Pixel Light Show Carbon Footprint Calculator
Plenty of variables to consider when calculating an electrical item’s actual carbon footprint impact. Average values for pixel wattage have been assumed, and the end calculation is deemed to be ~96% accurate. As such, this calculator should be considered for entertainment purposes only.
The Rusty Griswold display runs for 5 hours nightly, with 14,000 pixels at an average brightness of 32%.
Why should I calculate the carbon footprint of my pixel light display?
Calculating the carbon footprint of your pixel light display can help you understand its impact on the environment and identify ways to reduce its emissions.
What factors affect the carbon footprint of a pixel light display?
The carbon footprint of a pixel light display is affected by the number of pixels, hours of usage, and brightness percentage. Other factors that can affect the carbon footprint include the energy source used to power the lights, the transportation of the lights, and the eventual disposal of the lights.
How do I use the carbon footprint calculator on this page?
To use the calculator, input the number of pixels, hours of usage, and brightness percentage of your pixel light display, and the calculator will estimate the carbon footprint of your display. It will even give you a comparison to driving a gas-powered vehicle!
Can I use the carbon footprint calculator for other types of lights?
The carbon footprint calculator on this page is designed and programmed explicitly for pixel light displays using WS2811 or equivalent pixel bulbs.
