New Hampshire Dark Sky Legislation Passes HB585

The legislation will require:

  •  Utility companies to use full cutoff streetlights for all new installations and replacements
  •  The Public Utility agency to set new rates for streetlights that are turned off at midnight
  • Restricts purchases using state funds to fully shielded  streetlights
  •  Directs the New Hampshire DOT to "Explore how energy and maintenance costs can be reduced by  replacing existing   luminaries with lower-wattage, fully shielded luminaries or  by eliminating roadway lighting altogether where appropriate." http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/legislation/2009/HB0585.html
