Dark Sky LEDs

Year: 2014

Grant Amount: $10,000

This is a pilot installation of upgraded streetlights on the UT campus in line with steps to achieve Dark Sky Certification, a photometric qualification system by the International Dark Sky Association (IDA). While this installation is only one step, Dark Sky compliance provides an opportunity to maximize energy efficiency and reduce pollution while simultaneously gaining recognition as an environmentally friendly campus. Installation of LED streetlights along Speedway enhances the quality of life for all UT students, staff, and faculty, as well as animals and birds within the urban ecosystem.
