Solar path lights
Lighting pathways and bike-ways with stand-alone solar can save capital costs and total lifecycle costs by eliminating the requirement to trench and cable for long distances, as well as the elimination of ongoing power costs.
Orca Solar Lighting has several ranges that perform well for Australian pathway lighting standards such as AS/NZS 1158 3.1 2020 PP2, PP3, PP4 and PP5. Orca Solar Lighting can provide complementary lighting designs to determine the best product for your project, whilst ensuring horizontal and vertical lux levels comply as do the glare and light pollution requirements.

Pathway lighting standards update.
In February 2020, the relevant pathway lighting standards (AS/NZS 1158 3.1) were updated to the 2020 version. A summary of the changes as follows:
|PP2||P1 (Reduced minimum Eh and Ev, Enhanced uniformity requirement)|
|PP3||P2 (Reduced average and minimum Eh and Ev and Enhanced uniformity requirements)|
|PP4 (Vertical requirements removed where bollards are used)||P3 (Reduced average and minimum Eh and Ev and Enhanced uniformity requirements)|
|PP5 (Vertical requirements removed where bollards are used)||P4 (Reduced Ev and Enhanced uniformity requirements)|
|n/a||P5 has been removed|
With the popular use of sensors and dimming with solar lighting, the pathway lighting standards stipulate that, for the lighting to comply to the designated subcategory, it must meet or exceed the necessary lighting level from the lowest level of light emitted throughout the night. In other words, if the lighting levels dim to below the designated light levels, it does not comply to Australian standards.
