Socio-economic impact of the installation of solar street lights
An efficient public lighting service has numerous benefits, well beyond practical advantages. This is what happened to the residents of a district in Keur Massar, who can now take advantage of the full potential of their facilities.
Sunna Design’s solar solutions were rolled-out in an area where a mosque, a playground and some shops lacked public lighting. Thanks to these street lamps, the neighborhood’s inhabitants rediscover life at night, having the opportunity to go safely to the mosque as well as to use slides and acrobatic circuits at any time.
Installing a solar lighting system also has an economic impact. The site preparation, handling and assembly work of the lights created local employment. The shops located in the street around the mosque square can now remain open even after dark, thus generating bigger incomes.
