Be Sure to Keep Covered – Correctly – When Installing Outdoor Power

In these days of COVID-19, a lot of us are spending more time outdoors. It’s the safest place for small gatherings, these days, even as the days start to get cooler. It’s nice to be able to plug in a speaker or TV – maybe even a small table lamp, for the evening – to make those outdoor spaces feel a little more like a living room or den that just happens to be located under the stars.

Don’t Be Blue – Outdoor Lighting Has Warmed Up

Correlated color temperature (CCT) has become a hot topic in commercial outdoor lighting, as many have argued LED-based fixtures are just too, well, cool.
