(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Santa Fe, New Mexico September 14, 2009 — Qnuru Lighting, a , has been selected by the City of Santa Fe Mayor’s Office and the Parks & Public Works Department as the top local design for solar/LED lighting throughout Frenchy Field Park.  The site of a historic former dairy farm, Frenchy Field Park is a recreation area landscaped with native wildflowers that links to the Santa Fe River and the City’s open space network of trails and parks.

Qnuru’s line of landscape lighting products combine efficient LED technology, advanced solar engineering and integrated control systems. Each lighting fixture is designed to illuminate architectural features, walkways and plantings; all are Dark Sky compliant with non-glare directional down lighting for parks, campuses, cityscapes and parking areas. Digital microcontrollers provide intelligent power management and a full complement of features that can be custom selected and wirelessly programmed.

“In this, Santa Fe’s 400 Anniversary year, we are thrilled to be able to help design a new park lighting fixture that reflects the beauty of our city’s natural setting and harnesses the abundant sunshine with which we are so blessed,” said David Dross, Santa Fe mayor.  “As we look forward to our next 400 years, we know that it will be environmentally sustainable solutions like Qnuru’s solar and LED lighting fixtures which will help preserve this precious planet.”

According to Fabian Chavez, Director of the city’s Parks, Trails and Watershed Division, “The lighting system we commissioned from Qnuru is the first in the country to feature solar and LED technologies in a system that is free from the grid and powerful enough to illuminate large public parks and trailheads where no electrical infrastructure exists.  We expect it to set a national standard that other cities and parks will emulate.”

“The new Qnuru lighting fixtures for Frenchy Field Park give customers a completely integrated solution that has the least human imprint,” said Dee Dennis, CEO of Visible Light Solar, Qnuru’s parent corporation.  “Not only are these lights Dark Sky compliant but they give Santa Fe a solution that respond to concerns about energy usage.  We’re out to change outdoor lighting with our solar and LED solutions, ensuring the right lighting for safety while reducing overall environmental impacts.  That’s a win, win, win.”

Naming Contest

As part of the unveiling of the new Qnuru light fixture design for Santa Fe’s Frenchy Field Park, the city’s Public Works Department, in conjunction with Qnuru, are launching a contest among school age children to officially name the new light fixture.  The student whose name is selected will win an Amazon Kindle ebook and $100 worth of downloads.  Details on the contest will be posted on the city website, www.santafenm.gov, in the coming weeks.
