Event description

Description

Community friendly lighting is a new approach to public lighting that emphasizes lighting quality, visual comfort and improved visibility using white light. Lighting fixtures that mitigate glare using innovative optical design and appropriate color temperature enable lighting designs that preserve neighborhood character and ambiance while enhancing the quality of life and enticing community interaction after dark.

Join us for a lecture with Bob Sparks, the founder of the Virginia Outdoor Lighting Taskforce (VOLT), an all-volunteer, non-profit, grassroots advocacy group working for safe and efficient environmental lighting. In 2014, he found Smart Outdoor Lighting Alliance (SOLA) to promote Smart Urban Lighting and ecologically responsible lighting design.

SOLA developed the Community Friendly Lighting Program in 2017 to provide specific guidelines for public lighting best practices. The program includes pro bono consulting, a lighting equipment certification program and a municipal designation for communities that deploy LED lighting that meet its best practice requirements.

LA CES pending.

Thanks to our sponsor: Neri.
