Lighting is an important detail to any landscape and at Deerfield, we care about detail. We installed solar-powered lighting on our flagpole. The solar energy powers LED lights in a single unit. These lights are designed to provide adequate light throughout the night, activated at dusk and deactivated at dawn.
We found that relying entirely on solar lighting for our flagpole worked most of the time. There are a few times when we have the need to use electric power. Fortunately, our Facilities Department created a hybrid system using mostly solar power that transfers automatically to electric power when needed.
