were replaced with new lights that were expected to last 10 years and reduced energy costs by 38%, according to Philips, which was contracted for the job. The company says the tower’s lighting costs are now 16% of what they were in 1986. And considering that the tower was supposed to be torn down roughly 100 years ago, I think its pretty sustainable at this point. More recently when the city celebrated its 120th birthday with a light show, it was lit entirely with LED lights.
