The Sharp sign is located in Lavender Street in North Sydney, is 18 metres long and three metres high, and is illuminated using LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology. This LED sign uses 65 per cent less energy than neon signs and does not require neon gas disposal when it is replaced.
Sharp Australia’s Deputy Managing Director, Denis Kerr said that the LED sign is another example of Sharp’s commitment to its ‘Super Green Strategy.’
“Earth Hour is a great initiative and it is pleasing to see world cities following Sydney’s stance against global warming. All of these energy reducing and eco-friendly attributes reflect Sharp’s global positioning of reducing greenhouse gases and working towards more environmentally friendly outcomes,” said Kerr.
