Very sensible idea. The light pollution in the countryside is appalling.
Did I read recently about a similar proposal for street lights? The villages round us over the last few years seem to have been having a competition to see who can install the most lamp posts and I swear that our nearest village has more lights thaninhabitants and it's very rare indeed to see anyone abouit after 9pm, if not earlier, yet the lights seem to be on all night
