Grid connected solar street light

Solar Street Lighting

Connected to the grid

The solar street lighting poles in this project light up the most innovative and sustainable road in the Netherlands. These Soluxio solar light poles in this project are grid-connected, which means that the renewable solar energy generated by the cylindrical solar modules is fed back into the grid. So during daytime the light pole feeds energy into the electricity grid, while at night they withdraw energy to light the road.

The installed Soluxio light poles have one more interesting feature: the solar light poles are the first crash-friendly solar light poles in the world, with a 100NE3 rating.

The crash-friendly design results in a reduced chance of injuries after a collision with the light pole. Additional options like for instance a wood finish is also possible for the Soluxio exclusive solar lights. Together with our world-class partners, FlexSol’s engineering department can provide the highest-quality and most durable solar street light solution which will fit your project in the best possible way.

Soluxio solar street lighting

The most sustainable road

A total of 22 innovations are applied during the renovation of the N211, which have resulted in the first CO2-negative road. In total, 13.000 ton of CO2 will be saved. Examples of applied innovations are a ground-coupled heat exchanger, bamboo signage, tiles made from geopolymers, environmental-friendly asphalt, and of course the Soluxio grid connected solar street lighting. All these innovations together make the N211 the most sustainable road in the Netherlands.

According to the Province of South-Holland, this project sets the new standard for all future roads in the county. The ambitious goal is to be entirely carbon-neutral by 2050 as far as mobility concerns. We believe that energy neutral lighting will play a key role in realizing this ambition. And we hope to contribute to achieving these goals for many years to come!
