7:00 Nadene Parzych of Landscape Forms presents: "LEDs for Pedestrian & Pathway Lights: Design, Ecology, Technology"

 

Course Summary:
Advanced technology has made LED-lighting a viable solution for outdoor environments. The unwanted side-effects of traditional lighting: wasted energy, maintenance costs, and the negative visual and environmental impacts of over-illumination, are driving the adoption of LED lighting for many projects. This session covers cutting edge information about human interaction with color, contrast, and glare that enhance the visual experience while protecting the environment. Solid State/LED technology is an important facet to sustainable site design. Nadene Parzych AP will present concepts that leave participants armed to evaluate LED-lighting for future projects. (LA/CES one credit course)
