AES Indiana’s light display consists of energy-efficient, long-lasting bulbs and is controlled via a computer.  Each window in the AES Indiana building holds one LED luminar with a set of 12 red, green and blue LED lights. When mixed, the computer controller can produce more than 16 million different hues. Lights run from sundown to the following morning.

Requests can be made by sending an email to AES Indiana Community Relations,, at least four weeks in advance of requested date. AES Indiana makes every effort to honor window light requests.
