Solar Lighting Solutions for Government Facilities

Solar-powered lighting is the optimal choice for military applications and federal facilities. This is due to the stringent energy, security, and safety requirements that the military demands. There is no margin for error or disruption when protecting your nation and citizens. Inadequacy is not acceptable. 


Benefit from True Durability


For your military and other federal facilities, reliability cannot be sacrificed. That’s why solar lighting is the best solution on the market – the durability and reliability are unmatched.


That’s because solar-powered lighting is immune to frustrating blackouts and brownouts that are prone to occur in urban and residential areas. In the event of a storm, random blackout or security breach, the light over your head shouldn’t be a focus of concern. With solar-powered lighting from Sol, you won’t have to worry about losing power ever again.


If you’re relying on the grid for electric lighting, your facilities are at the mercy of the aging power grid, liable to malfunction or underdeliver at any given time. For every dollar you sink into the grid, you’re risking public safety and security. Eliminate the risk and upgrade to solar.


Control Entire Systems from One Spot


As is often the case with military and other federal facilities, accessibility is not a primary concern. This can sometimes make activities like general maintenance more challenging. That’s where solar can help.


By choosing solar power over inferior electric lighting, you’ll retain the ability to remotely control each fixture from miles away. From one central hub, you’ll be able to assess and analyze lighting across multiple locations. Even better, Sol outdoor lighting will update you on exactly what needs to be fixed and when. Each individual fixture can communicate with your central command hub autonomously.


Why do Federal Facilities & Military go solar?

Choosing solar-powered lighting for military applications and federal facilities is wise—the military demands only the highest energy, security, and safety standards.

We must strive for excellence in protecting our nation and citizens, leaving no room for mistakes or disruptions.

Works even when the grid is down

Electric street lights can be a source of frustration for military and federal facilities, as utility companies can take weeks or even months to deliver and repair them. By switching to solar-powered lights, military and federal facilities can achieve true resilience. Even during natural disasters, solar lights can continue to function, providing a reliable source of safety and security for the community.

Complete layout flexibility

Solar lighting solutions offer complete layout flexibility, making them an ideal choice for military and federal facilities looking for lighting solutions that can be customized to their specific needs. Unlike traditional lighting infrastructure, solar lighting solutions do not require a complex network of cables and power sources, allowing them to be installed virtually anywhere.

Zero carbon emissions

Military and federal facilities are under increasing pressure to reduce their carbon footprint and adopt sustainable practices. Solar lighting solutions offer a zero-carbon emissions option, making them an ideal choice for military and federal facilities looking to reduce their environmental impact.

Reduced infrastructure costs

Your military or federal facility could save a small fortune by switching from tradition, grid-connected lighting to solar lighting. Solar lighting is easily the more cost effective option. Installation costs are minimal, as nothing needs to be dug or trenched. No monthly electricity costs!
