Shading Concerns for Solar Lighting for Parking Lots

on 6/13/17 10:30 AM By | SEPCO | 2 Comments | Solar Lighting Parking Lot Lighting Installation
  Solar energy is a great source that offers free energy year round. However, the power production of a solar panel can be greatly affected by shading. It is best for each location to be analyzed for optimum sun exposure. SEPCO specializes in stand-alone battery powered systems that operate our solar lighting for parking lots installations. Our systems are designed for a specific amount of power for each night. Therefore, it is important to be able to calculate exactly how much energy the system is producing as there is no back up power from the electrical grid when shading occurs.

SolarViper Systems Illuminate Great Lawrence Family Health Center Parking

  SEPCO worked closely with Electrical Dynamics, Inc in Lawrence MA to provide lighting to a project where grid power wasn’t feasible. A small triangle parking lot for the Great Lawrence Family Health Center had no lighting for their patients, especially after the sun goes down in the winter months. Solar lighting systems are the best option to provide the required lighting without the high costs of trenching and construction of the surrounding area to bring in grid power.

Simple Solar Lighting and Power Facts – How Long Will A System Last

on 3/14/17 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 1 Comment | Solar Lighting Solar Power Solar Lighting Design
  Commercial solar lighting and solar power systems have a great life span if sized appropriately. Each component has a different life span, but as a system in whole, the solar light should last 30 or more years with proper maintenance. Let’s go over each component and dissect how the systems should operate over the 30+ years.

Simple Solar Lighting and Power Facts – Solar Outside the Sun Belt

on 2/7/17 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 1 Comment | Solar Lighting Solar Power Solar Lighting Design Installation
  Solar power assemblies are installed all over the world for lighting and power configurations. Solar sized properly can be installed in almost any location. Solar installations inside the Sun Belt are more efficient and require much less power since there is more available sun as well as shorter nights, but that does not mean that solar cannot be used outside the Sun Belt.
