This continues the report from 5/16/07 about the installation of a set of solar panels for path lighting.
An inpendant lighting contractor from NIGHTSCAPING, a landscaping lighting design company, met with Director Tomiaki Tamura, utilities manager Scott Riley and site electrician Dr. Sparks, to discuss a new system of path lighting. After selection, the new lighting fixtures were bought from a Phoenix distributor, SPRINKLER WORLD OF ARIZONA.
This new set of lights will be powered by a bank of 160 Watt solar panels that were donated by PTL [Photovoltaic Testing Laboratory], which is a part of Arizona State University.
We will report more on path lighting at installation of fixtures.
