PALM CITY, Fla. – Sol Inc. (Solar Outdoor Lighting), the world leader in Solar LED outdoor lighting donated five solar powered LED Transit Shelter Security Lights to the City of Port St. Lucie to enhance the safety and security of local school area children.

“Many of our employees live in the Port St. Lucie area and we felt compelled to assist the City’s initiative in protecting children who are waiting for a ride to school.” said Michael Sonnenfeldt, chairman of Sol Inc. “We are providing an environmentally friendly lighting system that improves the safety and comfort of the children and can be used to teach them about renewable energy.”

St. Lucie. “The donated lighting is now providing user safety during the dark hours of early-dawn. The City is fortunate to have a company such as Sol that is willing to unselfishly give of itself in making our community a better place to live.”
