Solar Security Lights for a Remote Setup Provide Convenient and Economical Lighting.

Providing security to setups be they public or private is an important consideration in the current times. The cost of normal grid connected street and security lighting is many times more expensive than comparable solar powered solutions when wiring layout, digging, trenching and other aspects are taken in to consideration. This is specially true for larger installations requiring more cable runs.

Based on the same principle the following remote site in a high altitude environment saw the security flood lights come up in just two days including installation & commissioning. With the economical rates and high quality components the said installation stands to achieve its ROI in about 18 months time.

Another Public Park in Rawalpindi Goes (Real) Green through Solar Street & Flood Lights.

The unabated grid failures & planned load shedding does no good to public parks as well as the public frequenting them. As such the older HPS lamps keep going off all the time and come back to full power only after a good few minutes re-strike time. This too only happens at parks equipped with a backup generator, for the less privileged parks darkness and fading public figures are the order of the day!

But worry no more – Sharif International is around as it has been for the last so many years to clear out the dark patches across the nations expanse. Here’s how it was done – HPS lamps were replaced by energy efficient InductoLVD® lamps based solar street & flood lights and a solar PV system based on high efficiency mono modules along with complete wiring & poles was put in place.

18 Solar Lighting Masts for Jinnah Park Rawalpindi.

Jinnah Park next to the District Courts Rawalpindi is a very popular destination with the locals and is jam packed even on week days. The frequent load shedding put heavy strain on the backup generators and also posed security issues.

It was therefore decided by the competent authorities to opt for solar lighting masts at prominent places that would stay powered ON despite power outages. Ms. Sharif International due to their extensive experience in the renewables arena were a natural choice.

As of today 4 masts have already been commissioned and are performing their duty faithfully. On top of solar PV benefit, the installed 80Wp InductoLVD® lamp each replaces 400Wp HPS lamp. The actual consumption of these 400W HPS lamps is around 660W, thereby a staggering 460W per lamps has been conserved just by the utilisation of energy efficient lamps. Here’s an ode to the brilliant achievement.
