Solar Road Lights and Road Safety

Road Lights and Road Safety

Reducing trauma and saving lives, Leadsun’s solar powered road lights increase visibility and safety for all road users including vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists. They are suitable for a wide range of applications including pedestrian crossings, intersections, speed cushions, road humps, and accident black spots.

Road safety lighting powered by the sun

Solar road lights illuminate high-risk crash areas in urban, suburban, and rural transport networks using renewable energy. A solar engine on top of the light pole captures and stores energy from the sun. This power is then used to illuminate dangerous road sections and alert road users to changed traffic conditions. 

Retrofitting road safety with solar road light systems

Lighting for road safety applications can often be an afterthought once dangerous road conditions emerge. Fortunately,  Leadsun solar road lights don’t require a connection to the electricity grid, making them quick and easy to install, reliable and ideal for a wide range of road safety applications.

Quick and easy to install

Leadsun solar road lights can be installed in as little as 15 minutes. No trenching, cabling or concreting is needed, meaning less disruption for road users.

A cost-effective road light

Quick installation, minimal maintenance and no electricity bills means our solar road lights are the cost-effective and convenient lighting solution.

Sustainable Road Lights

Our road safety lighting systems capture and store energy free from the sun during the day and use it to create zero CO2 emissions light at night.

Adaptable road lighting

Solar road lights don't need to be connected to the electricity grid. This makes them ideal for remote regional locations and busy city streets where grid power is hard to access.

Global research has found that road lights at pedestrian crossings have a positive impact on pedestrian safety. An Italian study found that vehicles tend to slow down when approaching an illuminated pedestrian crossing, regardless of whether pedestrians were present or not.

We have proudly partnered with local councils around Australia to sustainably light pedestrian crossings and make communities safer. Find out more about road safety lighting for pedestrian crossings and how we can help.

As a guide, we can fully supply and install three compliant grid-free solar lighting systems for about $15,000. Costs will vary however depending on application, installation size, access and design.

Solar road lights are a more affordable option compared to grid-wired lighting with lower upfront & life-cycle costs.

Installation costs vary depending on application, installation size, access and design. As a general rule though, installation costs for our road safety lights are around a quarter of that for a similar grid-powered lighting system.

No electrical connections or underground cabling is required for Leadsun solar road lights. This means they can be fully installed in about 20% of the usual time required for a conventional grid-powered system. This means less cost to you and reduced disruption for road users.

Solar, LED and battery technology have come a long way in recent years. Our SMART solar LED lighting and patented battery technology is very mature technology and will match or outperform any other lighting solution on the market.

In Australia and New Zealand, all road lights including solar powered road lights must comply with strict Australian and New Zealand Lighting Standards. We provide a complete, fully engineered solution for you, ensuring compliance with AS/NZS 1158.3.1:2020. All of our systems are designed to ensure at least 3 nights of minimum lighting will be maintained, even on cloudy days without needing any power from the electricity grid.

Our SMART solar LED road lights require minimal maintenance. The photovoltaic solar panels do not require washing or dusting and our systems can be monitored remotely with wireless SMART technology.

if servicing is required, our lowerable pole technology makes access easy with no cranes or special equipment needed.

Normally, a Lithium-ion battery will last between five to eight years. However, with Leadsun’s patented, advanced battery technology we guarantee a battery will have at least 80% of its rated capacity at the end of 10 years. In practice, actual battery life can extend well beyond this with typical battery life being around 15 years.
