Location : University of New Mexico | Albuquerque, New Mexico
The mains power grid in this location was damaged beyond repair and the University needed to retain outdoor lighting in the area in an effort to deter illegal camping in the area and reports of drug use at the location. Without access to mains power the quickest solution that could be deployed was solar. The underground cabling that had failed can now be retired or removed as the newly installed solar light does not connect to the power grid eliminating supply charges.
The solution was one we have suggested many times in the past. Simply abandon the unreliable power connection and install a solar powered option. This will not require the power to be repaired or replaced and will avoid numerous costs in the process. The University has reported a decline in the rate of anti-social and drug related problems at the location commenting that the “New solar light helps light up the druggies and most don’t return to this area to get high and pass out.”
