SolarViper Systems Illuminate Great Lawrence Family Health Center Parking

Posted by SEPCO on 5/23/17 10:02 AM

 

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.

Solar LED Lighting Solutions for Rural Areas

Posted by SEPCO on 5/16/17 10:00 AM

 

Rural areas have less infrastructure; therefore, making access to power and lighting more difficult and costly. Solar provides the power for many of these applications at a fraction of the cost to bring in the required power, especially with the cost of solar decreasing at a rapid rate.

Lockport Powerhouse Solar Powered LED Flagpole Light

Posted by SEPCO on 5/9/17 10:00 AM

 

In an area near the Lockport Powerhouse, a flag was being installed on this historic site, but bringing power to this specific location was difficult. Since flags are to be illuminated from dusk to dawn, solar powered LED flagpole light systems came to the rescue.

4 Factors That Could Affect a Solar Street Light Proposal

Posted by SEPCO on 3/28/17 10:00 AM

There are many different factors to consider when putting together a solar street light proposal. Not many people know all the considerations required, but here is a list of a few little-known factors that can make the specification process a little less stressful. With this information, you will be able to not only create a better specification, but ensure that solar is the right fit for your application.

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

Posted by SEPCO on 3/14/17 10:00 AM

 

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 – Why to Size for Worst Case

Posted by SEPCO on 2/14/17 10:00 AM

 

Sizing up a solar lighting or power system can be a difficult task. There are two major ways for getting all the calculations correct for two completely different types of systems; grid tied and off grid. Understanding the way your system will operate will make sure you get the correct information to size the system properly.

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

Posted by SEPCO on 2/7/17 10:00 AM

 

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.

Simple Solar Lighting and Power Facts – How the Lights Turn On & Off?

Posted by SEPCO on 1/31/17 10:00 AM

 

The basic controls of a solar light system are, for the most part, quite simple. The solar lights turn on at dusk and off at dawn if using dusk to dawn configuration, or turn on at dusk and operate according to the preset configurations. We wanted to cover exactly how the solar lights understand when dusk and dawn is by breaking it down.

Simple Solar Lighting and Power Facts – How Does Shade Affect Solar?

Posted by SEPCO on 1/24/17 10:00 AM

 

How does shade affect solar? This one should be a simple answer, right? Well yes and no. Shade will render solar inoperable while it is being shaded; however, systems can be oversized to take advantage of times when it is not shaded. But the general consensus is trim trees, place the solar in the sunniest location possible, and keep it out of the shade.
