Solar Street Lighting

Designed for local roads this sustainable solution for is ideal increasing safety on poorly lit roads and intersections

Safety for motorists and pedestrians is paramount on low lit residential and rural streets. If we can light up these areas, it helps draw people’s attention to roundabouts, intersections, and a-joining pathways. 

SMART street light is the perfect solution for these applications as there is no underground cabling required which would pose a significant risk to existing underground power and communication infrastructure.

How does solar street lighting work?

Not only is solar street lighting off-grid, but it also conserves its own power by dimming down to 30% when no-one is around. This provides enough background light to ensure security and enough low light on accessways to maintain a sense of community, rather than isolating homes in the darkness.

When any significant movement is detected – whether that be by a vehicle or a pedestrian entering the street – the unit switches to 100 percent output, giving enough light to identify hazards on the accessway and plenty of light to deter unwanted activity.

When zero activity is detected, the unit dims quickly. This ensures the accessway is not lit all night with an unnecessary level of light, conserving solar power and ensuring residents are not impacted by any unnecessary light during the night.

The benefits of solar street lighting:

Intuitive solution for power conservation
Solar street lighting is an off-grid solution that conserves its own power by dimming down to 30% when no-one is around.

Cost-effective with a quick turnaround
Solar street lighting is an effective smart street light solution, with a quick installation turnaround and reduced labour and material costs.

Increased community safety and satisfaction 
With smart street light, residential areas experience greater safety and reliability. Not only is there increased safety, residents and councils are also saved the cost of hefty power bills and the intensive labour of running cables to light fittings.

Solar street lighting FAQs:

As each project differs in size and design and application requirements, installation costs vary. However, because solar street lighting requires no underground cabling and expensive machinery, installation costs are generally around a quarter of a grid-powered lighting equivalent.

Solar street lighting still charges on a cloudy day, however because clouds diffuse the strength of the sunlight, the charge at that time is less. However, Leadsun systems are sized appropriately to ensure the solar-panel-to-battery ratio can provide at least 3 days of battery autonomy, to maintain minimum lighting levels within the application at all times.

LED lights are 30–50% more efficient than most traditional streetlights.

    • Huge economic advantage, with SMART street light needing no in-ground cabling or expensive work crews
    • Incredibly fast turn-around times and no disruption to the usability of an existing, functioning roads
    • Increasing community and road safety of low lit roads 
    • Robust high powered systems with dependable performance
    • Providing solutions for:
      • Poorly lit roads with high traffic 
      • Local roads where power is not available
      • Councils who are looking for a sustainable future

Testimonials

See solar street lighting in action

Leadsun collaborates with Housing New Zealand

A recent project we completed with Housing New Zealand demonstrated just how significantly solar street lighting can transform a community space. Leadsun was tasked with the challenge to provide safe, sustainable, and cost-effective lighting for NZ’s most vulnerable housing communities. We felt passionate about this community project and put our all into developing and installing Leadsun solar street lighting across Auckland’s North Shore. We are so pleased to see these communities now experiencing the incredible benefits of solar street lighting.

Middle Arm Road Solar Street Lighting Project, Goulburn

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