The Tribute in Light is an art installation of 88 searchlights placed next to the site of the World Trade Center to create two vertical columns of light in remembrance of the September 11 attacks. It is produced annually by The Municipal Art Society of New York.

 

The two beams cost approximately $1,858.56 (asuming $0.11 KwH) to run for 24 hours. There are 88 spotlights (44 for each tower) which each consume 8,000 watts.
