Sunna Design brings solar lighting adapted to the extreme climatic conditions of the Colombian island of San Andrés in the Caribbean Sea.
San Andrés is a Colombian island located in the Caribbean Sea, off the coast of Nicaragua. Known for its white sand beaches, palm trees and coral reefs, it is also the site of extreme weather events, including category 5 hurricanes. The tropical climate of San Andrés is one of the constraints of the island in terms of urban development, which nevertheless seeks ecological solutions to extend its lighting network.
EEDAS called on Sunna Design and its local partner to light a road with a median strip. The road was already built, paved, and did not have an electrical grid, so the operational costs of connecting to the traditional grid would have been very high.
Sunna Design proposed 24 iSSL Maxi Area solar streetlights to meet all the constraints presented by the San Andres Island project. Installed on the central median, they allow to light both sides of the road thanks to two LED modules.
Because the Colombian island is exposed to strong winds, salty and humid environment, Sunna Design solar street lights were the best choice, as their robustness makes them resistant to even the most extreme weather conditions.
In only two days, the cement mounting bases were installed. Three weeks later, after the cement had dried, it took only one day to install the poles and luminaires. Solid, reliable and inexpensive, Sunna Design’s solutions met EEDAS’ specifications!

After completing several projects that have met all the expectations of both residents and operations managers, the municipality of Valencia, Spain, and Sunna Design continue their successful collaboration on the solar street lighting of the city. The Ministry of Territorial Policy, Public Works, and Mobility did not hesitate to contact Sunna Design’s teams to […]
In 2019, Sunna Design partnered with Congo Energy on a large-scale solar lighting project in the city of Lubumbashi. Through the installation of over 200 solar street lamp units in one of the biggest cities of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the project has contributed to the revival of public spaces while integrating […]
Between 2019 and 2021, in collaboration with Schneider Electric, and the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), over 130 Sunna Design’s iSSL Maxi Road solar streetlights were installed for a solar public lighting project in Tapachula, Mexico. This country faced two key challenges: a strained social context, partially related to migration flows, and […]
The City of Tournefeuille, west of Toulouse, has recently created an additional cycle route in its municipality, with the aim of improving the network of its cycle paths and in particular to connect them to the city’s high school. In order to carry out this project and in coherence with its energy and ecological […]
