Solar Street Lights
Saving Our Planet
Our SLaaS solution offers environmentally sensitive installations that minimize soil and ground disturbance. Whether we’re using direct burial poles or minimally invasive precast or helical anchoring, SLaaS solutions create less disturbance than the invasive excavation and installation of conventional in-ground piping and wire.
HOW SLaaS WORKS
It’s all about simplicity
We combine the power of the sun with:
Our photovoltaic solar panel: RET’s state of the art self-cleaning solar modules have a performance warranty that guarantees a 30-year service life. High-efficiency crystalline cells provide optimal light capture in all weather conditions.
Our battery:
RET uses NiMH batteries that perform optimally at all temperatures from –40°C to +70°C (–40°F to +158°F)  with a minimum service life of 4,000 charge-discharge cycles. The lightweight, compact battery unit is housed under the PV panel atop the pole for improved security.
Our Smart controls:
RET solar lighting provides fully programmable lighting profiles with a safe and secure no outage, anti-blackout 365 nights a year lighting guarantee.
Our Luminaire:
RET’s high-performance, energy-efficient LED lights range from 20 to 120 watts nominal, with integral heat dispersion and a service life second to none in the industry.
Our mounting solutions:
RET’s flexible and diverse, standard or custom pole and bracket solutions can be tailored to fit nearly almost any requirement.
Ease and speed of assembly:
Simple, straightforward 30 to 45 minute installation saves time and money.

KEEPING YOU HEALTHY-RET IS A COVID 19 SENSITIVE INSTALLER:
KEEPING YOU HEALTHY
RET IS A COVID 19 SENSITIVE INSTALLER:
In the current COVID 19 world of lock downs and social distancing, RET installation crews are the perfect example of how to move forward with timely and safe projects of any size. Designed and set up as independent 2- or 3-man crews, our teams can install with little or no interaction with the general public, social distance according to the federal, state and local guidelines and utilize masking as required. Our Solar Lighting as a Service program drastically reduces the amount of personnel required, minimizes or eliminates interaction with the general public and nearly eliminates all environmental disruption. No trenching (Lose the Trench), no excessive insertion of plastic piping hiding underground below grade for generations, no sand setting bed required for inspections during a global sand crisis, no concrete encasement, minimal or no diesel burning excavation equipment required, no backfilling, no excess and possibly contaminated spoils to be disposed of. RET also eliminates the need for additional manpower and expense required to purchase deliver, pull and connect all the standard grid tied underground infrastructure. Less disruption and less personnel mean a safer, healthier installation. 
In today’s COVID-19 reality of lockdowns and physical distancing, RET installation crews are exceptionally demonstrating how to move forward with safe, timely projects of any size. 

Designed and set up as independent 2 or 3 person crews, our teams can install your systems with little to no interaction with the general public. All while respecting federal, state and local physical distancing guidelines. Our teams are equipped with masks to use as required.

The nature of our Solar Lighting as a Service program drastically reduces the number of personnel required on-site, minimizes or eliminates interaction with others, and nearly eliminates all environmental disruption. 

Our “Lose the Trench” philosophy ensures there will be no excessive insertion of plastic piping underground. No sand setting bed required for inspections. No concrete encasement, no backfilling, minimal or no diesel-burning excavation equipment and no disposing of excess potentially contaminated soils. 

RET also eliminates the need for the additional personpower and expense required to purchase, deliver, pull and connect all the standard underground infrastructure. Less disruption and personnel translates to a safer, healthier installation of your SLaaS system.
