A year ago Edwin Love, owner of Alternative Lighting and Power, installed their first U.S. based Solar Tree at the Performing Arts Centre in Stafford, TX. This urban luminaire stands 17' tall and is solar powered. It has provided more than 4,300 hours of lighting and security at the center at NO OPERATING COST to the city of Stafford. Because it uses LED lighting technology and solar power, there is no light pollution like that of High Pressure Sodium and Mercury lighting, like most all currently installed street and parking lot lighting. And its carbon displacement is the equivalent of saving 49 trees per year, which aids in cleaner air.


How it works: Its solar panels, which are nestled in a frame at the top of the tree, collects sun power during the day, stores that energy in batteries located in the base and provides secure lighting every night. An added feature of the tree is the ability to charge phones and tablets using the 4 USB charging ports on the tree. Even through Hurricane Harvey the Solar Tree Performed without fail. The tree is designed to operate on one full charge for 3 days.

The Solar Tree has other upgradable features such as being able to remotely change the color of the lights, provide WIFI and can be custom colored to compliment any color scheme. Thanks to local partnerships in logistics and materials, Alternative Lighting and Power has successfully made the tree more affordable, cutting the cost by nearly a third of the original cost. Alternative Lighting and Power also has a line of affordable solar powered generators.
