Buildings that enroll in Ohio Lights Out pledge to reduce lighting by taking as many of the following steps as possible:

  • Turn off exterior decorative lighting
  • Dim lobby and atrium lighting
  • Turn off interior lights or draw blinds, especially on upper floors
  • Consider reducing the reflectivity of glass surfaces, especially those adjacent to green spaces

We recommend reducing or eliminating lighting during the following periods:

  • Between midnight and dawn
  • Fall: August 15 to October 31
  • Spring: March 15 to June 1
