    20 Kwh, that is what it takes to run this show 20,000-watts every hour.

    @nmg196: I came here to say the same thing. I seriously expect better from anything having to do with green living. Understanding energy usage is important.

    “20Kwh of electricity” doesn’t mean anything unless also specify how long it takes to use that amount. If it uses that amount every hour, then it’s high. If it’s per month, then it’s very low. It’s like saying a car “only” uses 20,000 litres of petrol.

    This cathedral looks so cool! I’m even more impressed that it consumers less electricity.
