Solar LED Pole Lights New Zealand


Located in the southern hemisphere, New Zealand is made up of two main islands (the North Island, or Te Ika-a-Māui, and the South Island, or
Te Waipounamu) and a number of smaller islands, the largest of which being Stewart Island, Chatham Island, Great Barrier Island, D’Urville Island, and Waiheke Island. 

New Zealand is part of a region known as Australasia, together with Australia. It also forms the southwestern extremity of the geographic and ethnographic region called Polynesia. The term Oceania is often used to denote the wider region encompassing the Australian continent, New Zealand and various islands in the Pacific Ocean that are not included in the seven-continent model.

New Zealand’s climate is predominantly temperate maritime, with mean annual temperatures ranging from 10 °C in the south to 16 °C in the north. Historical maxima and minima are 42.4 °C in Rangiora, Canterbury and −25.6 °C in Ranfurly, Otago. Conditions vary sharply across regions from extremely wet on the West Coast of the South Island to semi-arid in Central Otago and the Mackenzie Basin of inland Canterbury, and subtropical in Northland.

Average annual sunshine in New Zealand

The major cities of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch all receive a yearly average of more than 2,000 hours of sunshine. The southern and southwestern parts of the South Island have a cooler and cloudier climate, with around 1,400–1,600 hours average; the northern and northeastern parts of the South Island are the sunniest areas of the country and receive about 2,400–2,500 hours per year.

Comparing these numbers to cities throughout Europe, it becomes clear that New Zealand is above average for average number of daylight hours throughout the year and a worthy candidate for solar LED pole lighting

Solar Lighting New Zealand

Much like its neighbour Australia, the connection to nature and preservation of
the natural landscape is a large part of the New Zealand identity. With an increased emphasis on sustainability and preservation of natural resources becoming a very important topic globally, there is the need to invest in sustainable alternatives
to fossil fuels and reliance on traditional electricity networks. 

Solar LED Pole lights present a viable alternative to the grid-powered street and area lighting. LED lighting has already proven to be the better choice for long life, reduced waste, and efficient lighting – when combined with solar integrated lighting it shows that lighting of the future is not dependent on existing electricity sources.
Solar lighting can generate its own electricity and provide lighting to streets and areas where it is needed for the safety and well being of people throughout the world. 

Much more than the preservation of natural resources but also their natural looks.

The Vertical Solar PV poles can be made to order with special textured finishes and more options as needed


How many hours of average sunlight do the three major cities of New Zealand receive?

: Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch all receive a yearly average of 2,000 hours sunshine.

Why are solar LED pole lights the future of outdoor lighting?
: As the world gradually moves away from fossil fuel sources, solar LED pole lights provide a viable alternative to grid-powered street and area lighting.
Why is solar lighting relevant for New Zealand?

: The connection to nature is a large part of the New Zealand identity. Solar LED pole lighting helps protect the natural world by generating their own power.
