Outdoor Lighting Perspectives (OLP), a leader in residential outdoor lighting systems, is happy to announce they will be speaking at the American Society of Landscape Architect's (ASLA) annual meeting in September 2009.
Outdoor Lighting Perspectives has been chosen to speak at the ASLA 2009 meeting on Friday, September 18, 2009, in Chicago, Illinois. Winston Edwards and Jim Hilliard of OLP will present "Night Sky Ordinance Compliance is Easily Met with Eco-friendly Low Voltage Lighting Systems."
"The dark sky movement has been gaining popularity in the last few years;" said Winston Edwards, a lighting specialist with Outdoor Lighting Perspectives. "Through this presentation, our goal is to educate the members of the ASLA on what dark sky ordinances are and the reasons behind them. Despite what people may think, dark sky ordinances don't aim to eliminate outdoor lighting all together. They strive to find a balance between appropriate amounts of light and the ability to appreciate the starry skies."
In the presentation, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives will describe how proper landscape lighting design will provide efficient illumination to an area as well as comply with dark sky ordinances. Some topics of discussion include direction, intensity and the spread of light.
