Using Sunlight To Light Up the Night Installing exterior security lighting can be an expensive proposition
because of the need to bring underground power to remote, pole-mounted
fixtures. Additionally, facility owners can face expensive maintenance
bills, should buried power lines fail – as well as the need to provide
backup power, should those lights be critical to facility operations.
Advances in two technologies – photovoltaic (PV) solar panels and LED
lighting – now are helping to reduce such costs and bring new lighting
options to otherwise inaccessible locations.
