Tower of Light
|Tower of Light|
|Owner||Kaohsiung City Government|
|No. of transmission towers||1|
The tower was originally used by Taipower as high voltage transmission tower. With the construction of underground power cable, the tower was on the brink of being scrapped. The Kaohsiung City Government then actively persuaded Taipower to retain one tower for commemorative purpose. After successfully lobbying for a budget of NT$40 million, ecological concepts were incorporated into the design to use solar power to illuminate the tower.
