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 | 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.

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 LED Lighting Solar Lighting Design
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.

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.
