    about the installed solar luminaires

    by Signify. As we have many hours of sunshine throughout the year this is a very effective and functional solution for those areas on our island that are not connected to the power grid. Additionally, the lights have such an aesthetic design that they seamlessly blend in with our island’s natural landscape.”


    -Fotis Mangos, Mayor of the Municipality of Leipsoi

    Customer challenge


    The island of Leipsoi, in the Greek Dodecannese, needed to introduce night-time street and area lighting to a number of communities, including the childrens’ playground area, to improve safety and useability. As with any island, imported energy is expensive, but an additional challenge was that the island’s electricity grid does not always follow the street layout, making mains connection difficult and expensive.

    The right light


    SunStay solar luminaires combine the photovoltaic array, charge controller, battery and LED light source in a single, compact housing, making for an elegant and unobtrusive luminaire that is completely autonomous from the external electricity grid. Installation is thus inexpensive and straightforward with no requirement for trenching, cable runs and electrical connections.
