Benefits of Choosing Solar Lighting

Solar lighting systems provide security and illumination in needed areas when grid power is unattainable or costly to bring to a site, where a company is looking for a grid alternative to showcase their green initiative, or for companies looking to get LEED points for a new project installation. Solar lights are a great alternative and a cost effective solution for projects like this since there isn’t much for installation costs and zero costs to trench in the grid power.

Why K.I.S.S. Solar LED Lights Need to Come Back

on 1/9/18 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 0 Comments | Solar Lighting LED Lighting Solar Lighting Design
Solar lighting solutions have evolved tremendously over the last decade. We have found ways to increase efficiencies, storage capacities, lumen outputs, and so much more. But adding too many options to systems can jeopardize their functionality and cause more issues in the long run. Keeping it simple (sweetie) will ensure system functionality and have less pieces to maintain over the life of the systems. Here are some ways you can K.I.S.S. your solar lighting system in your design phase.

LED FAQ: What’s Behind the Bulbs?

on 8/22/17 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 1 Comment | General Lighting Guest Post LED Lighting
The LED was first documented in 1962, but has become popular in recent years for a multitude of reasons. It’s unique construction and relativly low environmental impact make it extremely useful in situations from the domestic to the industrial. LEDs come in a wide range of sizes and colors, so the applications are infinite. Understanding how an LED works can be tricky, but when you abandon the jargon, it can be understood relatively easily. If you’re considering using LEDs for a lighting project, understanding how the bulbs work can help you conceptualize and install whatever it is you’re planning. This guide will introduce the science of LEDs, and explain their many applications and benefits.

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.
