A welcoming environment and the perception of safety are crucial factors in the success of any park or public site. Lighting up parks and communities is one way to make visitors feel safe and welcome, but it can be challenging to find the right solution. Traditional AC lights have been the go-to solution, but these projects can become complex, with costly infrastructure requirements and high ongoing energy bills.
In recent years, new avenues have opened up to help communities light up their parks without the budget and site challenges associated with traditional methods. Commercial solar lighting has made significant strides in recent years due to evolving technologies and reductions in production costs for LEDs and solar panels.
You can expand the use of your parks and sites with simple lighting solutions that will improve aesthetics and safety, achieve a significant cost saving while providing a more sustainable solution for your community. This presentation will:
- Discuss the challenges parks face with patron safety and evening usage.
- Review advancements and break down perceived challenges in solar lighting.
- Demonstrate the latest in solar lighting technology.
- Provide guidance in selecting solar lighting for parks and other community sites.
