The solar street light project will see 20 units installed in Seville’s Infanta Elena Park using SunStay technology from Philips. These integrate the solar panel, luminaire, charge controller and battery in one housing to make them compact and easy to install and maintain. Signify is the new name for Philips Lighting after its spinout in 2018.
“Seville is a city committed to the fight against climate change and a model of a sustainable city that meets the objectives of the strategic plan Sevilla 2030 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals,” said Juan Espadas, Mayor of the City of Seville.
“All the municipal electricity supply is converted into 100% renewable energy. That is why it is so important that one of the green areas in the city is where we will develop an innovative business project to find solutions that improve citizens public spaces usage and, at the same time, contribute to the reduction of emissions and sustainability.”
Philips SunStay solar street light technology saves on cabling costs, reduce carbon footprint and lower overall capital and operational expenditure. With an output of 3,000 lumens of warm light and an efficacy of 175 lm/W, they’re more efficient than existing solar street lights, claims Signify.
The lighting of the park allows the practice of outdoor sports outside the existing facilities during the night, as well as maximizing the use of this green space of the city by neighbours and visitors.
“We’re very pleased to show the relevance of solar lighting in European countries,” said Harsh Chitale, Business Group Leader Professional. “I’m confident that many more municipalities will adopt solar street lighting installations in Europe, supporting this market segment’s strong growth expectations for the coming years.”
The new lighting has been installed in the month of June in a shorter time than necessary for conventional public lighting, due to civil works and installation of wiring, reducing the cost and inconvenience to citizens.
