Solar Street Lighting

Leadsun’s sustainable lighting solution is designed for local roads and increases safety on poorly lit roads and intersections

On residential roads, safety is paramount for drivers and pedestrians alike. When lit up, attention to roundabouts, intersections and adjoining pathways is drawn, thus increasing safety.

SMART street lights are the perfect option for existing residential roads. As these lights do not require underground trenching or cabling, they do not disrupt residential areas and do not pose a significant risk to existing underground power and communication infrastructure.

How does solar street lighting work?

SMART solar street lighting by Leadsun is grid-free as it is powered by solar energy. Additionally, Leadsun’s solar lights conserve battery power by dimming to 30% when an area is empty. This lighting level provides a baseline level of security in outdoor areas.

When vehicle or pedestrian movement is detected, the system increases to 100% light output, which provides high quality lighting that can be used to identify hazards clearly. Once movement has passed, the system dims again. This prolongs the battery life of the unit whilst also ensuring that nearby residents are minimally impacted by street lighting.

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
