NEW YORK, April 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarPath Sun Solutions, a leading developer, manufacturer, and marketer of architectural grade solar powered LED lighting solutions, today announced the installation of its HighLight Series ™ solar area lighting fixtures at the American Embassy in Costa Rica. This installation marks the initial phase of projects expected for the Central American Nation in 2011, with similar projects planned for local hotel developments and national parks.

Although traditional hard-wired fixtures were considered for the project, it became clear that the SolarPath HighLight Series ™ would save money in the installation costs as well as through energy savings over time. Coupled with the 5-year no maintenance guarantee offered exclusively through SolarPath and its representatives, the decision became clear that traditional wired lighting is a thing of the past.

"We are delighted with the breadth of interest in solar area lightings for commercial scale installations in Costa Rica," said Jonathan Robins, Director of International Business Development for SolarPath. "We are excited about our entry into the Costa Rican market for our products, and are currently in the final stages of several new opportunities in the region. We look forward to continued growth in Costa Rica and Central America."
