Numerous applications for solar lighting
The advantages of stand alone solar lighting
Stand alone solar lighting eliminates the need for trenching and cabling. Simply select the site for the light pole and install the footing. There are zero power bills from day one, protecting the owner from steep electricity price rises being experienced in Australia.
Solar lighting is not susceptible to power outages. When cyclone Yasi hit Townsville several years ago and knocked out the power, the only light that could be seen for miles was the solar car park lights at the back of the James Cook University supplied by Orca Solar Lighting.
Outdoor solar lighting is generally well suited to P category (pedestrian) lighting such as minor roads, car parks, walkways & bike ways, jetties & marinas. Solar lighting can be run for more powerful lighting requirements (eg V5) however generally it is not cost effective or capable of operating V3 (Highway or motorway) lighting, as the size of the solar engine would need to be very large.
Ease of purchase
All products offered by Orca Solar Lighting can be purchased through your preferred electrical wholesaler, installer, contractor, or lighting supplier anywhere in Australia, as well as directly from Orca Solar Lighting. The price to the end customer will be the same as wholesale and trade pricing structures are in place.
Local government preferred supplier
All NSW, QLD, SA and NT local government can purchase solar powered lights through the LocalBuy and Local Government Procurement Orca Solar Lighting contracts, eliminating the need to go to tender or obtain three quotes, with peace of mind that they are dealing with a reputable pre-qualified supplier and purchasing solar lighting at the best possible price.
