The conversion of solar energy into electrical power requires an electronic device known as a solar cell, which paired with the limitations of batteries and storage of power, wasn’t widely adopted due to its high cost and low efficiency. Until very recently, solar technology could not compete with conventional fossil fuel energy and was therefore hindered from being utilized in applications such as lighting.

Thankfully the situation has changed and in recent years solar energy technology has seen rapid advancements in efficiency and reductions in cost, making it one of the leading choices in clean electricity generation.

This is great news for the lighting industry who have helped lead this innovation. The possibilities available to engineers and designers has meant solar panels are becoming better integrated into lighting systems, creating unique solar light poles and illuminated bollards that represent the future of exterior lighting.

Ligman has developed a line of vertically integrated solar poles as well as a selection of bollards with integrated solar panels. All of these products and information regarding our solar product offerings, can be found on our NEW solar lighting website.
