What our clients say

“The solar lighting project was successfully completed with lighting levels throughout the park high enough to ensure that all pathways and car park areas are safe for the public to use at night without the fear of crime.”

Maribyrnong City Council

Skinner Reserve Precinct

Council’s use of sustainable energy options reflects community expectations. There is an increasing awareness that we can all do our bit to reduce carbon emissions across a broad range of smaller scale projects and in our individual lives. Along with many Goulburn residents, I enjoy running this track early in the morning or later in the afternoon. The lights will be a great addition to the course, particularly in winter.

The benefits of solar car park lighting:

Cost-effective solution for power conservation 
Our intelligent solar car park lighting offers huge economic savings, with no in-ground cabling or expensive work crews required for installation.

Enhanced community security and activity
Solar car park lighting creates a safer, more inviting environment, increasing the possible usage times of a car park.

Increased community safety and satisfaction

Our lights also come equipped with high-powered, adjustable light settings for low-use times, providing you significant energy cost savings.

Solar car park lighting FAQs:

As there is no electricity work to factor in, or underground cabling required, a solar car park lighting system can be installed significantly faster than the grid-powered lighting equivalent. As a comparison, traditional grid-powered lighting for a 1 km pedestrian pathway with P2/P4 lighting compliance would take approximately 12 weeks to install, compared to just 2 weeks using solar car park lighting. That means huge time savings, but also, huge labour cost savings.

SMART solar car park lighting systems are essentially maintenance-free, only requiring periodic cleaning of the solar panel and optics. Plus, because the solar panels are made with self-cleaning glass and are angled to obtain the maximum cleaning effect of the rain, they often need no maintenance at all. Also, as they can be easily monitored with wireless technology, if anything does need attention, our lowerable pole technology makes it easy to access the technology at the top of the pole.

LED lights are 30–50% more efficient than most traditional car park lights.

Benefits include:

  • Huge economic advantage, with SMART car park lighting needing no in-ground cabling or expensive work crews
  • Incredibly fast turn-around times and no disruption to the usability of an existing, functioning car park
  • Extended hours of use for community convenience, creating a safer and more inviting environment
  • High-powered, adjustable light settings for low-use times
