This is an amazing time to be alive. The technology is progressing so quickly and diversifying that sometimes we can’t even keep up. A vital aspect of the ever changing world of technology is the focus on mobility. We are rejecting the tethers which bind us to single locations and embracing the portable and self-sufficient devices.
The solar parking lot lights offered by the Greenshine are powered by the Sun, but without a way to store that precious energy, the solar power would be useless during the night. That is why batteries are such an integral part of our business, as well as many other businesses worldwide that rely on battery power. Still, we usually take them for granted. ‘Batteries not included’ said packages of our toys. No big deal, we just went out and bought some. It’d never occurred to us where they came from.
There have been great strides in the development of the LED technology over the years. They have become more durable, cheaper to produce and much more versatile. Conversely, the older types of lighting, namely the incandescent lights have pretty much reached their zenith years ago and could not be perfected any further.
So, what happens when you combine the fledgling technology of solar lighting with the efficiency of the LED type of lighting? You get amazing results and revolutionary results in both conservation of energy and cutting the costs of maintenance. Take the example of solar LED parking lot lights that are cropping up all through the USA. The solar collectors store energy in the batteries which is then used to power the LEDs during the night. All without being attached to the central electricity grid. This is possible due to the clear advantages of the LEDs over the other types of lighting.
To be honest, the technology is improving drastically every year. It may not have been possible to do large-scale project before as we can do now. However, we are at the point when it is not only possible, but financially and ecologically viable to do. Below are just some of the examples of solar lighting.
Solar energy is pretty cool. The Sun sends a vast amount of energy daily, and we’re wasting it. It is only relatively lately that we have decided to harvest this inexhaustible source of energy, through solar panels.
These neat little devices have a multitude of uses, from miniature home power plants to heating devices to more industrial uses, such as solar water pumping and solar street lighting. It is the last use that will be further discussed here.

To make sure pathway lighting is adequate, here the steps to go through before the installation. Continue reading “Before You Install Pathway Lighting”
Installing solar parking lights is much easier than you think. Here you’ll find an outline of the whole process of preparation for it.
How big is the area that needs lighting?
Parking lots come in many sizes – from small residential ones to huge lots serving supermarkets, malls and office complexes. The size of the area and the present obstacles affect the number and position of solar lights. It’s best to have blueprints of the area or ground and aerial shots to be able to make the most informed decision on how many lights would the parking lot benefit from and what the best places for positioning are.
