Solar light fixtures are those which combine solar powered technology and LED lighting technology, creating a fixture that benefits from the advantages that each provide. What does this mean? The electricity generated by the solar light fixture during the day is then used to power the solar light fixture
(and generate light) during the night.
The solar light fixture is an independent fitting not reliant on the electricity grid, enabling it to be installed anywhere that it is needed. In a landscape as vast as Australia, this can be a huge advantage over traditional street lighting. Not to mention the savings in cabling costs, rising electricity prices, and
the availability of solar energy for charging.
Australia’s Need for Solar Light Fixtures
Mainland Australia lies between latitudes 9° and 44° South, and longitudes 112° and 154° East. Australia’s size gives it a wide variety of landscapes, with tropical rainforests in the north-east, mountain ranges in the south-east, south-west and east, and desert in the centre. The desert or semi-arid land commonly known as the outback makes up by far the largest portion of land. Australia is the driest inhabited continent; its annual rainfall averaged over continental area is less than 500 mm. The population density is 3.2 inhabitants per square kilometre, although a large proportion of the population lives along the temperate south-eastern coastline.
