Schneider Electric introduces innovative solar streetlights in Nigeria

As part of its aim to reduce pressure on the Nigerian national grid, Schneider Electric has announced the introduction of a new range of innovative energy efficient maintenance-free solar streetlights called Villaya.

The latest invention to light up the country was announced by the Field Marketing and Access to Energy Manager, Anne Ezeh, during introduction of the product to a select group of customers at the company’s head office in Lagos.

Speaking further on the unique features of the Villaya Solar Streetlights, she revealed that the product offers sustainable lighting capacity for up to 10 years. “Unlike others, the Villaya Solar Streetlights’ unique integrated concept makes installation very quick and easy because there is no need for trenching, cabling or on site assembling and the advanced LED technology and management system guarantees the lamps can last for up to 10 years,” Ezeh said.

In addition to its Smart Man­agement System, the Villaya So­lar Streetlights offer unrivalled heat resistance, highly efficient LED light engine that provides the best ratio of lumens per watt as well as a unique all-in-one integrated plug and play design, which allows for retrofitting, easy installation and helps to avoid vandalism.

The Villaya Solar Streetlights work by automatically detecting night time conditions through an integrated circuit processor that guarantees full power during the night and graduated reduction of light intensity after four to five hours, to stretch the availability of its lighting service all year long.

On Schnei­der Electric’s commitment towards providing innovative energy solutions, Ezeh stated that, “the Villaya Solar Streetlight is a product solution to promote environmental safety, efficient, renewable, clean and affordable power, even in remote or off-grid areas that require good street lighting and zero electricity bills.”
