Today's Energy Choice
In homes all around the world, a new power source is appearing on rooftops. Enlightened governments, businesses and private homeowners are embracing the environmental, social and personal benefits of investing in solar electricity.
In Europe and Japan, tens of thousands of rooftop PV (Photovoltaic) generators are being installed each year to convert sunlight into electricity. In the U.S., the national Million Solar Roofs initiative will substantially boost the number of rooftop PV systems to one million, eliminating over three billion tons of pollutants annually, while strengthening the emerging US solar industry and creating tens of thousands of new jobs for Americans.
You can participate in the creation of this new energy future with the Solar Energizer - state of the art PV systems and arrays designed for easy installation and architectural compatibility on a broad range of roofs.
Solar Energizer systems make solar energy more affordable and more practical than ever before. Solar Energizers are manufactured by Solarex, a business unit of BP Amoco Group, the global energy company involved in exploration, production and manufacturing of oil, natural gas, petrochemicals, and solar energy.
Current Tips: LED Parking Lot Lighting Offers Many Benefits
LED technology is expanding into a variety of applications. Using LED lights over conventional sources to light parking lots offers many benefits.
Efficiency Because of the directional nature of LED lighting, the fixture emits nearly 100% of its light. And it delivers more lumens per watt. Plus it starts immediately and uses less energy.
Life LED lamps offer lifetimes in excess of 100,000 hours, over five times the life of older lamps.
Durability Solid-state LED technology is less fragile and susceptible to vibration and damage than conventional lamps.
Maintenance The increased life and superior durability of LED lamps significantly reduce maintenance costs.
Uniformity The directional nature of LED lights provides enhanced control of light distribution and uniformity, and little light pollution.
Control LEDs are easily dimmed or turned on or off for perimeter daylighting, or by internal motion sensors, resulting in even more savings.
Cost LEDs cost more to install than conventional lamps. But their lower energy costs, longer life, and rebates and incentives help offset installation cost. Many parking lot operations report paybacks in less than three years.
Call us for details on improving your parking lot with lighting up to 90% of natural daylight, excellent color control, improved security, and enhanced facility value.
