Energy Star: Many outdoor fixtures that use efficient compact fluorescent bulbs are labeled Energy Star (although not all of them are). Energy Star lights (both indoor and outdoor) have been tested and approved to meet strict energy requirements and can save you money over time. Energy Star rated efficiency is particularly useful for outdoor lights, since they`re often left on overnight.
If you`re preparing for a renovation or outdoor update, you may want to consider choosing outdoor lights that meet certain environmental standards. A growing number of states and localities are adopting regulations that mandate energy efficient lighting or Dark Sky lighting. Even if your area doesn`t have specific requirements yet, it may be well worth your investment.
