The SolarPoint™ Lighting system, also called hybrid solar lighting, consists of a roof-mounted SolarPoint™ Platform, a 45’ long plastic fiber optic bundle, and a number of special “hybrid” luminaires. The technology concentrates natural sunlight into a small bundle of optical fibers that “pipe” sunlight directly into a building or enclosure. Special lighting fixtures called hybrid luminaires diffuse light throughout the space, delivering up to 25,000 peak lumens. The hybrid luminaires blend the natural light with existing artificial lighting to provide controllable interior lighting. As sunlight levels increase and decrease, a daylight harvesting controller automatically increases or decreases the co-located artificial lighting proportionally, providing significant energy savings during daylight hours.
