Light display of Santa to use solar power
HONOLULU | A light display of Santa’s workshop and village will be powered by the sun this year.
The nonprofit Blue Planet Foundation is leading the effort to build an 8-foot diorama that will use energy-efficient LED lights.
The Lego Enthusiasts Association of Hawaii and the University of Hawaii Solar Decathlon Team Hawaii are building the display.
It will be powered by a solar panel canopy designed and built by the Kaneohe-based solar design and installation company Sunetric. A battery pack will store energy produced by the panels during the day so the lights turn on at night.
It will be on display through Dec. 31.
