Solar Lighting for City and Municipality Projects

Solar LED lighting systems can be used for many projects around a city and municipality, including for streets, parking lots, parks, trails, and much more.

Learn about how solar lighting can be utilized, helping cities and municipalities save money and become more sustainable for our future.

Increased Safety

Increase your city's safety and security, especially from natural disasters and blackouts. Solar isn't affected by many of these issues and can be a reliable lighting source. That way, no matter what mother nature throws at you, you know that your community can depend on the lights.

Reduce Environmental Impact

Utilizing solar LED lighting systems for your city or municipality will reduce your impact on the environment. This is achieved by lowering your energy usage and reliance on the power grid while costing the city nothing for power.

Reduce Costs

Installation, maintenance, and utility costs are all associated with lighting. Using solar eliminates the utility costs, while also reducing maintenance and installation costs. No additional wiring, underground utilities, high voltage lines, or the like is required. With solar, you just set the pole and forget it, with the first maintenance five years out in most cases, sometimes longer.

Streets & Roadways

Streets and roadways illuminated by solar LED lighting systems provide cities and municipalities with a renewable way to provide illumination. Not only is solar the perfect choice in areas where the grid power doesn't exist, like in rural or remote areas, but it can also decrease their dependency on utilities in main areas. 

Parking Lots

City and municipality facility parking lots require illumination for nighttime workers to provide added safety and security. Solar can fill the gap when traditional grid power doesn't exist at a site, or the city is looking to increase its safety without increasing utility costs.

Parks & Playgrounds

Parks are a great way to create a community space. Illuminating these spaces after dark can extend the time when community members can use the area, or for security purposes after closing. Parks and playgrounds can be a great place to utilize solar lighting systems as they do not require traditional grid power installation, which can disturb the surrounding natural areas.


City and municipality entrance signs are at times located in very remote areas, way outside the grid extension. Solar can easily fill in and provide power for internal LED signs or power a floodlight or two, or four, to illuminate a large monument sign. Solar has even been used for many other types of signs, such as banners, billboards and more.
