City of Princeton Installs Smart Solar Street Lights to Promote Sustainability | Company


Off-grid streetlights now illuminate Princeton City Park

PRINCETON, Texas, Oct. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The City of Princeton, Texas has installed thirty-seven Off Grid Smart Solar Street Lights in Princeton City Park surrounding the Civic Center. In order to improve energy resilience and promote sustainable alternatives, the city has taken steps to improve its local infrastructure.

Solar-powered LED street lights, produced by a Houston-based manufacturer EnGoPlanet, are designed to require no wiring and are lit using energy produced entirely by solar panels. This redistributes the energy that would normally be taken from the local electricity network to maintain public lighting.

As well as being a more sustainable alternative to traditional street lighting, the lights also minimize infrastructure disruption, demonstrating how the transition to sustainable alternatives can be easier than many anticipate. EnGoPlanet’s solar street lights are also designed with resilience in mind, taking into account extreme weather conditions and thus eliminating the risk of darkness in these circumstances. This leaves room for smart infrastructure that can operate independently of power grids, weather conditions, etc. while being more durable in the long run.

The City park contains other sustainable features such as electric vehicle charging stations, which are the first steps the City of Princeton is taking to create a more sustainable and smart infrastructure.

“Energy conservation and sustainability is the way of the future, the City of Princeton is proud to be able to implement these types of energy alternatives,” said Derek Borg, City Manager for the City of Princeton.
