Public Lighting

Each city will make its own choices, but options include:

  • Dimming LED lights at midnight
  • Upgrading old lights to LED
  • Shutting off lights not needed after midnight
  • Install adequate shielding

Benefits to the City

Depending on the options chosen, changes will

  • Save money
  • Save electricity
  • Improve safety (with shielding to block the glare)
  • Help migratory birds



Unshielded public lighting (left) can be replaced by new shielded LED fixtures (center).
