Making an Eco-friendly Lighting on a Scenic Front

Cuevas de Anzota, Chile

Arica is a commune and a port city in the Arica Province of northern Chile’s Arica and Parinacota Region and also the capital of both the Arica Province and the Arica and Parinacota Region.

Arica is located at the bend of South America’s western coast known as the Arica Bend or Arica Elbow. Its mild weather has made Arica known as the “city of the eternal spring” in Chile while its beaches are frequented by Bolivians.

The Project ‘PEDZE’

Michelle Bachelet, the Hon’ble President of the Republic of Chile, Alberto Undurraga, the Minister of Public works and Gladys Acuna, the Mayor of Arica y Parinacota Region, took part in the inauguration of Plan Especial de Desarrollo de Zonas Extremas (PEDZE) – ‘the Special Plan for the Development of Extreme Zones’ where the investment volume reach 6280 million pesos on Corazones beach.

The president was fascinated by the beauty of the whole place after she walked over 1200 meters throughout the infrastructure which was built on the southern coastal edge of the city, following the coastal walk of Cuevas de Anzota.

The Challenge

The authorities have a challenge in illuminating the whole area without disrupting the scenic beauty and the eco-friendly concept of the infrastructure. Along the 1200 meters coastal walk there are biker’s lanes, shaded stations, parking lots, restrooms, street benches, maritime protection, lifeguard, and an esplanade for the food services.

The lighting also had to be bright enough to illuminate all these areas without compromising on the energy efficiency, easy to maintain, and eco-friendly.

In addition, the design of this coastal walk considered the concept of self-sustainability.

The Solution

Planners and designers selected LEADSUN’s AE3C series LED solar street light system for the massive project. The lights highlighted the architectural detail and natural view of the coastal walk.

A total of 240 units of LED solar street light systems were installed along the coastal edge using the LEADSUN’s products which exceeded in satisfying all their requirements.

The new installation from LEADSUN illuminated the whole region with solar and created a center of activity for the local community and visitors while enhancing the vibrant coastal front and encouraging further development.

Lighting Compliance

AS/NZS 1158.3.1 P3/P4

Project Overview

Due to many years of continual outages, ongoing and expensive repair costs to service the existing electric street and pathway lighting, the Meadowvale Retirement Village was in desperate need of a final solution to their problems. And when they realised that all the existing underground electric wiring needed to be replaced, they found this approach to be cost-prohibitive and too disruptive to the environment. Lendlease then decided to look for an alternative ‘grid-free’ solar lighting system solution.

Video Case Study

Leadsun Solution

    • 118 x AE2 Split Series Systems
    • Solar Module Size = 36W
    • LED output = 10W
    • Adaptive lighting control automatically dims lights to 30% during inactivity
    • Lithium-ion batteries provides 10+ years maintenance-free life span

    Leadsun presented Lendlease with a grid-free, cost-effective and dependable solar lighting system solution that would also provide a more layered lighting solution featuring low-glare, adaptive lighting control to create a safer and more inviting environment for residents and visitors.

    Working closely with NDY lighting consultants, Leadsun’s solar lighting systems complied to the required lighting AS/NZ 1158.3.1 standards. It was calculated that 118 solar lights were required to sufficiently illuminate the pathways, driveways, and car parks throughout all areas.

    Leadsun provided the AE2 series ‘split-system’ that was found to be both cost-effective and fit-for-purpose as it has a low-wattage asymmetrical lighting beam that controls spill light into the residential properties but ensures adequate and layered lighting for areas that matter most. As the residents didn’t want to have the areas over lit during periods of inactivity, the lights were programmed to mainly operate at 30% brightness, then once movement is detected the light increases to full brightness for 30 seconds. The program function also increases the battery autonomy in the winter months when the nights are longer and the days are shorter.

    All  lights were safely installed with lowerable poles to ensure all works are carried out at ground-level without need for working at heights or machines etc. Finally, as the Leadsun solution required no underground cabling, the installation was undertaken trouble-free and fast without any destruction of existing nature strips, footpaths, roads and car park areas.

“Leadsun’s Solar Lighting System Solution was effective, efficient and our lighting problem was solved. Our residences now feel safe and can see wherever they walk through the village.”

The City of Frankston responded to their communities needs by providing a much needed solar car park lighting solution for a busy car park at the Seaford North Reserve. The car park is used by the local sporting clubs, commuters using the Seaford train station and late evening dog walkers.

