M. Neils provided the electrical and lighting design for approximately 3,100 linear feet of lighted pathway at this regional park in Sacramento, California. The firm prepared a detailed lighting analysis of pathway lighting on three different pathways at the park. The report included an estimate of construction cost, maintenance cost and expected electricity cost, as well as a payback analysis.
Several different styles of lighting fixtures were presented for consideration by the City. Two different types of lighting systems were modeled: a conventional system of LED pole mounted fixtures hard-wired to the electric utility system, and an integrated solar-powered LED pole-mounted system that included poles, luminaires, solar panels and storage batteries.
The final design included pathway lighting with 49 pole-mounted luminaires and three luminaires to illuminate the existing artwork near North Park Drive. The controls for the new pathway lighting were designed to provide dusk-to-dawn lighting via wirelessly networked photocells and motion sensors.
