Scotopic vs Photopic – How We LED Measure and See Light

on 11/7/18 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 0 Comments | LED Lighting Solar Lighting Design
The eye works in many ways. We often see things very differently from one light to the next. Early days of LED fixtures had such a blue light that it was very difficult for most people to deal with. As the blue has been slowly taken out and a more natural white light is being used more often, it is not only changing the way we see light, but also how we should be measuring light. There are tons of scientific articles on the subject, but I wanted to provide something more condensed and simple to understand.

How Solar Lighting Systems Improves Security after a Natural Disaster

on 9/26/18 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 1 Comment | Solar Lighting Design Installation Poles
  With the increase of natural disasters such as hurricanes, floods, and blizzards, off grid solar lighting systems can improve the security of an area since the lights do not rely on utility grid for operation. During most natural disasters, the utility grid can become compromised and fail. Solar outdoor lights can be used to generate light for these areas and provide added security during these downtimes.

Solar Flagpole Light for Parkway South High School

on 3/6/18 10:42 AM By | SEPCO | 1 Comment | Flagpole Lighting Solar Lighting Design
SEPCO recently worked with Parkway South High School to help illuminate their flag. Electrical service was going to be difficult to get to the location of the flag and they were looking for a solution to not have to take it down every night. Since it is good flag etiquette to illuminate a flag from dusk to dawn when leaving it up over night, they started looking for a solar solution.

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

on 1/9/18 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 0 Comments | LED Lighting Solar Lighting Design Solar Lighting
  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.

5 Reasons Why Solar Outdoor Lighting Is Getting More Popular In The Last Decade

on 8/29/17 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 1 Comment | Solar Lighting Solar Lighting Design LED Lighting
Solar outdoor lighting systems have increased in popularity over the last decade for many reasons. The Solar Outdoor Lighting solutions offer grid security and provide light in areas where grid power is still not available, as well as offer green alternatives to obtain power from the sun. Solar outdoor lights are becoming the new normal for new construction projects and also are a cost savings to replace old electrical underground infrastructure on systems that are failing. Here are the top five reasons why solar outdoor lighting is becoming more popular in the last decade.

Learn How to Design a Commercial Solar Lighting Project the Right Way

on 7/25/17 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 2 Comments | Solar Lighting Design
  All lighting projects are basically built using the same formula, and by putting that formula to the next project, you can quickly determine what you need and how to best put that into play. This will cover some of the best practices to learn how to design a solar lighting project from the ground up.

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.

Solar LED Lighting Solutions for Rural Areas

  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.
