Leadsun Global

Leadsun’s sustainable lighting solution is designed for local roads and increases safety on poorly lit roads and intersections

On residential roads, safety is paramount for drivers and pedestrians alike. When lit up, attention to roundabouts, intersections and adjoining pathways is drawn, thus increasing safety.

SMART street lights are the perfect option for existing residential roads. As these lights do not require underground trenching or cabling, they do not disrupt residential areas and do not pose a significant risk to existing underground power and communication infrastructure.

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”

How does solar street lighting work?

SMART solar street lighting by Leadsun is grid-free as it is powered by solar energy. Additionally, Leadsun’s solar lights conserve battery power by dimming to 30% when an area is empty. This lighting level provides a baseline level of security in outdoor areas.

When vehicle or pedestrian movement is detected, the system increases to 100% light output, which provides high quality lighting that can be used to identify hazards clearly. Once movement has passed, the system dims again. This prolongs the battery life of the unit whilst also ensuring that nearby residents are minimally impacted by street lighting.

Solar street lighting FAQs:

How much does solar street lighting cost?

Each solar lighting project is unique. No two projects are the same size, have the same application and use the same design, therefore costs will vary. However, when compared to traditional grid lighting, solar street lighting is far more cost-effective as installation does not require underground excavation and wiring, and light maintenance does not require ongoing power fees.

Do solar street lights charge on cloudy days?

As clouds diffuse the strength of sunlight, solar lights will charge less on a cloudy day than they do on a sunny day. Leadsun’s SMART solar lighting systems account of this by creating a solar panel-to-battery ratio that provides at least 3 days of battery autonomy.

Why should I choose solar over a traditional street lighting option?

In addition to the cost-savings, sustainability and ease of installation, solar LED lights are 30-50% more efficient than most traditional street lights, making them an ideal option for public spaces, including residential and rural streets.

Leadsun collaborates with Housing New Zealand

A recent project we completed with Housing New Zealand demonstrated just how significantly solar street lighting can transform a community space. Leadsun was tasked with the challenge to provide safe, sustainable, and cost-effective lighting for NZ’s most vulnerable housing communities. We felt passionate about this community project and put our all into developing and installing Leadsun solar street lighting across Auckland’s North Shore. We are so pleased to see these communities now experiencing the incredible benefits of solar street lighting.

Middle Arm Road Solar Street Lighting Project, Goulburn

The Goulburn Mulwaree Council identified that one of their popular roadways was inadequately lit and needed a reliable lighting solution. However, after looking into a grid-powered solution, they realized the cost to trench and cable would go over budget, so they needed a more cost-effective option.
