Project uses integrated solar panels to charge street lights

A pilot project in Spain to use solar lighting in public areas
The project will see 20 units installed in Seville’s Infanta Elena Park. These integrate the solar panel, luminaire, charge controller and battery in one housing to make them compact and easy to install and maintain.

“Seville is a city committed to the fight against climate change and a model of a sustainable city that meets the objectives of the strategic plan Sevilla 2030 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” said Juan Espadas, Mayor of the City of Seville.
“All the municipal electricity supply is converted into 100% renewable energy. That is why it is so important that one of the green areas in the city is where we will develop an innovative business project to find solutions that improve citizens public spaces usage and, at the same time, contribute to the reduction of emissions and sustainability.”
Solar street light gets higher efficiency and longer working life with lower costs. It is energy saving to meet the city’s goals.
The lighting of the park allows the practice of outdoor sports outside the existing facilities during the night, as well as maximizing the use of this green space of the city by neighbors and visitors.
It is a pleasure to see the relevance of solar lighting in Europe countries. Surely many more municipalities will adopt solar street lighting installations in Europe, supporting this market’s strong growth for the coming years.
