Use Solar Powered Traffic Flashers to Increase Safety

Posted by SEPCO on 10/30/12 9:30 AM

Traffic warning flashers are the perfect applications for off-grid solar power solutions. These safety devices are needed to warn drivers of upcoming obstacles and hazards on the roadway.  The flashers are often located in areas where the electrical grid is not available. Solar powered traffic flashers can be used at these locations without the need for the electrical grid. Solar panels produce their own electrical energy that is stored in batteries which are used to power the flashers. As an added benefit, the flashers will still function during power outages.

Solar Lamp Post Lights: Forgotten Commercial Solar Lights

Posted by SEPCO on 10/23/12 9:30 AM

Residences are the primary users of lamp post lights. These lights are generally controlled by either a photo sensor or a switch. These lights provide additional safety by lighting a small area, typically in the front yard of a home. However, these typically beautiful lights can be used in many other applications.

Solar Bollard Lights: Forgotten Commercial Solar Lights

Posted by SEPCO on 10/11/12 9:30 AM

Bollard lights are popular in pathway and walkway applications. These too can be powered by solar panels. Large panel assemblies can power multiple fixtures with the solar power assemblies being fit into the surrounding landscaping, or there are solar bollard fixtures that have the solar panels fit into the top of the bollard. There are two major differences between these two applications; larger solar means higher powered lighting and smaller, built in solar panels provide lower power lighting.

AHGC Solar Parking Lot Lighting: Blast from the Past

Posted by SEPCO on 10/9/12 7:30 AM

In 1999 SEPCO provided 12 custom solar parking lot lighting systems to Anaheim Hills Golf Club in California. These systems were purchased through a bid by the City of Anaheim Hills to provide sustainable lighting that would save money and improve security.

Solar Dock Lights: Forgotten Commercial Solar Lights

Posted by SEPCO on 10/4/12 9:30 AM

On any coastal town, docks are a familiar sight to see. A lot of times people go out early in the morning and come home late at night. Providing power for lighting to these areas can be complicated, especially if no infrastructure is nearby. Solar power for the dock lights can be the perfect solution, as well as solar for powering small tools needed for the maintenance of the boat and dock alike.

Art Imitates Life: The Future of Street Lighting

Posted by SEPCO on 10/2/12 9:30 AM

If you pay close attention to the award winning Pixar movie, WALL-E, you will see that every outdoor street light you see in the movie is powered by solar energy. Hats-off to Pixar animators for their accurate assessment of the future of street lighting! Indeed, due to ongoing advances in solid state LED lighting and off-grid solar power technology respectively, the question is not IF all street lights will be powered by solar energy…but WHEN!

Ongoing advances in solid state LED lighting are centered around ‘lumens per watt’—i.e. the amount of light solid state LED chips can create through a given amount of energy. In the same way that computer chips have become ever smaller and more powerful over the years (ex. the computing power of the new I-Phone 5 would have taken an entire floor full of computers 30+ years ago), the amount of light that LED chips are capable of creating with given amount of energy continues to expand at a rapid pace. As such, it is only a matter of time before a LED street light fixture can produce the same/better light output of today’s high power street light fixtures with a tiny fraction of the energy.
