Abstract : New physical security requirements call for nighttime entry lighting to DOD magazines. Many magazine compounds do not have immediate access to electrical powerlines. Photovoltaic power coupled with high efficiency lamps is discussed in this document, and the advantages of this type of system are discussed. Cost comparisons with grid-connected lights are presented. (Author)
