We all know that to heal our planet we must find ways to save the earth’s resources and use alternative sources of energy that lessen our impact upon the environment. How often have we heard the words “green”, “eco-friendly”, “low-energy” or similar phrases used to describe a product? In the face of so much conflicting information and so many claims, how can we be sure that the products we choose are really good for the environment? One of the most reliable ways to help the environment is to use products that support the use of renewable resources. The sun is the most renewable resource on earth.
Environmentally-friendly policies are emerging every day and affecting the construction industry. Not only are governments putting increasing pressure on the building professionals to choose “green” building materials, but it has also become clear that the protection of the earth is everyone’s responsibility. Furthermore, the rising cost of energy is making alternative power sources more attractive.
A new lighting product in the architectural industry is the solar-powered LED ground lights. LED lights are a vast improvement over the traditional lights. It would take 48 trees and over 20 years to compensate for the pollution produced by 30 traditional lights. There is no pollution with solar powered lights- the energy source is the sun. Solar-powered LED lights are a more up-to-date environmentally-friendly building material. They are easy to install, requiring no special wiring or electricity. Since they are solar-powered, they emit no harmful Co2 to the atmosphere.
Lastly, it should be noted that this product is easy to incorporate into any existing project plans and will help meet the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) requirements and goals.
Meteor Solar LED paver and ground lights are currently being distributed in the US.
