The Times They Are A-Changin’

When Bob Dylan penned this iconic song, the last thing on his mind was remembering to set his watch to standard time. This annoying ritual not only upsets our sleep patterns but creates some real problems for outdoor lighting on commercial properties.

As we move into the dark winter months, your outdoor lighting should be fully-operational at night to provide safe and secure conditions and off during daytime hours to avoid unnecessary utility expense.

This can best be accomplished by:

  • Controlling all parking lot, under-canopy and wall-pack lighting as well as monument signs with photocells
  • Inspect photocells annually and replace at the end of useful life to prevent avoidable failure

And don’t forget to set your clocks back on November 5th when 3:00 am magically becomes 2:00 am.
