Light pollution has become a huge concern and a campaign movement to reduce the effects of unnatural light in the environment and cutting down on energy usage was started back in 1988. Many cities and counties across the US are now Dark Sky compliant. Outdoor lighting rated for Dark Sky must have full cutoff sheilds so no light is directed upward, light is directed down only. Dark Sky compliant outdoor lighting designs are more decorative and more options than 10 years ago. From modern, contemporary to traditional and transitional, you can find just about any style outdoor light with the Dark Sky approval. Not limited to finishes either, antique brass, chrome, satin nickel, black, white, painted finishes, bronze, galvanized, polished brass and the list goes on. Skies the limit when it comes to finding the right Dark Sky outdoor light for your projects.
