The Toronto Skyline got a lot more colorful last night. While the CN Tower has been testing it's new lighting system for the last few weeks... they officially flipped the switch last night on their new multi-million dollar lighting set-up. The official ceremonies went off last night with some music, festivities and lots of excited watchers.
Now capable of projecting millions of colour combinations, the CN Tower of Toronto just got a colour makeover. Not only is it looking good... it should be feeling good to, as the new lighting set-up uses 10% less power than the old lighting system.
How the New CN Tower Lights Work
The requried spending for the new system was C$2.5 million ($2.4 million US) for 1,300 shoe-box sized fixtures that will last 10 years. It will use 10 percent less energy than the current lighting effects and 60 percent less than the fully lit tower of the 1990s.
