Daylight harvesting

Daylight harvesting

Uses available daylight to reduce the amount of electrical light used in a room. Using a combination of windows, skylights, and an automatic control, electric lights are turned off when there is enough daylight to sufficiently light the room and turned on when the daylight levels are too low.
