Proposed upgrades include more than twice the current lighting levels of the falls, programmable lighting opportunities, and a broader, more robust colour spectrum. As well, given the technology improvements, the newly enhanced lighting system will eliminate dark gaps, while providing greater energy efficiencies and reduced maintenance costs.
Nightly illumination of the falls continued through construction that began last month. An official lighting ceremony takes place on Thursday, December 1st.
Established in 1925, The Niagara Falls Illumination Board consists of representatives from the cities of Niagara Falls N.Y. and Ontario, Ontario Power Generation, The Niagara Parks Commission and the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. This board pays for the nightly illumination of the falls
