Nobody wants to be caught out in the dark. When an area is well lit, people feel a sense of safety when meeting up with friends, taking the dog for a walk, or just walking back to their car. That’s why general area lighting is so important in public places like parking lots, college campuses, parks, government facilities, and everywhere in between.
But why would a government or business choose to invest in solar lighting?
Municipalities, businesses and universities from coast to coast are switching to solar for their outdoor area lighting. And they’re saving big. But they aren’t just saving money today – they’re saving well into the future. That’s because solar lighting is cheaper to install, operate and maintain.
SOL outdoor lights are extremely efficient, which means just 3 fixtures can do the work of 8 electric fixtures. Less equipment, less installation time, and less cost. And when it comes time for installation, solar-powered lighting is a breeze. The plug-and-play setup takes less than an hour, and doesn’t require an electrician, heavy machinery, or trenches in the ground.
With SOL outdoor lighting, it could be 10 years before you have to worry about any maintenance. Solar is extremely durable, and does not require scheduled maintenance. Plus, with a 10-year warranty on the fixture and battery, you’ll have nothing to worry about any time soon.
Every day, more and more municipalities, businesses, the US federal government, and other organizations are waking up to the fact that the electric power grid is an aging relic of the past. While the grid still plays an important role for much of society, it is deteriorating. Every new dollar invested in the grid is a dollar wasted. To free themselves from the grid and the utility companies, organizations are going solar whenever possible.
The pricey and disruptive installation of new lights is one thing. But the soaring costs of being connected to an increasingly unreliable and aging power grid is another. You don’t know when the next power outage will come, but when it does, people will be left in the dark. To cut out the middleman and become truly self-reliant, make the switch to solar-powered lighting.
