The solar unit replaces the city’s current lighting system on 30 ft tall utility poles commonly used on residential and busy streets. Mono Crystalline solar power collects energy and converts and stores it in two sealed lead acid maintenance-
CEO Shane Chapin explained, “In a town with 50,000 lights the current monthly expense is about $215,400 based on running the lights for 10 hours per day. Switching to ISS generates average savings of about $158,400. Cost savings depend on the available sunlight and we can assess the expected savings for each community.”
ISS lights have been vigorously tested over the last year and half and additional field tests in different ambient conditions will take place during this trial period to ensure the product is an appropriate alternative.
Chapin said, “We examined the purchasing process in large scale conversions such as city street lights and are prepared to help through every step of the financial and energy assessment for cities that want take advantage of the often confusing American Recovery Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Couple that with our financing options, that are customized to not exceed your current outgoing energy expense, and you have a winning scenario."
