Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly more popular for many reasons. Not only do they save you money at the pump, they also are a healthy alternative to modern forms of transportation. And the amount of emissions given off is decreasing as technology for these vehicles increases. The more of these cars on the road means less pollution in our air. Studies have shown future electric vehicles will emit little to no pollution. The infographic lays out the health benefits and overall advantages that come with these vehicles. The downside is that they do not have the distance capability like gas-fueled cars. However, studies have shown that soon they will be able to outperform their gas-guzzling counterpart.

Illuminated Signs with Solar Lights For Advertising And Marketing

on 12/4/12 9:30 AM By | SEPCO | 0 Comments | Solar Lighting
Solar powered signs are being introduced at businesses, schools, hospitals and governmental office across the country as a way to advertise and market services. The signs are standard signs but are illuminated by solar lights to create an attractive and functional mechanism to get a message out. The signs combine solar power with current sign building techniques, therefore requiring no special modification to existing signs. The solar panel and light can either be mounted on the top of the sign or can be located a short distance from the sign. The solar panel harnesses solar energy during the day then provides the energy required to operate the solar lights that then illuminates the sign after dark.  The biggest cost saver; the sign does not require the infrastructure that is takes to connect to electric lines as a power source. These sun-charged illuminated signs are quickly gaining in popularity. This can be explained by the economical benefits of the energy savings realized by not paying into the grid. There are also associated practical benefits. These types of signs can be used in remotes spots where grid connection can be complicated and expensive. Solar panels can solve this problem. For example, remote sections of parking lots can be illuminated to provide better security. The illuminated signs can also be utilized for many other purposes including advertising and marketing. They could be used to illuminate signs at schools or municipal buildings to announce upcoming events past regular hours. The signs can even be used by a Realtor to give an edge over competition by illuminating a sign to advertise a house for sale beyond normal daylight hours.
