High Quality Solar Powered LED Street Lighting That Stays On During Loadshedding in South Africa

BEKA Schréder has supplied the LED solar lighting highmast solution for the Steelpoort community in the Limpopo Province. With this new lighting installation, the community benefits from security lighting even during loadshedding.

The SOLARFLOOD has been installed on three newly erected highmasts in Steelpoort. The masts have been strategically located in high pedestrian traffic areas, such as schools, community centres, clinics and taverns, which ensures safer transit of the community especially during times affected by loadshedding.

The SOLARFLOOD is a South-African designed and manufactured solar lighting highmast solution for outdoor open area and rural applications and provides a high performing, robust option for off-grid solar lighting requirements.

Combined with the OMNISTAR-MINI luminaire, the SOLARFLOOD provides a reliable lighting solution with a high Ingress Protection level (IP 66) that withstands high ambient temperatures. The OMNISTAR-MINI range is a sustainable off-grid performer with a superior lumen/watt ratio.

The photovoltaic energy conversion is optimized by highly efficient Monocrystalline solar module technology. This, in conjunction with our Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charging system and our lithium battery technology, provides a state-of-the-art quality system, offering the required system autonomy and providing a long-lasting solution to operate in any of our very challenging African environmental conditions.

BEKA Schréder locally develops and manufactures sustainable LED lighting products, designed and suitable for localconditions.

We are very proud to be associated with Two Rivers Platinum and Braigan Energy, a division of Braigan Group, in providing a solar LED lighting solution for this project.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
