solar LED lighting

Lighting Science Group is partnering with BHP Energy México for the pilot project of installing new FreeLED solar roadway system as a street lighting solution for Mexico City.

The FreeLED solar roadway system uses solar energy as a means of affordable and sustainable roadway illumination particularly for rural and remote regions having limited access to the electric grid.

The initial phase of the installation will see 500 units of the FreeLED system providing street lighting solution to the remote streets of Mexico.

Besides, the FreeLED luminaire system includes an integrated solar panel, battery pack, complete power management system and the self-learning capability to automatically adapt to its operating environment.

It integrates high energy density, solar panels, compact battery cells, and a complete battery management system for efficient installation.

The system provides a minimum of 120 lm/W efficiency which helps to optimize energy utilization from the battery packs with extensive operating time periods.

In addition, the lighting solution is designed for installation in locations that lack stable grid infrastructure, helping to eliminate costs of utilizing grid power.

Two weeks ago, Lighting Science Group has entered into a strategic distribution partnership with the Fastenal Company.

As part of this agreement, Fastenal will warehouse and sell Lighting Science’s innovative LED products and solutions to its vast network of customers.

In another development, Lighting Science Group launched new Vintage Filament Series of LED lamps.

This new LED lamp emits efficient light distribution and comes in many of the traditional, incandescent bulb decorative form factors.

They feature a new design imitating the look of conventional filament-based lamps, providing with a desired shape that have been lacking with many other style LED lamps.
