Piedmonts March 2000 code specified the correct orientation of buildings external lighting systems - to be lit from above, aside from monuments - and street lighting. The code further established technical standards for efficiency, distance and light flow regulation to reduce noctural light pollution and improve energy efficiency. In reducing light pollution, Piedmont sought to protect research activities of astromonical observatories. Provinces verify the rational use of energy for external artificial lighting in town centers and other public and private spaces. Existing lighting systems were required to comply before 2010.
