New Zealand has a goal to use 100% renewable energy by 2035. As the company that powers the country’s largest city we have an important role to play in that change. To reflect the nation’s goal, we created the largest solar-powered structure in the country. A permanent 90,000 LED surface was installed by Mandy Lights and Jonny Kofoed from Assembly directed a 6 minute launch animation that was played on the night.
Thousands of people around the city, on the water and in the air turned out for the event, breaking previous New Year’s Eve records in the process. A soundtrack composed by Mahuia Bridgman-Cooper was streamed live at the event, or you could tune in on FM radio frequencies.
