Sometimes a community’s effort to boost safety measures for commuters and increase green energy utilities go hand-in-hand. That’s just the case lately with a few projects under Greenshine’s belt that got media attention (something we often mention in our blog posts) for their solar pathway light installations.
Two projects, one in Montrose, CO, and another in Bakersfield, CA got attention from local news media outlets. The Greenshine installations are iconic projects that demonstrate the cost-effectiveness and awesome power of green-energy lights. The Bakersfield project, an installation that utilizes 28 Superas, used a grant from the Natural Resources Agency to fund the lights along with a new sidewalk and a bike path.
The Montrose, CO project was a 9-light installation within Rotary Park. The public works department of Montrose was impressed with solar lighting because they didn’t need trenching in order to power the lighting. Plus, the wire-free, autonomous systems allowed for easier placement along paths.
The public works department of Montrose is so impressed with the project that they plan on another 9-light project in the near future.
If you’d like to read more about the Greenshine projects and how well they fared, please read up on the Montrose, CO project or the Bakersfield, CA project on their respective news media sites to learn about the solar pathway light installations. We have also placed the Kentucky installation below for your viewing enjoyment.
