Solar lighting can be economical in remote areas, where the cost of connecting to the grid would be difficult or expensive.
County Carlow local authority had a car park to illuminate which was used by tourists and locals for walking and general sight seeing. When these walkers returned to their car park after dark, it was both a discomfort and a safety concern in finding their car. It was not practical to connect to the electricity grid as the nearest connection point was several kilometers away.
Instead a stand alone solar lighting LED system was installed, with automatic occupancy sensor control and a time delay mechanism to allow users to vacate the car park slowly. The system was augmented with a wind turbine on this Project. With anticipated 2 hours of use per night and a 2 week battery backup, the system is designed for year round usage.
To get a detailed Proposal for your Solar Lighting project:
Please send Autocad drawing or concept drawings to us. We will calculate the number of solar lighting fittings required and advise light levels. We will advise where they should be located and the cost of the Equipment. There is no charge or obligation for suitable Projects. Other lighting may need to be added for landscaped areas or to add decorative architectural effect.
