Street lighting is the ultimate application for solar power. Australia has over 1,940,000 street lights that are now responsible for over 1.15 million tonnes of CO2 per year (Sustainable Public Lighting Toolbox - see Useful Links).
Recent rapid improvements in technology have meant that solar powered street lighting is now a viable alternative to mains powered street lighting for many applications.
Green Thinking solar powered street lights can directly replace traditional 80 watt mercury vapour mains powered street lights, with up to 65m spacing for some Category P4 applications.
We can supply a wide range of configurations to suit a variety of applications, including:
Other applications for Green Thinking solar powered street lights include parks, boat ramps,
playgrounds and roadside rest areas.
