Day Light Saving and Night Light Sensibility
Day Light Saving Time began, in part, to conserve energy and take advantage of the natural light of the sun into the early evening hours. As modern technology advances, it is debatable whether or not Daylight Saving Time is still a reasonable practice. Many states and countries around the world continue to re-evaluate the issue, but here we go again…in most American cities and towns, we are required to adjust our clocks and “spring” ahead one hour.
New outdoor lighting designs include upgraded finishes, Dark-Sky™* compliant compositions and durable light sources that are geared to provide luxurious night time illumination with little to no maintenance required.

Dark Sky fixtures are crafted so that illumination is properly shielded to focus light downward rather than skyward.
**Energy SMART tm refers to items that use less energy and conserve natural resources. Energy Smart products must adhere to a specific set of standards to be awarded approval for this rating.
***LED (light emitting diode) illumination produces significantly more light per watt and is becoming increasingly available for residential use, especially to light outdoor areas. Whereas incandescent bulbs typically last 1,000-2,000 hours and fluorescent bulbs may last 10,000-15,000 hours, LED bulbs may last 35,000-50,000 hours.
