Tennessee firm completes solar powered project in Puerto Rico

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) - A middle Tennessee-based solar company announced the completion of a new project in Puerto Rico to install new street lighting.

Ten lights were donated and installed by CredoGroup at a Puerto Rican orphanage, according to a news release.

The firm states extended batteries installed with the lights allow them to stay lit for three straight days without power or sunlight.

The lights can also be monitored remotely.

The firm says the new lights provide efficient and inexpensive lighting while operating independently of the power grid.

Other Tennessee entities have helped perform aid missions in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma hit the island in 2017, including the Tennessee Civil Air Patrol and the Tennessee Air National Guard.
