Established in 1988, the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) is an educational, environmental 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting and preserving the nighttime environment and our heritage of dark skies through quality outdoor lighting. EcoBrite Outdoors' units are fully Dark Sky compliant, meaning that absolutely no light is emitted above the horizontal plane (“90°” line) above the luminaire. IDA analyzes the ULOR (Upward Light Output Ratio) of a luminaire—that is, the amount of upward flux a fixture produces. Photometric analysis is done by IDA staff using state-of-the-art software at the International Dark-Sky Association’s Tucson, Arizona headquarters.
