Waste of money....How long will it take for these lights to pay for themselves ?

Solar powered lights - make sense. If we have a hurricane, and the power goes out, these things will still work. Makes sense.

Anybody have any idea how much money this will save in the long run? And how long they will last?
On the surface, it sounds like a good idea.
How bright are they?
Anybody seen them at night?
Thanks...

Providing they don't get knocked down in the storm.

Dania is smart. I think solar pwoered street lights is a good thing. What happens is, drug dealers need a dark environment. They break the electic powered lights to do their business. This is costing the city a tremendous amount of money. Can you see how the scum in Dania can cost the city money indirectly. These criminals are a waste of life they bread like cockroaches. many of them live the cockroaches. And we all know where and what neighborhood they live in. What a shame.

Solar powered lights? They will only work on sunny days-exactly when we dont need them on.

That's government for you. Next they will sell us dehydrated water.

If you have the right company make the lights, they have a reserve built in for those not so sunny days. It costs more money to trench and hang wires then it does for a pole to be put in the ground and be self-sustained. As far as cost, your gonna pay either way. Why not go green and save teh electricity for your house. Who knows, maybe your house electricty might go down. (doubt it)

Normally I'd agree with you that some commissioners are wasting taxpayers' money and time. But much as I detest Walter Duke and Bobby grace, not everything City Hall does is wrong. Moving the library was a smart move, because paying rent to Citibank in the old building was haemoraging funds. Solar lights may indeed have problems, but these will be fixed as they arise. Ray Kurzweill has predicted that in another twenty years solar technology will be so cheap that it'll make no sense to use other fuels.
