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.

Outdoor Solar Lighting Solutions to Exterior Illumination Needs

on 10/23/14 3:27 PM By | SEPCO | 1 Comment | Solar Lighting Parking Lot Lighting Pathway Lighting
We've become a very energy conscious society these days, going from fossil fuels and the old format of electricity to more renewable resources. One of the most popular areas to make this change has been in the area of lighting. Standard electric is great but can get quite costly over time, as a result people are starting to turn toward an outdoor solar lighting option in order to recoup some of the money they've been spending in order to light their locations. Going solar is the best move in many cases, but there are other things to consider when you're taking the leap from one lighting option to another. Probably the biggest question to ask is what the application of your lighting will be, is this something that is being used to light a parking lot at a business, are you putting up lights along the side of a road that will help drivers see where they're headed at night, or are you putting up lighting in a public park so that people taking a walk in the night hours can see their way along the path? Depending on the location you'll have to weigh the options, once you've made a decision to go solar, the choice of lighting styles becomes a bit easier.
