Portable Solar Lighting Systems

The Versatility of Greenshine’s Portable Solar Lighting Systems


Portable Solar Lighting Systems

Lighting often times seems simple enough; put lights on a pole, connect them to power, and voila! Your area is sufficiently lit for whatever you need. It turns out there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to lighting. When you walk through a park or down a paved walkway and lights adorn each side, we invite you to take a moment and look at how they’re constructed. What kind of fixture is at the top of the pole? How is the light pieced together? Is there a battery block at the base? Is the light pole sturdy and cemented into a foundation (we hope it is)? These are just aspects of lights we don’t even mull over in our day-to-day lives, but as it turns out a lot of thoughtful care and planning has been put into something as simple as a bulb at the top of a pole. Thoughtful planning, meticulous construction, safety measures, power connectivity, controls, placement–we at Greenshine are familiar with it all. But thankfully enough, we’ve actually designed systems to skip a lot of the grunt work that it takes to establish a lighting system. Let us take a moment to express why solar powered portable lights are superior in many ways over traditional lighting systems.

Security from a Portable Solar Lighting System

We start with what’s most important. Lighting brings about security, but sometimes it’s a matter of what kind of light which really matters most. If you hang a 60W tungsten bulb connected to a flimsy wire on top of a ladder, you won’t be lighting up much except for a security guard’s face when they laugh. You need “oomph.” It’s also important (depending on the job) to combine “oomph” with portability. Need specifics? Check out when the city of Lake Elsinore used solar powered portable lights to illuminate their construction projects as well as their parking lot. But why does that matter? Well, the city saw a decrease in crime due to the boost in security. Plus, the lights served multiple purposes–some were moved around their construction site so their shifts could run 24/7.

What’s important is illustrating the dual aspect of these portable solar lighting systems. They’re incredibly versatile since they can be relocated to virtually any location in order to get proper lighting. Their light is powerful enough that it deters crime and increases security. Imagine having a grounded, immovable light system just off from where you need it most–with that in mind, it’s easy to illustrate these kinds of solar powered portable lights are superior to older technology. They’re perfect for the needs of businesses that need light in their parking and construction lots.

More Than Just Security, but Peace of Mind

We’re sure there are parks somewhere in “the wild” without sufficient lighting, and so it’s often advised not to travel them at night for fear of the unknown. It might be the case that whomever is project manager for the park hasn’t been able to afford trenching to bring electricity to the area, and so perhaps the park doesn’t operate at night–or it does, just with unsafe conditions! Trenching the area, installing traditional lights, connecting them to power, maintaining them, and footing the energy bill is costly and time-consuming. What to do if there isn’t enough lighting and not enough money to bring to the area? Turn to solar.

Once again, Greenshine stands by their products as not only “light” on the wallet and great for the environment, but as crime-fighting lights that give peace of mind to friends and family. Rest assured that if there are family members in a public area, our portable solar lighting systems are there to provide security so that parks and playgrounds are enjoyed ‘round the clock–or at least until it’s time to come in for dinner. Plus, the best thing is you can move the portable lights where you need them!

Portability for a Business–One of the Biggest Needs

We know the challenges that project managers and experts face all the time when it comes to something as simple as lights. In the past, we’ve helped out military convoys that needed light to cross a dangerous bridge. We’ve assisted logistics companies in their efforts to get equipment from A to B. We even accelerated one retail store’s timeline for opening up shop by installing our systems. The reason for our success lies in the portability factor for our light systems.

Our portable solar light towers are actually easier to move than you might think–some need a forklift to move around, and others can be moved easily with two people! There isn’t a need to rent very heavy equipment just to move the lights to a different location. That versatility alone is often what people enjoy the most about Greenshine projects. Imagine digging up a connected light, disconnecting it from power, digging again to plant the pole, reconnecting the power–it just isn’t practical or cheap! That’s why we develop our portable solar lighting systems. Convenience, price, portability, security, and great for the environment when compared to coal or fossil fuels.

As we’ve said before, there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to lighting. The next time you’re outside and under public lights, think about what it really takes for those lights to get there. And if the lights you find are solar powered portable lights, rejoice in that moment you’ve found a modern technological feat. Solar lights are the unspoken marvels of today’s lighting sources.

Greenshine is starting a revolution in power with a primary focus on what the sun brings us every day. For those out there that can’t afford to trench for electricity, take a look at our products. For the project managers that wince at monthly energy bills, consider what we’ve got in store for solar lighting. For the teams that need to move a light just 15 feet and can’t practically do so, we’ve got you covered. Join us in our revolution of power, portability, light, and convenience. Take a look at our products and contact us if you’d like to learn more. Your lighting needs are met; we just need you to give us the “all clear.”


Parking Lot Retrofit Project in Tarzana

This is a retrofit project that was performed in Tarzana, CA. The customer was greatly troubled by their existing lights which were consuming huge quantites of electricity while not providing sufficient light for their needs. They had to spend a lot on regular maintenance as well. Their bills were surmounting and thus a newer solar lighting system was needed, so they turned to Greenshine New Energy for their new solution. With our accurate calculation and simulation, unique design, and strictly-controlled manufacturing, they were able to fully solve all their pain points in a short period of time.

Our All-in-One Series solar lights successfully replaced the old fixtures and kept the existing poles. We were able to help the customer resolve the problems of dim light and waste of energy while largely reducing installation and maintenance costs. That’s largely what we’re known for in the solar lot lighting business–saving businesses money while going green. We’re happy to make others happy, lighting the way towards a brighter, cheaper, cleaner future. Feel free to check out other projects that Greenshine has completed, or read our blog which we update frequently. You’ll be a solar lighting expert in no time at all once you learn a lot of the secrets behind the ways we operate.


Greenshine New Energy can provide engineering work for your specific project. Based on your brightness requirements and our own calculations, we can help you in designing the location and orientation of the solar light poles in order to achieve the best performances. Not only that, but we can ensure your energy bills are reduced so that you can focus your finances on more important things–like running your business. That’s just our nature here at Greenshine–helping people run their business while saving them money.


Solar Parking Lot Lighting Project in Grand Junction

This project was located at a Subaru dealership in Grand Junction, Colorado. For this particular project, our client was experiencing high electricity bills using High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) lights on his lot which are known to be very expensive. The owner of the lot wanted to make the switch to solar lighting not only to save money, but to help with the ongoing “green” movement in the city of Grand Junction. We first talked about retrofitting the existing poles, but were later advised that installing new poles was the best solution according to our client. 


We provided him with a mock 3D simulation and thermal rendering with our 80 watt LED system that we decided would fit best in his lot for the budget that he provided us with. Greenshine was able to amply light his lot with 9 solar lights due to proper planning and light location. The solar lights have also caught the attention of the city and have cause quite a bit of excitement around town. It seems like turning to solar is not only beneficial but popular among newer generations!


Greenshine New Energy can provide engineering work for your specific project. Based on your brightness requirements and our own calculations, we can help you in designing the location and orientation of the solar light poles in order to achieve the best performances. We’re in the solar business not only because it’s great for the environment, but because it makes people smile too. Perhaps that brings a new meaning to Greenshine–smiling faces, shining over a fantastic method of using the power of the sun.
