Solar Pathway Lighting

The sustainable solution for safer and more intuitive solar pathway lighting in communities

Shared Pathways are becoming more and more popular within communities today. Not only do they encourage more walking and cycling, but they improve alternative travel paths and are incremental to supporting health and wellbeing in the community.

But just imagine if these community assets could be used by more people for longer periods of the day, simply by bringing the light of day into the night and creating a safer, more active community.

What Our Clients Say

“We are not disturbing or contaminating, so it is a really good option for us. We have the EZYpole which is the winch pole without having to bring a Cherry Picker. Just by lowering the pole from the ground saved us a lot of money. It was a no-brainer to put these lights in here and the fact that was done in one day made it even better”

Maribyrnong City Council


"The increased lighting is a very welcome addition to this popular walkway and I know locals are looking forward to feeling safer when walking along the path at night."

Solar Pathway Lighting

Leadsun’s solar pathway lighting is the sustainable solution for safer and more inviting walkways and pathways. It is an intuitive, intelligent lighting solution powered by the sun’s energy, with a wireless control system that allows you to configure it from anywhere in the world. Our advanced, sustainable solar pathway lighting technology enables you to create ambient community spaces with increased activity and engagement, bringing public places to life.

How does solar pathway lighting work?

Leadsun’s solar pathway lighting is a technologically versatile, off-grid sustainable lighting solution that conserves power by dimming down to 30% capacity when there is no activity. This provides enough background light to ensure security and enough low light on accessways to maintain a sense of community, rather than isolating homes in the darkness.

When any significant movement is detected – whether that be by a vehicle or a pedestrian entering the street – the unit switches to 100% output, giving enough light to identify hazards on the accessway and plenty of light to deter unwanted activity.

When zero activity is detected, the unit dims quickly, ensuring the accessway is not lit all night with an unnecessary level of light. This conserves solar power and ensures residents are not impacted by any unnecessary light during the night.

Our solar pathway lighting is controlled through wireless remote technology with an off-site wireless control that allows users to remotely monitor and configure the lighting system from anywhere in the world.

The benefits of solar pathway lighting:

Intuitive Solution for Power Conservation 
Solar pathway lighting is an off-grid solution that conserves its own power by dimming down to 30% when no-one is around.

Cost-effective with Enhanced Community Comfort
Opting for solar pathway lighting offers huge economic advantages, because no in-ground cabling or expensive work crews are required to install our intelligent and intuitive lighting solutions.

Increased Community Safety and Satisfaction 
Leadsun’s solar pathway lighting helps to ensure greater community safety. Improved lighting creates ambient and welcoming shared community spaces with increased activity and engagement, along with decreased rates of crime.

How much does solar pathway lighting cost?

As every project differs in size and specifics, there is not a set price per light. However, as a rule of thumb we can fully supply and install three engineered and compliant grid-free solar pathway lighting systems for under $10,000.

What is a SMART controller?

Leadsun’s SMART Controller offers flexible accessibility. Its intelligent power adjustment function automatically modifies power discharge according to the remaining energy, allowing it to prolong lighting time. This in turn provides a more effective method of lighting control, minimising energy consumption and providing greater battery autonomy and operational reliability.

Is it easy to maintain a SMART solar pathway lighting system?

There is minimal maintenance required on a SMART solar pathway lighting system as it can be easily monitored with wireless technology. If anything does need attention, our lowerable pole technology makes it easy to access the technology at the top of the pole.

  • Huge economic advantage, with no in-ground cabling or expensive work crews required to install our intelligent solar path lights
  • Installation anywhere, with incredibly fast turn-around times due to easy-to-install lowerable pole technology
  • Increased usage times of pathways, contributing to a safer, healthier and more inviting environment
  • Providing solutions for:
    • Pathways for exercise, recreation or commuters
    • Thoroughfares connecting community hubs
    • Bike tracks for commuters and recreation

Leadsun lights the way with solar pathway lighting along Princes Highway, Werribee
Due to the high amount of traffic along a 1000 m section of the shared pathway parallel to the Princes Highway, Wyndham City Council identified the need for more light to create a safer environment.
Narellan Urban Forest solar pathway and picnic shelter lighting
In consultation with police in the Camden Local Area Command, the Camden Council acquired a Crime Prevention Grant seeking a lighting solution that would deter loitering, reduce vandalism and give safe passage for local residents along a 150 m stretch of the pathway in the Urban Forest, Narellan.
