09/25/18 Taking on Hurricanes with Solar LED Light Towers

Taking on Hurricanes with Solar LED Light Towers

Hurricane season can be challenging to overcome without the right equipment, such as solar LED towers. These sustainable units can support numerous types of activities during rough storms, from evacuation to supplying power to emergency equipment.

Why Solar Panels?

As a decentralized solution to power, solar LED towers are capable of bringing power to locations affected by storms. During hurricanes, electricity is usually turned off by the local power company or lines are damaged, which causes power outages.

When coupled with a robust battery bank, a reliable PV system can provide power to a wide range of equipment during these times. Additionally, when equipped with lights, solar LED towers provide illuminative support for temporary camp sites, security checkpoints and more.

Without needing to refuel constantly, solar LED towers can be deployed in remote locations with minimal effort. This is a huge advantage for locations that become inaccessible during hurricanes. Solar LED masts used in sites affected by hurricanes may be equipped with emergency strobes, dusk/dawn sensors and etc. Moreover, when doubling as a security tower, the assemblies may come with outdoor cameras.

Addressing Durability

PV systems are reinforced with solid-state builds and construction, making such units sturdier compared to traditional generators with loose parts and harmful emissions. Depending on where the solar panels will be deployed, individuals should consider exposure to strong winds. Most heavy-duty systems (panels only – not including the tower) can withstand winds up to 140 mph. Furthermore, some states prone to hurricanes and crippling storms require installations capable of withstanding 160 mph (such as Florida).

For solar LED towers deployed in disaster zones or areas deeply affected by hurricanes, it is recommended to ensure the units are weatherproof and waterproof (with a proper IP rating). To protect light towers, it is also important to monitor air movement. Such devices used for this type of activity includes: wind socks, sensors and auto-retract features.
