Solar lighting: a fast growing market

10 reasons why you should choose solar lighting / Thursday, January 23rd, 2020

Delivering lighting solutions, that’s good. Delivering environmentally responsible and sustainable solutions — that’s even better! The solar streetlight has a bright future. It’s proving a compelling choice for a growing number of governments, who are also promoting it. Indeed, the support of these influencers is having a real impact on the solar lighting market. As cities around the world continue to develop and expand, more and more solar lighting projects are happening.

Fonroche Lighting is going even further by offering governments a complete one-stop solution, from initial consultancy to financing arrangements. We’re here to turn your project into reality!

Solar lighting impresses governments

Growing demand for street lighting

Around the world, cities are going ‘smart’ — keen to operate more efficiently, leverage the power of new technologies and be more ecologically sustainable. How do you recognize a smart city? They’re building new road infrastructure, opening up natural spaces, introducing cleverly designed street furniture and making streetwise use of solar power.

Becoming smarter also means adopting the highest standards of public safety and security. And here, the contribution of public lighting shouldn’t be overlooked. But how do you ensure the right level of lighting, exactly where it’s needed, without driving up energy costs, while staying true to the green image these smart cities are eager to convey?

One solution stands apart from all others: off-grid solar lighting. Entirely powered by sunlight, with no cabling, it’s quick to install and more cost efficient than grid-tied technology. The solar lighting market is growing rapidly, thanks to the lower cost of components, burgeoning demand for road lighting and the support of governments. Various companies in the solar lighting sector are expanding internationally, chief among them Fonroche Lighting.

2020 is already shaping up to be our busiest year yet, with a lot of road and urban lighting projects in the pipeline, and it’s only the start of this phenomenon. In the next few years, smart cities will be lit entirely by solar solutions — and cars will fly!
