Tanko Streetlighting, Inc. (DBA “Tanko Lighting”) was founded in 2003 with a simple mission – to help reduce the waste stream from street lighting. Originally started as a green manufacturer of refurbished street light fixtures, the company has evolved to a full service, technology-driven business model that incorporates design/build services, product procurement, engineering/technical support, and project management services to provide a tailored, turnkey solution for any outdoor lighting project. What distinguishes Tanko Lighting from other energy efficiency or lighting companies is its passionate and sole focus on street lighting. Unlike large Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) which spread services over a variety of measures, Tanko Lighting is steeped in the technical
knowledge and market context of street lighting.
