Southshore Bay has all the elements for a great life. One of which, is the solar streetlight system previously called iLights. We have recently renamed the proprietary streetlight system for marketing purposes and you will start to see updates within the Southshore Bay communications. iLights is now
StreetLeaf. Same benefits, same system, same exclusivity, just a different name. 

Streetleaf is the first-of-a-kind streetlight system offering nighttime security, energy savings, modern appeal and more. 

Plus, each pole has a custom QR code. Anyone with a smartphone can easily report an issue or outage using the code right away, making brightening up the community easier than ever.
