A look at the L.A. Convention Center today (top), and what it might look like when it gets that 50,000 square feet of advertising signage. And notice the solar panels below the green facade, which were installed several years ago with much fanfare about energy savings. A single full-sized electronic billboard with its thousands of LED’s uses as much as 400,000 kilowatt hours per year, according to a study by a chapter of the Green Building Council. That’s equivalent to the annual energy use of 13 average houses. And much of the 50,000 square feet of signage will be electronic. What does that say about the city council’s commitment to making L.A. a “green” city?
