Billboard Business, Digital Signs

Outdoor Billboard Electricity Costs

I finance static billboards, trivisions and digital signs.  Here are my estimates of what it costs per month to light a billboard based on a review of my own records and discussions with sign manufacturers:

Two Sided Static 14 by 48 billboard – $100/month.

Two Sided 14 by 48 Trivision  – $150/month.

Two Sided 14 by 48 Digital Sign – $450/month.

Let me know if your experience is different (

I have some clients who turn off their digital signs from 1am to 5 pm on order to save energy.  That strategy won’t work if casinos are on the sign because they want to reach people who are up all night.
