New Solar Lighting Options with LEDs

Posted by SEPCO on 10/11/16 10:00 AM

 

Many years ago, when solar lighting was in its infancy, all people would think of is the huge solar panels with the standard industrial fixtures that were starting to show up. The low lumen output of old style lamps required such high wattages to be used, wasting power and having power losses that had to be taken into consideration.

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.

Wattage vs Lumens: Know the Difference for Better Lighting

Posted by SEPCO on 7/5/16 10:00 AM

With the push for LED lighting, there is a lot to take into consideration now for lighting levels. One of the biggest arguments is a light Wattage versus the Lumens and determining brightness. The old way of looking at how bright a light will be is to look at the wattage, and with incandescent lamps, the higher the wattage the lamp is, the brighter it is. Now we need to focus on the Lumens of the lamp to determine the brightness of the lamp, especially when it comes to LEDs.

Commercial vs Non-Commercial Solar Lights

Posted by SEPCO on 5/24/16 10:00 AM

So a solar light is a solar light…right? Well, not really. There are many different types of solar lighting systems using many different types of technologies. The solar lights you find at your local home improvement stores are much different than the ones being manufactured for commercial applications. And depending on what the customer wants to spend on a system or the overall project requirements, the variations can be great.

Options for Commercial Solar Outdoor Lighting Systems

Posted by SEPCO on 7/13/15 10:00 AM

About 15 years ago or so, there were very few options for commercial solar outdoor lighting systems, but as technologies advance, more and more options are available for a custom system for your application. Solar light fixtures have advanced through the use of LEDs and aimed optics to allow for a range of commercial and decorative style lighting systems. Controls have also advanced to allow for adaptive lighting, motion operation, split timing and so much more. Solar has also come down in price while increased in efficiency for the size of the panels.
