The Light Skirt is finally up and running and it looks just as cool as we'd hoped. Our Lighting Designer, Greg Day of DayMatero Studio, came up with Steve Barlock of Visible Light, Supplier of all LEDs in the project including the Light Skirt fixtures, to program the lights, choose the colors, and make some final adjustments. The barn glows GREEN when it is producing more energy than it consumes; YELLOW indicates a borderline condition; RED means that energy usage is current higher than required to meet our yearly NET ENERGY goal. These colors are indicators of real-time energy usage, and will soon be visible on our website. The first photo shows the LEDs in the shower. Pretty dramatic, eh?
