A large industrial facility had a serious problem on their hands. In short, an employee was hit by a car one night after walking down a set of stairs and across a poorly lit crosswalk. Immediately following the accident, the facility managers knew they had to install a light to illuminate the stairs and crosswalk ASAP!
The challenge was the tremendous amount of time/expense required to bring AC power to this remote section of the facility. A high performance SEPCO solar power flood lighting system turned out to be the perfect solution!
Installed at the top of the stairs, the power flood light (http://www.sepco-solarlighting.com/projects/solar-security-lighting/) fixture-equipped with a 39 Watt super metal halide lamp-does an excellent job illuminating the stairs and the cross walk from dusk to dawn thereby ensuring the safety of all employees who use this area of the facility throughout the night. Better yet, the solar lighting system was purchased for a fraction of what it would have cost just to run AC power to this remote area of the facility and installed the same day it was delivered!
Due to the overall success of the project, SEPCO is working with the Facility Manager to illuminate other areas of the property with high quality commercial lighting powered completely by clean, renewable solar energy.
