Case Study

Gene Green Beltway 8 Park

Gene Green Beltway 8 Park (Houston, TX)

Simple, Resilient Solar Lighting

Gene Green Park is a 250-acre park in a leafy suburb of Houston, Texas. Prior to installing solar lights from First Light Technologies, the park was a ‘daytime’ only park. First Light’s IPL Series Self-Contained Solar Luminaires were chosen for this project due to their rugged construction, reliable performance and low cost to install. Spark Electric installed 154 lights over a two week period without any trenching or site reclamation, and Harris County is thrilled about the performance and the cost.

First Light Solar Luminaires are simple to install, taking only 15 minutes per fixture. They are built to last, and saved Harris County over $250,000 versus trenching and wiring. When Hurricane Harvey hit and this park was literally underwater, the lights still shone bright. It’s a pleasure working with First Light.

A few words from our clients…

“We will be looking at other areas to utilize the bollards. The community loves the ambiance of the softly lit pathways. So I foresee more of these being installed in the near future. Thanks again for all of your help! You have provided excellent customer service and that means as much as the production of a fantastic product.”

“We chose the PLB series bollard because of the high quality construction, lighting performance and ease of installation. An added benefit was the responsive customer service from the First Light team. We plan on using more First Light products in the future on existing running trails.”

Project Manager

“Everyone wants a high quality product at a fair price. The First Light Technologies team provided that. They were quick to respond and a pleasure to work with making the process of specifying lighting for our multi-use pathway project a breeze. We chose solar LED pathway lights for our project because of their brightness, efficiency, ease of installation (no utility trenching required), low operating costs, long term durability, and aesthetic appeal (without a giant solar array tacked onto the top). I recommend First Light Technologies to anyone looking for a great solution to their outdoor pathway lighting needs.”
