Pathway lighting solution for Forest Falls, CA – Solar-powered lights

By August 3, 2015 172 Views 1 comment

Pathway lighting involves many different aspects of lighting. IESNA does not provide any clear recommendation as to the level of illumination these paths should receive, but the RPS-8 lighting recommendations for these application gives an average recommended illumination of 0.5 fc on the paths. Lighting-up pathways can be an important factor for security, especially in remote areas where the ground might not be leveled.

Many different products can be found to achieve these levels of illumination, such as Solar pathway light options for an efficient and powerful light for pathways, sidewalks, or Solar lamp post options to provide low but efficient lighting on pathways, but also some smaller system such as LED bollard lights for a very low profile and aesthetically pleasing sight of the pathway.

This project located in Forest Falls in California is using a solar light equipped with an 8W LED bulb mounted on a bell-shape fixture housing on a15’ pole, that provides an efficient lighting for the 15’ wide pathway that cross several highly dense trees areas. Despite the presence of trees in the area, the solar panel and batteries are properly configured to provide enough back-up for the system to work as expected during inclement weather in winter-time.

Solar lights are a very efficient way to light-up pathways in remote areas, where trenching and wiring grid-tie lights would be cost-prohibitive, and provide the necessary security to pedestrians at night.
