SolarMax LED brings parking lot lighting
to a whole new level
The City of El Monte has 14 parks throughout the city. The city is paying high cost of electricity for old HID lightings in the parks but the existing lightings raise security concerns due to lack of sufficient lightings. SolarMax was invited to assess the lighting condition at Tony Arceo Memorial Park and proposed a system that can save energy usage and reduce lighting maintenance as a first pilot project for a citywide lighting replacement program.
SolarMax designed a photometric lighting in compliance with CA-Title 24, equipped with occupancy dimming sensor integration and delivered dramatically improved lighting conditions. This lighting conversion project saved the City 60% of energy usage and minimized the light maintenance. Residents feel much safer in the park. The new lighting has helped deter suspicious activities at night and offered better visibility for patrols and law enforcement in the area.
