DUMBO residents celebrate unique tree lighting ceremony using technology developed by Biolite
Residents in DUMBO got into the holiday spirit Thursday with a unique tree lighting ceremony.
The seemingly normal-looking Christmas tree is powered completely by clean energy provided from a fire pit. Start-up company Biolite has developed thermo-electric technology that will be producing the energy. Biolite says this is the first time they have ever lit a tree using clean energy.
