Major change in israel.
      #5198767 - 04/30/12 06:16 PM

Hi all,

Sevral months ago i decided to do a move that will change my country for good in the lp area.

i've gathered engeneeris and experts that will give me the best solutions forthe lp problem.

After a lot of meetings and research...
My group now is ready with a presntation for the big meeting with the mayor.
the goal is to take one big city in israel and make here an exemple and than duplicate her.

we have a budget of half a million dollars for start.

next week will be smarter.

My friend is putting next month 30 full cutoff led lights for start in a well known area that every one will enjoy the new and good lights.

My children will see the sky again.

Regards
Tzukran Michael

Congratulations on making something happen.

When you are finished in Israel you can come to South Florida and do it here.

Mazel Tov and congratulations. I live in Mitzpe Ramon and give star tours there. I've been trying to figure out what to do about light pollution here since we came to Israel 2 years ago. I would love to connect with you. By far the worst light pollution here comes from the IDF officer training school, B"D Echad. They just installed some new lights that are brighter than a soccer stadium, and they leave them on for most of the night. What they are for, I have no idea. They seem to be illuminating nothing but empty desert. I would love to be able to turn them off. See my web site below and be in touch.

This is wonderful to hear!

Will the LED lights you are thinking of installing be dimmable?
