AE3 Solar LED Street and Car Park Lighting

We are the market leader in solar lighting for streets, car parks and footpaths. We were the first to introduce solar-only permanent street lights to the UK and there are now thousands of units installed nationally. Providing year round, permanent solar street lighting which is simple to install and requires no external electrical power.

The series provides solar lighting for areas such as street lighting, parks and recreation areas, public areas, bus stops and shelters, car parks and perimeters, marinas and harbours and footpaths, amongst others.

Integrated Module

The AE3 is a medium to high power split-type solar street light integrating all components such as the solar panel, outdoor LED, LiFePO4 battery, intelligent controller and PIR sensor together. Such design makes the installation and maintenance easy, saving labour and maintenance costs.

Year round Lighting

The AE3 luminaire is a high-quality, year round, solar powered LED unit providing permanent lighting without the need for external electrical power.

Easy Installation

The lights are simple, quick and economical to install. With no need to dig trenches or install trunking for cables, installation costs can be halved compared to conventional mains power alternatives.

Lighting From Dusk till Dawn

The only light offering detection for a wider range of motion. Our specially-developed smart light controller and Passive Infra Red (PIR) sensor works to ensure the solar LED light lasts from dusk until dawn, even on the darkest days and are proven to operate throughout the UK winter, as tested in Scotland!

Lighting Design Service

Our specialist knowledge of solar lighting design and deployment has helped us to gather feedback from customers and work with manufacturing partners to develop lighting solutions that operate reliably in UK conditions to British Lighting standards.

Can a solar street light be retrofitted to an existing column?

Yes, subject to the column and foundations meeting the appropriate standards. Contact us for the relevant specifications.

Can I monitor my street lights remotely?

Yes, we’re able to offer you access to our Street Lighting portals. A master and then gateways are added to the panels including a sim card for connectivity. The portal will give access to each panel and light connected to the specific setup network. You can see battery soc, generation, lights on or off. You can also put the lights on a time schedule away from their usual UK settings

Can solar street lights, light all roadways?

Our lights can be used on all unadopted roads, but not on adopted roads.

Adopted roads are looked after by councils and maintained accordingly. They also like to use a control system with all street lighting and have it on a set program. Due to the way our PIR’s work they are not effective enough to work on highways due to the speed of vehicles. By the time the car gets detected by the PIR, the light comes on after the car has passed the light.

Do Solar street lights work on a cloudy day?

The latest panel technology means that even on a cloudy day, power will still be generated. The battery has capacity for around 5 consecutive days of n0 solar yield, to cover even the worst periods of UK weather.

Do the solar street lights work in winter?

Yes, we have been installing lights in the UK since 2011 and we have developed the software and knowledge to ensure the lights work consistently up and down the UK.

What light coverage do solar street lights provide?

Our AE6 provides coverage of up to 687m² at a level down to 0.4Lux. This measurement is on the ground and will be on the outer most edge of the light spread. It could be over 10 lux directly below the light but will dissipate the further you go from it. When a lighting design is created it overlaps with light spread from the other lights to give a uniformity.

Can the lights be programmed?

Yes, all of the settings are customisable. The lights will illuminate at dusk. The light intensity at both triggered and no triggered mode can be adjusted based on customer requirements. Additionally the lights can be set to turn off at a particular time if in a residential area.

What’s the battery life expectancy of the Solar Street lights?

2,500 cycles. However, this is not 2,500 days.  Majority of the year (roughly 9 months), the lights do not go thru a full cycle every day. They are expected therefore to last between 4 – 7 years dependent the level and number of full discharges.

What’s the difference between solar lighting and traditional street lights?

Solar lights are entirely off-grid and require no cables or trenches.

What applications are the lights suitable for?

The solar street lights are used across both small and large sites in both commercial and residential settings including housing estates, parks, car parks, seafronts, campuses, hospital estates and military bases.
