Natural resources around the world are being depleted at rates never before seen. As the global population increases and demand for consumer goods continues to rise, the finite resources mankind has been extracting from the Earth will in a few generations be all but depleted. Now more than ever
is the time to plan for the inevitable and develop new ways of conducting business that are sustainable, both to nature and mankind around the world.
Our dependence on fossil fuels is something that many people do not want to address, ignoring the fact that there are readily available renewable sources at our fingertips.
At LIGMAN we are not willing to wait for world leaders to take the necessary steps and move in the right direction. Innovating through solar pole lights means that we are
no longer dependent on the electricity grid and fossil fuel generating power plants
of the 20th century, and can instead look towards the future which is lit by solar powered lights.
Solar Pole Lights in South Africa
South Africa is the south most country on the African continent. It lies between latitudes 22° and 35° South and longitudes 16° and 33° East. Surrounded by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans it has a generally temperate climate, though there are also regions of arid desert in the west of the country. Hours of daylight range from lows of 10 hours per day in winter to up to 14 hours in the height of summer. With little variance when compared to Europe, South Africa
is an idea candidate for utilising solar pole lights for street and area lighting.
In fact South Africa has been called the third best solar location in the world! With a number of major solar farm projects for generating electricity
in the region. When so many have already embraced the technology locally, it makes all the more sense to adopt solar pole lighting in South Africa as well.