Leadsun Solution

  • 16 x AE3 Solar Engines
  • 1 x AE6 Solar Engine
  • 18 LSRM T3 Type Luminaires
  • Solar Module Size = 80W PV
  • LED Output = 1500Lm
  • P Category Lighting Compliance = P11C & P12
  • Adaptive lighting control automatically dims lights to 30% during inactivity
  • Lithium-ion batteries provides 10+ years maintenance-free life span

This lighting design provided some challenges to overcome as parts of the car park are heavily tree-lined with major tree roots. As our solution requires no underground cabling the tree roots were protected, however to provide complaint solar car park lighting to some disabled car spaces under trees, we installed a AE6 Master-Slave solar engine in a direct sun lit position, which powered the lights under trees. Further to this there were some special bracketing requirements with extensive outreaches to ensure P11C & P12 lighting compliance was met.

The final result shows a modern looking system that demonstrates smooth and consistent lighting throughout the car park with all compliance lighting met. This public space also has a much more inviting feel about it which allows the connected reserve to be safely accessed for longer periods of the day for a variety of people.

Lighting Compliance

ASNZ:1158.3.1 category V5

Project Overview

The Goulburn Mulwaree Council identified that one of their popular roadways was inadequately lit and was in need of a reliable off-grid street lighting solution. However, after looking into a grid-powered solution they realised the cost to trench and cable would go over budget so they needed a more affordable solution.

Having working together previously on a shared pathway lighting project, council approached Leadsun who were able to provide an affordable and compliant solution that could be self-funded under the Council’s Safe Road Program. The Lighting would also complement another off-grid street lighting council installed back in 2013 which saw 50 solar lights installed along the connecting Marys Mount Road.

Leadsun Solution

  • 8 x AE6130
  • 8 x Sylvania Street Leds
  • LED output = 14w
  • Lithium-ion batteries 768wh
  • Category Lighting Compliance = V5
  • Lithium-ion batteries provides 10+ years maintenance-free life span

Before installing solar engines and LED fixtures, important consideration was needed to the existing underground power and communication infrastructure installed throughout the area, which posed a significant risk of being damaged with traditional excavation equipment.

This project also included the provision for eight SMART Public Street Lights on 8.0M frangibles poles with 2.0m outreaches. The lights will operate from dusk-dawn.

The result is an adequately illuminated road up to standard and is all cable free and off the power grid which gives council a long lasting, reliable and sustainable solution for many years to come.

Project Overview

Concerns raised by the community about poor street lighting forced the City of Hobsons Bay to invest in a new street lighting system. The community felt that the lack of sufficient lighting was having a negative impact on their public health and safety.

Leadsun and GE were nominated as the preferred suppliers and contractor to design and install a quality and reliable integrated solar LED light system for roadways, using the industry approved GE Evolve LED fixture (1600 Lumens output) to illuminate a section of unlit roadway (160m) on Merton Street, Altona.

Leadsun Solution

  • 10 x AE6 Series – 200W solar engine
  • GE ‘Evolve’ 16W LED light heads
  • Adaptive lighting control automatically dims lights to 30% during inactivity
  • Lithium-ion batteries provides 10+ years maintenance-free life span

Before installing solar engines and LED fixtures, important consideration was needed to the existing underground power and communication infrastructure installed throughout the area, which posed a significant risk of being damaged with traditional excavation equipment.

A unique installation method using non-destructive Hydro / Suction excavation equipment, was proposed by Leadsun, which safely excavated the footing holes without any risk of damaging underground services.

Ten Leadsun 200W solar engines & GE ‘Evolve’ 16W LED fixtures were installed in optimal locations (solar irradiance & lighting performance) along a 160 metre section of road reserve and rail-line area.

Using a unique ‘lowerable pole’ concept developed to safely install and service the integrated solar LED light equipment at ground level, without use of any cranes or lifting equipment, the project was successfully completed in only 3 days, without disruption to vehicular or pedestrian traffic along the roadway.

  • Adaptive lighting control automatically dims lights to 30% during inactivity
  • Lithium-ion batteries provides 10+ years maintenance-free life span
  • Future proofed with built-in wireless control and monitoring system

Upon completion of the site survey it was determined that 5x Freestanding Solar Lights (10w LED) would be placed at 30m centres along the pathway. This project also included the illumination of their 3x Picnic Shelters featuring 5w Link lights. These Link lights were affixed to the Shelter’s Fascia and powered via remote solar engines circuited to each of the Structures. The Uniformity is very good with no ‘black’ spots within the path network.

The Urban Forest features a unique light timing sequence where the lights dim down to 30% brightness after
5 hours from dusk. From there the lighting is then operated by Motion Detector (PIR) until dawn.

Since installing this SMART Public Lighting solution, measured vandalism is down and the locals are very happy  as they are feeling safer when walking to and from their local shopping precinct.”
