A bright future for outdoor solar lighting

  1. The number of Off-grid solar streetlights
  2. Grid or solar?

The conversation has heated up in recent months around the environmental impact of public policies, industry and our own lifestyles and choices. Caring for our planet isn’t just a trend. There’s a growing awareness of the damage we’re doing — and this is reflected in increasingly tight legislation.

The number of Off-grid solar streetlights

Faced with ever greater economic as well as environmental constraints, many country local authorities and public and private sector companies alike are adopting more ecologically responsible behaviours — including transitioning to solar lighting. The number of off-grid solar streetlights has risen significantly in the last five years, and solar is gaining real recognition as a sustainable solution with a bright future.

Grid or solar?

Grid-tied lighting is still the preferred choice for many, but it involves a lot more work. Before installation, contractors have to dig up the road and lay miles of cable, causing disruption at huge expense for taxpayers. Once installed, conventional streetlights need regular maintenance to keep them working properly. Despite this, they’ll still need replacing after 30 years or so. Added to costly installation and maintenance, there’s the price of the electricity they use, which has risen 40% in the last five years and will likely keep going up.

Compare with solar streetlights. They're quick and easy to install, with no trenching or cabling work. No maintenance is needed and there’s no electricity bill, since they’re entirely off-grid. Simple, cost-effective, kind to the environment — it’s the alternative solution of choice for businesses and authorities keen to reduce their ecological footprints.

Delivering powerful illumination on a par with grid-connected systems, solar lighting is a real gamechanger. Aware of the benefits, an ever growing number of businesses and authorities are transitioning to our eco-friendly solutions.
