One of our engineers working in Satellite Beach

A couple of weeks ago, I was doing some reading about off-grid lighting.  Research shows that there is an enormous amount of money that is spent on fuel-based lighting systems by rural and urban regions that are not connected to electricity grids. Naturally after reading this, I was thrilled to hear that our engineers had developed The PROLIFIC DC Series.  The PROLIFIC DC Series eliminates the need to power street lights from the electrical grid. They are instead powered by low voltage direct current electricity produced by solar and wind energy sources. “With the PROLIFIC DC series, countries around the world now have the freedom to install virtually anywhere environmentally friendly, affordable and energy efficient street lights that have better lighting quality than traditional HID lights,” our CEO Zach said.

The PROLIFIC DC series street lights aren’t just in development, they will soon light up Mexico City’s newly constructed “Viaducto Bicentenario” (roughly translated “Bicentennial Bridge”), which runs 23 kilometers (about 14.5 miles) from Lomas Verdes to Tepotzotlan.  The Viaducto Bicentenario, which is being built in celebration of Mexico’s bicentennial taking place on September 16th, will be a gleaming example of the most efficient roadway lighting technology in the world. Joe Gerstl, CEO of Gerstl Consultores, S.A. de C.V. invited BHP Energy Mexico S. de R.L. de C.V., Mexico’s leading expert in LED lighting technologies to help guide their selection of LED street lights for the project.  “This is the first elevated superhighway in Mexico that will be illuminated entirely by solar-powered LED streetlights, and our customer required the most efficient and reliable illumination system available to complement the advanced nature of its solar power system,” said Alan Barson, CEO of BHP Energy Mexico. “After extensive research and testing, we selected Lighting Science Group’s PROLIFIC DC series LED RoadWay 100 watt street light for this project,” added Barson. Zach and the rest of us here at Lighting Science would like to thank BHP Energy Mexico S. de R.L. de C.V. for introducing our PROLIFIC DC series products into Mexico.
