Why Solar Powered LED Street Lights Should Become the New Norm

Posted by SEPCO on 10/18/16 10:00 AM


Typical, street lights use highly inefficient HID lamps that drain the grid of electricity and cost untold millions of dollars a year to power and maintain. Obviously street lights are needed for the safety of travelers at night, but why does so much money need to be wasted by powering these inefficient old standards of lighting? Instead, high performance, energy efficient LED lights should replace energy hogging HID street lights and become the new street lighting standard.

Solar Lighting and Off-Grid Solar Power

Posted by SEPCO on 9/6/16 10:00 AM

Most people are familiar with solar panels to power a home or building, or used to heat water, but many people overlook the multitude of other uses for solar. Solar can be used to light up a pathway, light up the building’s parking lot, or even be used to light entire streets and highways. Each light can be powered by a single solar array or you can string multiple lights together and run them on a single larger solar array. Whatever the application or need, solar can be used to power it.

Energy Efficient Lighting - Why This is a Must

Posted by SEPCO on 8/16/16 10:00 AM


Lighting has been one of the great success stories in energy efficiency of the last quarter of the 20th Century. And it could become another great success story of the next few years as we proceed further into the 21st Century. Advances are happening so fast that it is hard to keep up. Efficiency ratings double almost yearly and once the technology is released to the public, the next advance is being worked on, making the new product almost irrelevant by the time it is purchased and installed...sounds like your cell phone doesn't it.

How Wind Turbines Work (Infographic)

Posted by SEPCO on 8/2/16 10:00 AM

The modern marvel that is the wind turbine is doing amazing things to produce clean energy. Since as far back as 200 B.C., windmills have been used to grind grain or draw water, but electricity didn't start being produced until 1888. Those first turbines aren't as efficient as the ones we are deploying all over the world today, but it is great to look back on where we started from.


Today, wind power systems generate power for schools, buildings, homes and so much more. Take a look at what makes these massive windmills work and see how the energy is produced in this great graphic below:
