The Price of Light

Here’s an interesting infographic comparing the costs to light up a number of world-famous landmarks. The Las Vegas Strip of course leaves everything else in the dust, both because of its sheer size and because of how much of the lighting is still neon.

This only includes operating costs (i.e. electricity) and does not include maintenance or replacements.

For reference, at the time of this writing £1 = $1.33.
