If you want to use your own LED lights our technicians will need to review the specifications to verify which custom build solution will work for your project.
Depending on the light fixture we can design a solar lighting system to utilize your existing light fixtures.
Our technicians are available M-F 9AM – 5PM to assist you with your requirements.
We typically produce our standard solar sign lights (GenLight 4x) in one week depending on the production lead time.
We are located in Central New York. Cold weather is our expertise. All lights are designed and sized with your location in mind.
Yep! We can maximize the solar lights performance based on how long you require your light to operate during the night.
Yes, we have a custom manufacturing facility to make sure you receive the best product for your sign lighting application.
Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, as long as your lighting fixture is in good condition, we can adjust the power system to your old lights.
Yes, we can design a solar power system to use your own lighting fixture.
Yes, your system will be properly designed to your requirements.
Yes, all systems are designed based on the project location, load power and, working hours per day.
Yes, for internally sign lighting check out our GenLight Series or contact our Sales Team.
Yes, for externally sign lighting check out our EnviroLight Series or contact our Sales Team.
All custom systems are designed in accordance with the customer’s requirements.
Mostly system voltage is 12V (Safe DC Low Voltage), but in the custom projects we design it individually and it varies based on the project requirements.
All Silicon Solar Kits are Plug and Play systems. You will get an almost already built system. All you need to do is to install Solar Panel Mounting towards the sun and plug labeled connectors.
Please contact our Sales Team, they will help you to choose the best solution for your needs or redirect the project to our engineering department when a custom solution is needed.
The Off-grid solar power systems are not connected to the electrical grid. Instead, the electric energy generated by Solar Panels is used for current needs and its surplus is efficiently stored in battery packs for future use.
We can program it for you to operate in determining periods of the day when the lights are ON. We can design for you Dusk to dawn, exact hours, or any different standard working hour. If you want to have flexible working hours, we can equip your system with manually setting up working hours that can be changed anytime you want.
The size of the battery backup is individually calculated based on the power needs and scope of working hours. When designing the system for you we will point out the enclosure size needed in your case.
Every custom system is being designed individually in accordance with the customer’s needs. We will ask you about hours/days of autonomy in the process of designing your custom sign lighting system.
Every custom system is being designed individually in accordance with the customer requirements. We will ask you about this value to properly design a lighting system for you.
All lights used in the projects are high-efficient LED lights.
The standard Solar Panels Mounting that we provide is the side of the pole mounting, which is easy to self-installing. The standard Solar Panels Mounting allows being installed on the side of the sign as well if the sign has enough good construction and dimensions. We also design different Solar Mountings options in accordance with the customer’s needs.
It is always individually calculated based on the power requirements of the system.
Solar Sign Light Reference Projects
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...
The Trader Joe's at the Huntington Harbour Mall in Huntington, CA needed a new sign lighting system after a major power failure. After looking for a traditional electrical solution (finding price tags between $13,000 - $14,000), D.D. Dunlap Companies, the owner of the property, settled on a solar sign lighting system from Silicon Solar.With a total price tag (including installation) of under $ 4,500, the new solar lighting system consists of a modified EnviroLight 2X solar sign lighting system and...
A Genlight-4x custom lighting kit was used to light up the sign at the Ommegang Brewery right before Christmas. The system immediately saved the customer money by offering them an alternative to running power out to the sign from the grid. The difference in material cost of the Genlight-4x and the proposed installation of running power from the grid to the sign was already well over $1000 in favor of the Genlight. After the installation Adam continues to save approximately...
MYTHS ABOUT LED SOLAR LIGHTING
Myth: Solar Lighting is more expensive.
Reality: The initial investment in solar lighting may be higher than a traditional lighting system (though not always). But when you look at the operational costs of solar lighting vs. traditional lighting (namely the rising price of electricity), solar lighting systems are incredibly cheap. In fact, a good solar lighting kit can completely pay for itself in energy savings in a few months to a few years.
Myth: Solar Lighting is unreliable
Reality: Today’s solar panels and solar energy kits are very reliable and efficient due to significant leaps forward in modern technology. Even in locations where cloudy weather is quite common, solar power and solar lighting can still be very reliable. In fact, Germany, a nation with cloudy weather comparable to that of Seattle or Alaska, generates more than 50% of its total power from solar resources.
Myth: Harsh Weather will destroy Solar Panels.
Reality: Solar panels and solar products have been used for years (decades, really) in cold, harsh northern climates. For instance, our offices in upstate NY make use of solar lighting, solar electric power, solar pumping and solar heating technologies. Similarly, northern schools such as Harvard and Yale have operated them for years with little to no maintenance required due to inclement weather. Today’s solar technology allows us to create more reliable solar lighting systems that work in all climates, not just sunny, warm southern ones
THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR SIGN LIGHTING:
- Eliminate the costs & hassle of installing sign and flood lighting. You will never need an electrician to install or service your solar sign light and you’ll never have to trench buried wires to and from your sign light.
- LED lighting is brighter, has a longer lifespan and uses less power than comparable incandescent and halogen lighting.
- Running a solar sign light doesn’t cost you a dime! That means absolutely NO monthly electric bill! You simply won’t believe the amount of money solar sign lighting will save you.
- All of our sign lighting options are 100% solar powered! That makes them great for your budget and great for the environment at the same time.
- Never worry about remembering to turn your sign lights ON/OFF again! Using the latest in photo-eye technology, our solar sign lights turn themselves ON automatically at dusk and OFF automatically when the sun comes up in the morning.
- You’ll be doing a small part to help keep our environment clean and livable. Every time we use solar power instead of traditional power sources, we preserve natural resources, reduce CO2 emissions and keep the Earth (and our air) a little bit cleaner!
