Following the first launch in India this year, Signify introduced philips sunstay , an integrated solar street lamp that will be launched in Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Vietnam and africa, and its innovative solar sparkle Philips LifeLight.
"Solar-powered lighting systems, which are one of the fastest growing and most sustainable segments of public lighting, make a significant difference in rural areas and constitute a much safer alternative compared to fuel-using lighting systems. Almost 7 percent of the carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere in the Middle East is caused by lighting systems. Solar lighting is much more efficient in terms of energy saving."
Combining solar panel, fixture, charging controller and battery in the same unit, Philips SunStay is compact, easy to install and maintain… SunStay reduces the costs of laying cables as well as reducing its carbon footprint and capital and operating costs. Providing lighting between 2,000 and 3,000 lumens and with a high efficiency of 175 lm/W, SunStay is more efficient than existing solar street lamps on the market.
