Case Study: Outdoor Lights for Elementary School in Marshall Islands
Posted by Becky Johanson in Inspiring Projects.
With 10 years experiences, Greenshine New Energy Co., Ltd. had the opportunity to light up pathways, parks and streets for thousands of people around the world.
In 2013, the company had the pleasure to provide solar outdoor lights to Rairok Elementary School on Marshall Islands.
Located on the Pacific Ocean, half of Rairok's population was comprised of youth. The Marshall Islands enjoys a great sun exposure throughout the year, making it the perfect spot to set up solar street lights systems. However, electricity on the islands is mostly provided by diesel generators a highly polluting energy provider. Using diesel plants is not only polluting, it is also very expensive for communities. That is why the Marshall government grew more interested in renewable energy and invested in commercial solar outdoor lighting.
Setting up solar street lights for the school playground seemed obvious. To ensure a safe place for children to play at night, the school chose to install nine Brighta 40 solar outdoor lighting. Recommended for lightning up pathways, streets or parks, those solar powered street lights are also perfect to illuminate yards. With its underground battery, Brighta Series is a secure street light option to set up in a school. Design with CREE LED lamps, Brighta solar light provides higher brightness than incandescent lamps.
This light allowed Rairok Elementary School to provide children with a safe environment and to save money from electricity bills. The innovative technology of Brighta Serie included a Smart Saving Energy Mode that produced different light intensity depending on the time of the day and the circumstances. The Saving Mode system provides street lamps up to 6 days autonomy.
Greenshine's Solar Outdoor Lighting solutions work on innovative technology to provide Communities with great quality solar street lights for competitive prices and free of maintenance.
