Resources: Outdoor lighting

Light what you need, not your neighbors or the sky. Lighting your neighbor’s house is a nuisance; lighting the sky wastes energy and creates light pollution. Read my post on light pollution, then choose your outdoor lighting carefully.

The resources cited in this post have not been vetted – they contain fixtures or advice that create light pollution, but you should be able to find non-polluting fixtures here too.

Your local cities, counties, or states may have regulations that govern outdoor lighting. Be aware of them.
