The theme of the presentation, "Grid Parity Now" clearly indicates that solar powered lighting is economically preferable over conventionally powered lighting in new installations. Schuett's address will take place today at 2:15 pm - Session A5, at the Hynes Convention Center in Boson, MA.

Rick Schuett's presentation will also highlight why solar-powered outdoor lighting is one of, if not THE best, investments available for renewable infrastructure projects across public and private enterprises as well as prove that solar-powered outdoor lighting is LOWER in cost than conventional or grid-tied exterior lighting.
