SOLANOVA in Tight Spots & Laneways
HIGHLUX supplied and installed 5x SOLANOVA systems in Robert Street and 5x custom-built solar lighting poles in Waterloo Road, Collingwood. The custom poles in Waterloo Road are a combination of 2x solar power stations connected to the light poles via underground ELV cables.
Solar can be the more cost-effective solution in some situations where the cost to pull up the blue stones of heritage areas, outweighs the few to be temporarily displaced for a stand-alone solar option. In general, if there is mains power already to an area, then remaining with mains can be more cost-effective than solar. Where new trenching, or replacing wiring, any rural and remote areas, and anywhere near water, solar lighting is implicated.
