The lights on Broadway are shining brighter!
Last week, 7,642 light bulbs were changed outside the Newmark, Brunish, and Winningstad Theaters, and the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall – including our iconic Portland sign on SW Broadway.
Old, energy-draining bulbs were replaced with long lasting, energy-efficient LED bulbs that have at least 5 year lifespans - saving 186,000 kilowatt hours. That’s enough energy to power 16 households! Portland’5 will also save a lot of money – more than $18,000 annually.
Nick is proud to serve as Council liaison for Portland’5, the 5th largest performing arts center in the nation. Each year, they bring over 1,000 performances, lectures, – and now, sustainable lighting - to Portland in some of our most iconic buildings.
