Solar Lighting Design Guide – Determine Power Assembly

Posted by SEPCO on 2/2/16 10:00 AM

Part 5 of the solar lighting design guide is about determining the power assembly. Now that you know what area of coverage you are requiring by determining the lumen requirements for the project, as well as the required operation profile, it is time to determine what size solar power assembly will be required. This is determined by a simple calculation after some additional information is gathered.

Solar Lighting Design Guide – Choose a Fixture Style

Posted by SEPCO on 1/5/16 10:00 AM

Designing a solar lighting system starts out with choosing a fixture style to use on a project. Each fixture has its benefits for every type of application. Flood lights are good for large or small areas, such as directional uplighting or wall washing, whereas overhead fixtures provide better lighting for applications such as roadways, parking lots, etc. Our partnership with Hubbell Lighting brands provides the highest quality LED lighting fixtures to cover nearly all applications.

Why Trench When You Can Use Solar Lighting Systems?

Posted by SEPCO on 10/5/15 10:00 AM

One of the largest costs associated with new lighting projects is the cost of trenching in the electric from the main source. Trenching not only costs more, but it tears up the surrounding area and damages landscaping, structures, and pathways. This can be the most costly part of a lighting project since all surrounding areas now need to be repaired.

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.
