Solar kits light up North Melbourne’s suburbsAugust 28, 2015
Alert Electrical has used solar light kits to transform a dark and potentially dangerous laneway into a safer route for metropolitan pedestrians. No-one likes to look over their shoulder in fear as they dash along a dark lane to get home at night. But that’s what was happening in this walkway near a train station in Ascot Vale. And our team is delighted to have helped shine some brightness on the gloom with a sustainable solution that produces real safety benefits. In this particular job, our professional team supplied and installed the Solar Light House Kits on five-metre poles along the walkway. The work included excavating footings for the poles and putting rag bolts in a reinforced concrete footing. And the result? Well, the pictures below speak for themselves. Our team’s lighting efforts are helping give pedestrians peace of mind at night. Solar lighting is proving an attractive, cost-effective approach for municipal councils trying to illuminate narrow, dark pedestrian walkways and lanes scattered across the city’s suburbs including North Melbourne. Because they harness the sun’s free power using solar panels, there are no energy bills. They are low maintenance, reliable and can be a cheaper option than fixed wiring lights for the city’s more isolated locations. Many people head for home using trains and other public transport after dark. And then there’s often that trek from the train station to your front door on foot. It can be a nervous walk for many – especially women – and it’s not made easier if there’s a lack of adequate street lighting. A well-lit route goes a long way towards making pedestrians feel safer and more confident. Good lighting also reduces the risk of dangers including assault, robbery and vandalism.
