Why Does Lighting Hit the Wallet So Hard?
There are a number of factors, some of which we’ve been able to eliminate. A lot of money is often required to trench into the ground to bury wires and connect to main electrical grids in order to power lighting fixtures. We’ve seen price tags as low as 4 dollars a foot and as high as twelve. Extra costs tack on sometimes since trenching might even need street or parking lot concrete broken up in order to bury wires. Plus, some public areas may need to be blocked off, creating unsightly areas for customers. The total cost of trenching is pretty high. Couple that with an energy bill from using inefficient lighting and you can easily see why footing the bill for a new lighting system can have outrageous costs. That’s why Greenshine New Energy is in the business of saving you money with solar street lighting.
What’s in it for Me with Solar?
Solar power doesn’t just reduce bills, it removes some of them entirely. That 20-thousand-dollar add-on for the bill just to trench? Gone with solar. Lights needn’t be connected to any main power grid, so rest assured that the savings are up front. A favorite story of ours is when we saved a company over half a million dollars just by providing a solar solution. We’re sure they were happy about saving more money. It’s one of the reasons why we’re in the solar business; reducing bills and increasing smiles. That’s specifically why so many businesses, municipalities, cities, and even government entities are getting off the grid.
What Are the Pitfalls?
We won’t hide facts. Solar energy is directly dependent on the sun, so on an overcast day with a blanket of clouds the panels won’t pull as much power. However, we’ve tested several technologies and know that mono-crystalline solar panels are some of the most efficient panels on the market. The technology continues to grow every day, so the energy pulled from the sun will be significant. Even on an overcast day, there’s light to pull. Street lighting powered by solar panels will last a week on average. The darkest of days still provide energy to fuel LED lights, so rest assured that your stored energy will last you awhile.
