Solar Lighting for Farming and Cannabis Projects
Solar LED lighting systems can be used for many projects around a farming or cannabis growing area, including for streets, parking lots, and signs.
Learn about how solar lighting can be utilized, helping farmers and growers save money and become more sustainable for our future.
Increase your farm or cannabis cultivation facility'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 farm or cannabis cultivation facility reduces your impact on the environment by lowering your energy requirements while also lowering the installation impact on the surrounding area.
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
Street entrances and roads around farming facilities, including cannabis cultivation facilities, are necessary for workers to get around. At night, providing some illumination provides safety and security of the nightshift workers.
Employee and visitor parking lots around farming and cannabis facilities should be well illuminated at night to ensure good visibility and safety of their person and belongings. Using the same solar LED lighting systems as on the roadways can ensure that everyone feels safe. These lights can also be reduced when no one is present and then brought to full intensity when motion is detected.
Entrance and directional signs are important to let people know where you are and how to get around your complex. Since signs are typically installed without the power grid in mind, using solar is a great way to illuminate those signs and not add any additional energy costs. Solar can power both flood illuminated and internally illuminated signs – a versatile solution.
