Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for friends, family, health, happiness, and the planet, too! In addition to checking out Ember LED's blog posts on the sustainable solar technology, read on to learn how you can be green this Thanksgiving!
As we look to more environmentally sustainable ways to travel, such as electric cars and the Hyperloop, solar LED lighting options are becoming an attractive possibility for railway and transit stations. And because trains often run in remote locations that can be challenging to light, Ember LED's eSHINE solar LED and vSHINE LED series can be ideal for such applications. Our fixtures are powerful, weather resistant and maintenance free, offering the best performance in all railroad locations including stations, switches, warehouses, and more. Read on to learn about where solar panels can be placed on railroad and train sites.
2. The application is off-grid.
The bulk of lighting installation costs comes from the digging, trenching and wiring that must occur to wire electric to a new site. When you install solar lighting, all of those costs are eliminated. Instead of paying thousands of dollars to contractors and electrical engineers with the hopes of wiring electric to your site, go the solar route. Instead of jumping through hoops and wires, off-grid solar lighting can be easily installed in a matter of hours. For example, Ember LED's eSHINE series comes with eSHINE poles: our all inclusive battery and solar lighting system that comes at 6ft., 10 ft., 15 ft., 20 ft., 25 ft. and 30 ft. levels.
3. Your business is suffering from high energy bills.
You've heard it before: Solar lighting will save you money on the long-term. Not only will solar lighting make your business more attractive to buyers, tax incentives are available statewide to those who choose to "go green" and light their business using solar powered energy. Not to mention, any energy that you do not use for your business that is connected to the grid is given back to the city, which places extra money directly in your pocket. Isn't that awesome?
4. Because green is the new black.
Solar lighting is green, renewable AND cool. As climate change continues to dominate the news and people are looking for more ways to be sustainable, lighting agents and businesses that jump on the socially responsible bandwagon are likely to receive positive feedback from their customers, clients and employees.
