Feature Lighting with a Single Solar Bollard: Lighting the Gold Field’s Night with the Sun
Out the front of the Coolgardie Visitors Centre & Goldfields Exhibition Museum is a “prospectors rock” to mark the “entry to the goldfields”. The visitors centre decided the rock needed a little more fanfare through the night and chose the solar bollard to do the job. This was the perfect choice in placement, position, amount of light, and effect.
A low power model of solar bollard was used because there is considerable shade from the museum building over the rock. The 80mA SBL1 can operate reliably for the term of its 5-year warranty (minimum) with 4 hours of direct sun in winter.
