Brighter, Safer, and Greener in Hamilton, TX: How Gama Sonic Commercial Grade Solar Lights Revitalize City Streets, Enhancing Safety and Savings

Posted in: | October 25, 2023

Hamilton, TX, a town steeped in history, faced the challenge of enhancing its downtown square area with new adequate lighting. Kayla R. Schraub, the Main Street Program Manager for Hamilton Historic Main Street, sheds light on their journey and how Gama Sonic’s Commercial Grade Solar lighting revitalized the town and became the beacon of transformation.

The Initial Need

The journey began when the town sought to replace its traditional electric lights, which had fallen into disrepair, such to broken infrastructure and high costs. The focus was on finding lighting that would enhance the downtown area and create a warm, inviting atmosphere for pedestrians.

Discovery of Gama Sonic

During the Texas Downtown Conference in 2022, Kayla and her EDC director stumbled upon Gama Sonic’s commercial-grade solar lights. “The appeal lies not only in the aesthetic of the solar lights but also in the sustainability factor,” Kayla said. What initially started as a search for traditional lighting took an unexpected turn towards solar energy. Kayla states, “The decision to go solar was driven by the desire for a historic and homely feel in the historic downtown area. The efficiency and aesthetics of Gama Sonic’s played a crucial role, and Gama Sonic’s Imperial lll Commercial Solar Triple Post Light stood out during the selection process, offering not just a visual allure but also sustainability by reducing dependence on the city’s electrical grid.”

Delving into the consideration and the shift from the traditional route to solar lighting, the Imperial III Commercial Solar Triple Post Light transforms any outdoor space with an air of sophistication and boasts three post light heads, this solar light not only elevates visibility in bustling areas but also adds a touch of refined charm to its surrounding areas. Designed for both commercial and residential settings, powered entirely by solar energy, this solar light is constructed with a durable frame and clear glass panels, casting a visually pleasing 360° light spread. Its replaceable battery pack and LEDs ensure hassle-free maintenance, guided by a user-friendly product manual. With Warm White and Bright White settings, tailor the lighting to your mood and needs.

With a sample solar light provided by Gama Sonic, the town tested Gama Sonic’s commercial-grade solar light against the challenges of Hamilton’s weather, including high winds, a significant concern. The positive feedback, quick assembly, and ability to change light settings added to the city’s satisfaction.

The municipality decision-making process involved the Main Street board approval, the economic development board, and final clearance from the city council. The alignment with the beautification aspect of the strategic plan played a crucial role in gaining approval.

The successful trial paved the way for the installation of eight units of  Gama Sonic’s Imperial III Commercial Solar Triple Post Light. City employees, the mayor, and community leaders joined hands for a quick and efficient installation process. The positive community feedback focused on the customizable lighting and overall aesthetic appeal, marking a successful implementation.

Cost Savings and Sustainability

While the financial aspect wasn’t the primary motivator, Kayla reflects on the potential cost savings and the sustainability factor that became integral to the decision, the town recognized the potential to save on electricity costs, and the decision to embrace solar lighting aligned with Hamilton’s commitment to sustainability and renewable energy moving forward.
