Habaisha village comes back to life thanks to solar lighting

 

Sunna Design responded to the Zayed Sustainability Prize’s humanitarian effort to provide solutions to areas lacking essential resources. Habaisha in Egypt is one of the selected places, and it is in this village without efficient access to electricity that solar street lights have been installed.

A village in the Asyut region without public lighting

 

In Upper Egypt, the majestic city of Asyut is built along the Nile fertile valley, surrounded by millennia-old monuments. Nearby, Habaisha village lives a whole different reality. Its 3500 residents are deprived of street lights along the main road, only access route to the village for the whole community and location of houses and essential shops.

 

After dark, inhabitants can’t interact anymore, playing outside becomes dangerous for children, and stores are forced to close due to the lack of illumination.

A humanitarian initiative supported by the Zayed Sustainability Prize

 

Sunna Design’s street lights were installed in Habaisha, in the frame of the 20by2020 humanitarian project. United Arab Emirats initiated this action through ZSP, an organization rewarding sustainability solutions. In 2018, Sunna Design won the ZSP Prize, becoming since then one of their trusted partners.

 

ZSP already contacted Sunna Design on other occasions, and reaffirmed their trust in their solutions to bring light to the village’s main road, lacking of a proper grid to connect to public lighting. Over 50 autonomous iSSL+ street lights were installed, their high-performance LED lights allowing an energy-efficient illumination of the road.

Everyday life made easier for the residents of Habaisha

 

The deployment of the iSSL+ streetlights is a real life-changer for the residents of Habaisha, resulting in social, economic and environmental benefits. Residents can socialize again and children can play safely. The village supermarket and pharmacy can open later and have already seen their revenues increase.

 

By focusing on solar equipment, the 20by2020 initiative is also focusing on a sustainable street lighting solution that is consistent with the values of the ZSP, a goal achieved through the technological expertise of Sunna Design.
