Middle Arm Road Off-grid Street Lighting
Goulburn Mulwaree Council
ASNZ:1158.3.1 category V5
The Goulburn Mulwaree Council identified that one of their popular roadways was inadequately lit and was in need of a reliable off-grid street lighting solution. However, after looking into a grid-powered solution they realised the cost to trench and cable would go over budget so they needed a more affordable solution.
Having working together previously on a shared pathway lighting project, council approached Leadsun who were able to provide an affordable and compliant solution that could be self-funded under the Council’s Safe Road Program. The Lighting would also complement another off-grid street lighting council installed back in 2013 which saw 50 solar lights installed along the connecting Marys Mount Road.
- 8 x AE6130
- 8 x Sylvania Street Leds
- LED output = 14w
- Lithium-ion batteries 768wh
- Category Lighting Compliance = V5
Lithium-ion batteries provides 10+ years maintenance-free life span
Before installing solar engines and LED fixtures, important consideration was needed to the existing underground power and communication infrastructure installed throughout the area, which posed a significant risk of being damaged with traditional excavation equipment.
This project also included the provision for eight SMART Public Street Lights on 8.0M frangibles poles with 2.0m outreaches. The lights will operate from dusk-dawn.
The result is an adequately illuminated road up to standard and is all cable free and off the power grid which gives council a long lasting, reliable and sustainable solution for many years to come.
