Solar street lighting in New Caledonia: Fonroche Lighting lights up Nouméa's city stadium

In New Caledonia, the city stadium in Nouméa now benefits from solar street lighting, an environmentally-friendly and efficient solution implemented by Fonroche Lighting. To improve visibility and use of the pitch, six solar-powered streetlights have been installed around the stadium, providing optimum brightness without the need for a connection to the electricity grid.

Nouméa town council chose Fonroche Lighting for its autonomous solar street lighting solution. Equipped with a battery and a solar system, the streetlights are capable of providing stable, constant lighting at full power, before switching off automatically thanks to custom programming.

This choice reflects the city's commitment to renewable energies and energy autonomy. With this installation, New Caledonia is one step closer to adopting clean, sustainable energies.

Beyond the ecological aspect, solar street lighting offers numerous advantages. It allows extended use of the city stadium, promoting sport and leisure activities, while ensuring the safety of users. What's more, these solar streetlights require very little maintenance, making them an economically viable solution in the long term.

All in all, the installation of solar street lighting at the Nouméa city stadium bears witness to New Caledonia's commitment to sustainable, self-sufficient energy solutions. It's a commendable initiative that not only improves the quality of life of local residents, but also helps to preserve the environment. Fonroche Lighting's expertise in this field makes the company a partner of choice for such projects worldwide.
