Illumient Smart Off-Grid lighting has replaced grid lighting on the top level of a 1,400 space parking garage in Hicksville, New York, for the Town of Oyster Bay.
In total, 20 Illumient lighting systems were installed on the roof during a refurbishment of the parking garage, replacing lights that were connected to the grid. Replacing the old conduit wiring for the grid-connected lights would have required drilling through the cement structure of the parking garage. Not only is this costly, but it could have compromised the structural integrity of the garage. Installing Clear Blue’s wirelessly-powered and remotely managed lighting systems eliminated this requirement to replace the wiring, while not compromising on durability, reliability or aesthetics.
Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino stated, “The Town of Oyster Bay has become a local leader in renewable energy initiatives. The use of solar panels on the Hicksville Commuter Parking Garage will allow taxpayers to save money annually while properly lighting this facility with the latest technology on the market. From solar panels on the garage to the use of LED streetlights and same-day solar permits for homeowners, Oyster Bay is paving the way for a brighter future.”
