Why Use Commercial Solar Lighting?

See why solar lighting is becoming the go to option

Commercial solar lighting systems have been increasing in popularity over the last 10 years. Not only are there cost savings both with installation and over time, providing a green option to standard grid tied lighting allows owners to take control of their environmental impact.

 

Off Grid with Battery Backup

The systems are completely self-sustained and off grid. The systems work no matter if the grid power is functioning or not, making them a sound investment for security or areas prone to blackouts. There is also a battery backup that provides 5 days of backup power storage for days of inclement weather or after a large storm.

Cost Savings

There is absolutely no electric bill associated with off grid solar lighting systems. Just install the system anywhere it is needed and watch it shine. It does all the work for you and doesn’t require any grid backup or traditional dirty power sources.

No Trenching

Since the systems are self-contained, there is no trenching or underground wiring required with almost any solar lighting system. It allows the systems to be installed on a pole, reducing installation costs by not having to bring in drop down lines and trenching the ground to run costly wire. This also puts all wiring up high and out of reach of people vandalizing electrical wire for the copper.

Protecting the Planet

The sun produces enough energy every 10 seconds to meet the world’s energy needs. Therefore, tapping into this unlimited energy source is the way to the future and protecting our planet against harmful CO2 emissions produced by dirty energy producers.

Environmentally Friendly

The power is provided by the sun. What else can be better than that? The solar panels charge the battery assembly during the day and the controller switches to power the light from that reserve at night. In the morning, the process repeats itself.

Energy Indpendence

Since each system does not rely on the grid power, you are in complete control of your solar powered light. If you require the light to operate only certain times, our range of control options will allow you to program exactly what you require. And if the power goes down around you, your light will still shine on, never relying on anything else but the sun.

Easy Installation

There is literally nothing to installing a commercial solar powered light. Set the pole with the specific foundation requirements and put the solar power assembly, fixture and fixture mounting bracket on the top of the pole. We here at SEPCO provide a complete installation guide with every system and are available to assist with any hiccups you come across during your installation process.

Tax Credits

Did you know there is a Federal Tax Credit of 30% available to all commercial customers? There is also state and local tax benefits available for commercial and residential customers. For more information, check out DSIRE’s website.
