Overview
Project Objectives: Parking and exterior lighting designers are not taking full advantage of LED and controls. Easy dimming based on time and/or occupancy could save an additional 40% of energy. Energy codes recently adopted in the Northwest require parking lot lights to be dimmed by 30% after certain hours. This Technology Innovation Project (TIP 391) looks at: How to control lighting while maintaining peoples� perception of safety? When should they be dimmed? At what rate should the dimming occur? How much can they be dimmed and the site still be perceived as safe? 30%? 50%? 70%?
