Solent wind turbines are an environmentally friendly and cost effective alternative to grid connected amenity lighting and an innovative, cost-saving solution to light at off-grid sites. It is quite simply powered by a Solent Wind Turbine and Solar photovoltaic panels.
Locations previously considered too far from the grid but require lighting can now be considered.The wind and solar powered solution delivers free, renewable energy which is stored in a battery ready to be consumed when darkness falls. Solent wind turbines are already in use all over the UK on footpaths, playgrounds and car parks.
Solent wind turbines have been developed for the expanding use of renewable energies throughout the world. The small discreet wind turbine and solar panel quietly and efficiently generate sufficient power to run the lamp for up to 16 hours per day. The system can even be adapted for applications other than roadside illumination, such as shore based navigation systems, cctv and other novel uses.
