City Welcomes New Solar-Powered Lights at G.A.R. Park
HAVERHILL- Mayor James J. Fiorentini, State Representative Brian S. Dempsey (D-Haverhill) and Renewable Energy Trust Director Carter Wall and others today cut the ribbon on a new solar-powered lighting display that will illuminate the Veteran’s Flagpole at the G.A.R. Park in Haverhill.
The City obtained this lighting system at no cost to City taxpayers as part of a solar-powered lighting demonstration program made possible by a grant from the Renewable Energy Trust. The installation of this system was made possible by the generosity of labor from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local #103, working in conjunction with the City of Haverhill Department of Public Works.
Shining on the American flag near the Hannah Duston Statue and war cannon, providing additional lights for pedestrians along Main Street and in GAR Park, the SolarOne Solutions lights are 100% solar-powered, providing 7 hours of peak lighting.
