How to Efficiently Use Solar Flood Lights for Security Lighting

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

Using solar flood lights around a perimeter of a building can increase security, but these bright lights do not need to operate at all times. Since most security flood lights shine outward and cover a large area, they can use a lot of power and produce glare or light trespass on nearby areas. There are different ways to utilize solar security flood lights around a building without disturbing the nearby area, keep the area secure and not breaking the bank. Here are a few options to consider.

Benefits of Solar Powered Security Lights

Posted by SEPCO on 9/24/13 7:30 AM

The best way to keep your parking lot, street corners and public places lit, like parks, clinics and municipal buildings, are the use of solar powered security lights. The reasons are simple; low maintenance, un-compromised performance and zero energy use. 

Maintenance is virtually non-existent. Modern versions are powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery that will last for years before it needs replacement. The high output LED lights will virtually never burn out and the solar panel is maintenance free. Once the light is in place, the only maintenance there will be is to change the battery, and that won't happen for years down the road.

Remote Security & Work Lighting

Posted by SEPCO on 6/12/12 7:30 AM

A large commercial gas company cited the following lighting needs for a remote pump and monitoring station: dusk to dawn security lighting in addition to high intensity work lighting on a bi-monthly basis.  Due to the remote nature of the site, the cost to extend the electrical grid for AC powered lights was cost prohibitive. On the other hand, with off-grid solar lighting systems all costs and issues associated with AC power grid are completely eliminated because the lights do not rely on the AC power grid at all, but rather off-grid through the power of clean, renewable solar energy. What a perfect combination of remote security and solar power.
