Green Term Defined: Light Shelf


Green Term Defined: Light Shelf

A light shelf is a horizontal overhanging element located above the eye-level and typically having a highly reflective upper surface. Sunlight hits the top of the light shelf and bounces inside of the structure hitting the ceiling. This brings light deeper into the structure that reduces energy usage for lighting and glare.
