SolarOne's Steve T. was on-site to observe the installation of Ak Chin's first Integra 300 installation. Ak Chin has installed multiple pedestrian projects using the legacy Inovus Design Pole. The new Integra 300 opens the door for solar parking lot lighting and solar street lighting. The added power of the CIGs panel, the larger battery capacity and higher efficiency luminaire combine to provide more light without changing the original design.
Ak Chin likes the sleek appearance of the wrapped pole, but also considered the long battery life and resistance to vandalism in their decision. With further development in the community, more are on the way.
