Colorado Cities going Sol EverGen Solar Lamps

In case you missed it: Last month, we announced the first installation of the new Sol EverGen solar light in Colorado. This installation in Aurora’s Sand Creek Park is part of a larger trend of solar technology becoming a viable, sustainable solution that challenges the status quo in outdoor municipal lighting.

Top 5 reasons municipalities and developers are installing solar lighting:

1 Grid connection prohibitively expensive and/or far away

2 Sustainability mandates and initiatives

3 Municipalization or ownership of power generation

4 Replacement of aging infrastructure

5 Cost of solar = cost of on-grid lighting

The latest technology advancements in solar commercial lighting provide an opportunity for solar to be used for a greater share of projects. Potential topics can include:

• How the new EverGen gives cities a no-compromise solar lighting solution

• How manufacturers can build a commercial solar light with warmer LEDs—better for the health of humans and animals

And it’s built to last. The proof of viability can be seen in projects like the 71 Sol park lights installed beginning in 2007 in Wray, Colorado, to light a multi-use pathway along the Republican River. Today, these lights are still operating with minimal maintenance: in 10 years, only a battery replacement has been required.
