    Gardco SolarForm helps solve your next outdoor lighting challenge…and earn tax credits!

    October 20, 2020
    Signify is pleased to announce the availability of Gardco SolarForm, an outdoor solar lighting product ideal for rural areas, parks and walkways, corporate campuses and more. Gardco has been a trusted brand in outdoor lighting for more than 60 years and is unlocking the benefits of solar lighting for North American cities and municipalities, with proven technology already in use by Signify customers across the globe.
    SolarForm is an integrated solar lighting solution, with a lithium iron phosphate battery, solar panel and charge controller built into the luminaire. It features a die-cast aluminum housing for sturdiness and long life, while offering high brightness illumination with low blackout risk. Optional motion sensors and multiple dimming profiles adjust the lighting based on occupancy to extend the battery charge.

    With SolarForm, you can expand lighting coverage to areas where conventional solutions are not possible. This aesthetically pleasing product can be quickly installed in areas without access to grid power, or where trenching is difficult. No area is too remote when the power comes from the sun!


    When replacing traditional lighting, solar lighting solutions such as this can help you save money with reduced electric costs. You can also take advantage of government rebates and tax incentives. SolarForm, for example, qualifies for the federal Solar Investment Tax Credit (ITC), currently being offered by the U.S. Department of Energy. The ITC offers 26% for projects having commenced construction in 2020 (between January 1, 2020, and December 31, 2020), with a gradual decline to 22% in 2021, and 10% in 2022. Typically, solar lighting that is eligible for the ITC can also use an accelerated depreciation corporate tax deduction. To learn more about this government tax credit, please visit the U.S. Department of Energy’s Guide to the Federal Investment Tax Credit for Commercial Solar Photovoltaics.
