Sidney NY Town Sign GenLight System

Sidney NY Town Sign GenLight System

Project Overview

The town of Sidney, NY is the birthplace of Silicon Solar. Therefore, Silicon Solar founders Adam Farrell and Matt Farrell have donated a third generation GenLight 108LED solar sign light to the town for their town entrance sign. The entrance sign previously had a traditional electric lighting system installed, which costs the town roughly $217.56 a year in electric use charges. Now with the new GenLight 108 LED on their entrance sign they will save $2175.60 in electric costs (this is a net return of $1456.63 after the cost of the GenLight).

Silicon Solar CEO Adam Farrell, says, “Silicon Solar is proud to have helped the Town of Sidney build towards a sustainable future by installing the GenLight 108. Just by running some quick numbers, the town is expected to earn back what they spent on this installation in 3 years. They save the tax payers another rough 1300.00 in 10 years for one sign, one sign! If a town chooses to use standard electrical lighting when there are more economical and eco-friendly options out there, they are a severe disservice to their residents. Politics aside, it is nice to see elected leaders embracing green technology to save taxpayers money in today’s tight economy”.
