New research from comparethemarket.com.au indicates what else could be powered with the energy it takes to light up the Eiffel Tower for five minutes
In new research from Compare the Market in Australia, the energy needed to power the Eiffel Tower's twinkling light show has been compared to an assortment of electrical items to determine what else could be powered using the same amount of energy.
The results range from charging smartphones to running high-powered speaker systems at loud rock concerts.
