Sustainable Street Lighting

Dedicated to innovative technology and ways to improve the sustainable use of natural resources, Hiway Environmental introduces the first Eolgreen hybrid street lighting system in Australasia and the Pacific.

A breakthrough in self-sufficient energy technology, the Eolgreen hybrid streetlight is a combined wind and solar lighting system that ensures entirely autonomous operation.

In other energy producing street lighting systems, power generation often stops as the solar input is not sufficient to support continuous or ongoing operation during periods of cloudy or poor weather. By relying on wind to continue operation, the hybrid can generate power with wind strength at just 1.7 metres per second. Traditionally, most other wind generation systems require at least 3 to 4 metres per second. This low speed wind generation capability is the first of its type in the world.

Surplus energy created by the streetlight is stored for ongoing consumption of the light, or pushed back into the grid. The light has many possible uses and offers possibilities in remote locations where hard-wired power connection is impractical or expensive.
