One evening I looked out and my whole backyard was lit up. A light had been installed on the telephone pole in our backyard. The light is bright enough so that we don’t need to turn on the lights in our bathrooms at night.
It seems bright enough to read by and it will be interesting to see if it attracts insects in the summer, it has a yellowish tint so maybe not.
I did a little research to find out where it came from. It turns out some neighbors ordered it through the Xcel energy additional lighting program.
They had to pay for installation and they have to pay an electric bill for the light each month and they will have to pay for maintenance.
Some of my neighbors leave outdoor lights on all night and the new light isn’t the only extra nightlight near my home. It never gets dark in my yard, not ever.
