The Smart Outdoor Lighting Alliance (SOLA) promotes smart, sustainable and ecologically responsible outdoor lighting using new technologies and best practices in lighting design.
SOLA provides independent information for cities on smart lighting solutions based on the most current scientific research. We seek out the most innovative lighting technologies, products and companies, and review their performance, their interoperability and their real-world effectiveness. We promote visibility and safety research to support the goal of reducing total global lumens .
SOLA is a 501c3 non-profit formed in 2001 to help communities install safe and efficient outdoor lighting and enact comprehensive community lighting standards and zoning ordinances.
We are developing workshops that will be available by webinar and are currently available for on-site training and design consultation.
As a non-profit organization, we are always seeking funding and recruiting partners to support this effort. If you want to support the mission of providing guidance to communities in their quest to adopt smart outdoor lighting, please contact Bob Parks at bparks “at” sola.lighting.
