A new community near Murrieta, California recently opened phase 1 of a new neighborhood park. The seven acre park included two areas for dogs, a gazebo picnic shelter and a parking lot.
Light Needed Over Wide Area
To increase the usability of the park and to enhance safety after dark, the park needed a lighting solution. While there was some electrical connection to the site of the park, the wide area that needed lighting in the park meant a lot of trenching to connect to electrical wires would be needed.
Why First Light
The developer of the site chose 26 of First Light’s SCL2 series luminaires to provide light for the park. The reasons included a much easier install and no requirement for trenching for wires. The SCL2 is also able to provide a high level of light over a wide area and have a variety of lighting profiles, including motion sensor options, that can be configured with our iOS app.
Installed in 2017, the luminaires were installed on decorative poles, which look great and the customer reports they are very happy with the results:
“The developer, Argent Management, wanted solar lights because they are affordable, resilient, and the sustainable choice. I prefer to install lights from First Light Technologies because they are simply the best solar lights available today. The SCL2 Solar Luminaire was chosen because it has the highest light output in a self-contained fixture. Outdoor lighting with the SCL2 is simple to design, install and maintain and the lights provide all night, every night performance.”
