Obstruction lighting on wind farms has ensured the safety of pilots and passengers for many years. However, dimming the lights has increasingly become an important mitigation factor for today’s wind projects. In fact, in just three years, the majority of wind projects announced or built in Canada have chosen to install light mitigation measures using LIDSTM (Lighting Intensity Dimming Solution) technology). With LIDSTM technology, the light intensity automatically adjusts to the surrounding visibility. This reduces light pollution, while keeping the sky safe for pilots.
