Solar Light Fixture

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.

Despite its varied landscape the vast majority of Australia receives high levels of solar radiation throughout the year. This fact alone makes it an ideal location for the application of solar light fixtures in both urban and regional centres. 

Grid independence and remote locations

Another major benefit of solar light fixtures that is particularly appealing for Australia is the fact that solar light fixtures are grid independent. The obvious advantage of this is not being tied to the increasing costs of fossil fuel generated power, the less obvious is that solar light fixtures can be installed anywhere that they are needed. This is a huge advantage for a country like Australia which has so many remote communities – and roads connecting them – without the same reliable sources of power that are available in the major cities. 

Through the use of solar light fixtures, towns and communities that have not typically had access to reliable street lighting in the past, can now benefit from the safety and well being that they provide.

FAQs

What is a solar light fixture?

: An autonomous unit that converts solar energy into power which is for electric lighting.

What benefits do solar light systems provide?
: Independence from the utility grid and increased flexibility to locate fittings where they are needed. 
Why is Australia an ideal location for the application of solar light fixtures?

: The available of solar radiation, and the number of locations with limited utility infrastructure make Australia an ideal location for solar light fixtures.
