SavWatt USA, Inc., a company focused on developing innovative, energy-efficient and cost-effective LED lighting solutions, announced this morning that it will be installing an Eco-Pole at Washington, DC Department of Transportation (DOT) managed park and at the State University at Stony Brook in Long Island, New York at the University’s new Energy Building.

SavWatt’s Eco-Pole is a LED street light that uses wind and solar technology for its energy source, negating the need for connection to the electrical grid. Another Eco-Pole will be installed in a Washington, DC Park facility managed by the DOT where security lighting is urgently needed. Because the Eco-Pole does not require underground electrical wires, it can be easily and swiftly installed.

Sam Abecassis, VP of Business Development of SavWatt, commented, “Our Eco-Pole recently attracted worldwide attention while featured at the international LightFair. Wind and solar powers this LED street light. Additionally, the wind turbine’s aesthetics make it unique and at a $10,000 price tag, the Eco-Pole functions as a true eco solution that can be implemented nationwide and beyond.”
