In addition, permanent and more traditional LED holiday lighting products will be on display, as well as a new truly unique LED ribbon lighting product that is the only UL-approved LED ribbon available today that is suitable for a wet location.

Mead Completes Green Homes Certificate Program

In May, Mead Noss (owner of Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Colorado), completed the 13-week long Green Homes Certificate Program at the Colorado State University (CSU) Denver campus.


The program is conducted by CSU’s Institute for the Built Environment and focusses on residential building strategies and tools, including the major rating systems – LEED-Homes®, Built Green, and ENERGY STAR. CSU is the Rocky Mountain region’s leading university in green design and construction management education. The certificate program coursework focussed on the following topics in green residential building, new construction and remodeling:

  • Residential green building in Colorado
  • Site and home design – first steps toward a green home
  • Energy efficient envelope – the backbone of a green home
  • High performance HVAC systems for new, remodeled and existing homes
  • Indoor environmental quality
  • Field trip: home performance testing demonstrations; green homes visits
  • Sustainable and healthy building and finish materials/products
  • Natural home building techniques
  • Design charrette
  • Construction waste recycling, deconstruction, remodeling
  • Green rating systems: LEED®-Homes; Built Green, Energy Star

Of primary interest to Mead and Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Colorado, are the new energy-efficient lighting technologies (LED (light-emitting diode), CFL – compact fluorescents) as well as off-grid power options including solar photovoltaics and wind turbine energy.

Mead said that Colorado is at the epicenter of alternative energy research and implementation in the country. The information and contacts that I’ve made through this progam will help to position OLP of Colorado to take advantage of this new technology – and to provide our current and future customers these green lighting options.
