Ricoh's 'Green' Billboard


Ricoh, the Japanese cameras & copiers manufacturer giant has finally erected an eco-friendly billboard in New York City's Time Square last December. It is 100 percent powered by solar and wind power with 16 cutting edge vertical wind turbines and 64 solar panels. By powering the billboard directly with alternative energy, Ricoh is saving 18 tons of carbon dioxide per year! If there is not enough solar or wind power, the Times Square sign will not be illuminated. Ricoh also currently has a similar eco-powered sign in Osaka, Japan, that uses 100 percent solar and wind power. Environmental preservation has been a top priority for Ricoh for over 30 years since 1976.
