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.

So I was browsing the internet looking for one final post to write for the year (well, writing now, not publishing last, but anyways) and I came across this great video from a Google Hangout between Lisa Reed from Envision Lighting Design and Greg Aranda from Graybar. The original post is Shedding Light on LED Lighting and it is a great article that goes over the new LED technology and some basic information. The video at the end of the post, or just below, shines even more light on the topic of LEDs and I wanted to share this information with you all.

Solar LED Lights Provide Security and Reduce Energy Consumption

Posted by SEPCO on 10/2/14 9:30 AM

Most lighting installations in the past have used high pressure sodium lamps; however, these lamps produce a yellowish light that does not allow for good visibility. Using LED lights provide a whiter and more natural light to provide better lighting overall, and even though they look brighter, are much dimmer than the old HPS lamps. This provides a great cost savings since the amount of power required to light these fixtures is much less with a much lower power loss factor.
