Sustainable lighting

Sustainable lightingSustainable lighting is illumination which is provided in an eco-friendly manner. The concept of sustainability is to use up fewer resources than are capable of being replenished. When it comes to lighting, this may be accomplished in a few ways.

Perhaps the most sustainable lighting option is to make the most of passive solar potential. In simpler terms, this means allowing plenty of natural daylight into the home. This can be done with strategically placed windows, as well as the smart use of skylights. Of course, it is important to balance this optimization of natural lighting with the optimization of heat.

Another method for achieving sustainable lighting is through active solar technology. Solar photovoltaic panels create electricity from the rays of the sun. This energy can then be stored into batteries for later use.
