Green Spider parking lot lighting system
A new energy-efficient lighting system called The Green Spider will soon become common in parking lots, says Green Spider Energy. The company says that by controlling a parking lot’s lighting during off-peak hours, the product reduces lighting energy consumption and costs by about 30%, extends the life of existing lighting, and pays for itself in as little as four months.
The Green Spider is designed to work in conjunction with existing parking lot lighting controllers, such as a photo-cell, time clock or remote energy management system. It installs on any multiple fixture lighting pole in minutes, says the company. Once installed, The Green Spider automatically allows all fixtures to operate normally during heavy daylight and evening traffic hours. At a predetermined time, The Green Spider turns off up to three individual 1,000-watt fixtures and leaves one remaining fixture illuminated for both local lighting codes and security. At dawn, The Green Spider resets itself for the next day’s lighting cycle.
The Green Spider costs about $300 per unit and comes with a complete satisfaction guarantee, says the company.
