Smart solar parking lot lighting in Tilburg city center, 100% easy to move
The Soluxio smart solar parking lot lighting is the first off-grid, autonomous solar street lighting in Tilburg, the Netherlands. The smart solar lights use sustainable solar power for the lighting of parking areas and parking lots. Eliminating expensive trenching of electric wires during installation results into cost savings. Furthermore, fast and easy installation of the Soluxio solar light makes the Soluxio very cost and time efficient.
The smart solar parking lot lighting columns installed in Tilburg are 10m (33ft) tall. They have an exclusive wood look finish and are easy to remove and re-install. Also, each smart solar light pole has over 500 Wp of FlexSol’s cylindrical solar modules. This gives it plenty of power to light the entire Besterd square with only two solar light poles. The Soluxio solar parking lot lighting use an unique modular design. This makes it possible to install the five cylindrical solar modules. Consequently resulting in a total installed power of >500Wp for these solar lights.
The Municipality of Tilburg was looking for an easy to remove and re-install lighting solution. This is because the Besterd square is yearly used for an annual fair. As a result of this the solar light poles need to be removed temporarily. This project is a good example of how smart solar lighting can be used in a city. Also, smart solar street lighting plays an important role in cities of the future. The Soluxio solar light columns generate their own energy and can serve as a charging station for smartphones, laptops, electrical vehicles or bikes. Therefore, these two Soluxio smart solar street lights play an important role in the city of Tilburg.
