Discount LED bulbs offered to farmers
News from Bethany Beach Wave:

GREENWOOD — The Delaware Electric Cooperative is planning to help poultry farmers in its service area convert from incandescent and compact fluorescent lights to the more energy-efficient LED lights.

LEDs use about 80 percent less energy than traditional poultry lights, the co-op noted. The co-op anticipates each six-flock poultry house will be able to save $ 983 per year by installing the lights.

The co-op will offer LED bulbs to poultry farmers for about $ 7 per bulb through the grant program. The bulbs typically cost about $ 35.

The co-op assigned $ 75,000 for the program in 2012, with $ 30,000 more coming from the Delaware Energy Efficiency Investment Fund. The fund is a state program collected through the Public Utilities Tax.

The fund was not expressly intended to be spent by utilities —- other recipients include businesses doing efficiency projects —- but “the co-op was really novel in bringing this proposal to us,” said Carolyn Snyder, director of the state’s Division of Energy & Climate.

The lights can last up to nine years, said Bill Andrew, co-op president and CEO.

Bill Roenigk, vice president of the National Chicken Council in Washington, said chickens tend to eat more when the lights are on. That, he said, makes the birds bigger more quickly. LED lighting will help farmers save money in that effort, he said. continues on Bethany Beach Wave

Students study the Dan Flavin sculpture ‘monument for V. Tatlin,’ a representative example of Flavin’s use of mass-produced fluorescent light.

How do you light a work of light? The staff at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University faced that dilemma earlier this month when they installed the two large works that comprise Light Works: Dan Flavin and Robert Irwin. It took a team of experts three days to feel like they got it right.

Artists don’t always provide installation instructions for their work, and if they do, there are still a lot of variables to manage with each presentation, and much of the written word is left to interpretation. Museum professionals use artist’s notes the way actors follow stage directions: to recreate what the artist intended. With visual art, the wall color, height, location within the gallery and lighting all contribute to the viewers’ experience. What was he thinking? is not just a rhetorical que…………… continues on Stanford Report
