Partingtons Flat Reserve in Greensborough, Victoria features beautiful bushland with recreational facilities, sports grounds and over 3Kms of illuminated pathways. Due to constant outages and costly repairs of the existing electric pathway lighting network, AusNet Services engaged Leadsun Australia to provide specialist advice and solutions to convert existing lighting from grid powered, to grid-free solar powered.
- 6 x AE6 390W Solar Engines with built-in Lithium Batteries
- 6 x EZYwinch Heavy Duty Lowerable poles

- AS/NZS 1158.3.1 Lighting Compliance – PP4
Leadsun’s engineering team designed an innovative solar powered solution comprising of six 390W solar engines installed in locations where there was optimal solar exposure. The solution utilises most of the existing underground conduits for the new ‘safe’ Extra-Low Voltage DC wiring require and was fully upgraded withing only 2 weeks of onsite works, with only minimal disruption to the public using the pathway. This Grid-Free solar powered conversion is estimated to save client nearly $100,000 in costs compared to re-installing traditional electric wiring throughout the site.
Additionally, the existing AusNet Services lighting poles were able to be reused and their old light fixtures replaced with Leadsun’s new modern SMART led lights featuring wireless web-based control & monitoring, PIR motion sensors that automatically dim the lights when there is no movement detected. The new LED lights also feature 3000K colour and are Dark Sky approved meaning they limit the effects of sky-glow and obtrusive glare into nearby residential properties and the nocturnal wild life.
Our Residents have been wanting this magnificent park to be well used for many years and being nobody’s fault, our community has been restricted, however through persistence and time we were able to provide the solution that is natural energy powered by the SUN. Thank You AUSNET and Leadsun for the great teamwork that has made this possible.
