Lighting Feature: Missouri City, Texas Home Finally Sees the Light

Five 9-watt 'Volterra' LED WL1 well lights illuminate the front of this Missouri City, Texas home to accent the stone, stucco textures and the corbels under the eaves. All of the peaks on the house were softly accented with 'Ravenna' brass LED MR16 bullet lights.
Four LED AL1-III area lights (1.8-watt bi-pins) define the sidewalk and steps. The two large live oaks on either side of the home are lit by 12-watt LED WLC-11 well lights, two for each tree. The pecan tree and the large oak by the street are lit in the same manner. The glass lenses of the well lights installed on the grass areas have copper covers to prevent any damage or impedance to mowing.
The three-tiered fountain (right) has two LED Kichler underwater lights, and is uplit by one bullet light. A Ravenna LED directional spotlight accents the top of the fountain from above.

Lighting Feature: Utah Freedom Memorial

The Utah Freedom Memorial sits on the south end of Sandy City Hall. Sandy, Utah (87,461) is a suburb of Salt Lake City, just 13 miles south of the capital. The city donated the ground, hundreds of volunteer hours and $25,000 for the project. City officials had little experience working with low-voltage (12-volt) lighting, and were concerned that because the power supply was 250 feet distant of the memorial space, the voltage would drop off too much and not provide enough power for the lighting. The solution was LEDs, which draw so little power that voltage drop is minimized. Balanced voltage was delivered to each 12-volt LED light. City officials were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of the lighting.
