The solar PV panels on top of the pole capture the sun’s rays, turn them into electrical energy and store it in our NiMH (nickel-metal hydride) battery system, with Power365 technology. Then as the sun begins to set, the built-in dusk sensor tells the streetlight to switch on.
The level of lighting power is preadjusted as part of the project to meet the specific requirements of each customer. For example, it can be set to produce brighter lighting at nightfall and in the early morning, with a lower level of illumination in the middle hours of the night to limit light nuisance and pollution.
Fonroche solar streetlights can provide guaranteed lighting 365 nights a year, whatever the weather is.
