Highland Park residents lighting up their streets with solar power

Highland Park is a small community, and a poor one. When the city found itself facing a four million dollar unpaid street lighting tab in 2011, it couldn’t pay. Enter a group called Soulardarity. It started out with a simple goal: crowdfund enough money for one solar-powered streetlight in Highland Park, as a kind of demonstration project. Participants paid anywhere from $80-$150 to purchase and install the lights.
