VIDEO: Dark Skies Over Torrey

Think all ioby projects are in cities? Think again!

This is one of our very favorite recent projects, in the tiny, rural community of Torrey, Utah.

Dark Skies Over Torrey is a resident-led project to help the small community of Torrey, Utah become the state’s first dark sky community. The first stage, funded on ioby, replaced all of Torrey’s public streetlights with fully shielded, dark-sky friendly, LED lights. Subsequent phases of the project will help Torrey residents replace privately owned lights that are out of compliance with Torrey’s Dark Sky ordinance, and will launch an education program for local businesses, residents, and tourists about the benefits of dark sky lighting.
