Innovative Solar Powered LED Street Lights to Usher in a New Era
January 14, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Green Choice LED today announced it has been selected to complete the solar powered LED street light project for the City of Shenandoah, TX. The project consists of designing, manufacturing, and installation of 81 solar powered LED street lights for the city's Shenandoah Valley subdivision. The Shenandoah City Council voted to go with solar powered LEDs over traditional street lights after researching the idea.
LEDs have extremely long lives and do not contain toxic materials like traditional street lights. Additionally, Green Choice LED has a patented lens design that allows for fewer lights to project normal standard lighting levels. According to Green Choice LED CEO Jeremy Sampson, "The operating cost for a solar street light is zero and the maintenance cost is minimum, which only consist of changing the battery every 10 years." Jeremy goes on to add, "This is one of the first projects of this kind, an entire city's neighborhood will be powered by solar powered LED streetlights."
The US Department of Energy has taken measures to phase out the production of toxic incandescent light bulbs in favor of more energy efficient alternatives, such as LEDs. This phase out will be completed by 2016 and is part of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. As a result, many businesses and organizations are taking a proactive approach and planning accordingly for their future lighting solutions.
Green Choice LED has 120 days to complete the project, but according to CEO Jeremy Sampson, he estimates the project will finish ahead of schedule and within 90 days.
