Solar street lamps for public lighting of the greenways

 

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 commitments, the City Hall, through the intermediary of the Departmental Union of Energy in the Haute-Garonne region, turned to Sunna Design’s solar solutions and their lighting system which is efficient, practical, and in line with the new challenges of urban development.

The practical advantages of solar lighting for a cycle path

 

After creating a cycle path linking the Hauts de Tournefeuille area to the Quéfets area, the City Hall immediately addressed the issue of lighting, the path being used daily by high school students, runners and walkers. The lighting project was entrusted to the Departmental Union of Energy in the Haute-Garonne region, which itself selected the Citeos company for the intervention.

 

For these 800 meters of track, a dozen of solar street lamps for the UP2 range were deployed. Laura Dintilhac, Business Manager at Citeos, testifies to the satisfaction of her teams: “The ease of intervention was really appreciated by the field teams, which allowed the municipality to have a safe installation for our teams, an installation without discomfort for the residents, and finally a quick installation that allowed us to put the concrete path to use before the beginning of the school year.”

 

Rather than opting for a traditional lighting system involving heavy civil works, the desire here was to cause as little trauma as possible on the path by turning to autonomous lighting. With its solar street lamps made in southwest France, which can be installed in a few minutes on any type of ground without damaging the existing structure, Sunna Design appeared as the ideal partner for this project.

 

The project was coordinated by Occirep, Sunna Design‘s local representative.

A coherent greenway project from end to end

 

The City of Tournefeuille cares about the well-being of its 28.000 inhabitants as well as about the economic and ecological impact of its decisions. As Dominique Fouchier, the City Mayor points out, the public lighting project of the Valette Haut path could only take into account the concerns that drive his teams: “We have been committed to the issue of energy, control of consumption and production for about 15 years, with the prospect of controlling expenses and reducing our carbon footprint.”

 

Powered by a clean and renewable energy, Sunna Design’s autonomous streetlights are the ally of greenways. These non-motorized traffic zones cross natural spaces where solar lighting is particularly welcome to help respecting the surrounding biodiversity. The presence detector integrated into Sunna Design’s solar street lamps allows delivering the right amount of lighting, for the safety and comfort of users of the path and the tranquility of the fauna and flora. The Bluetooth application of the street lights also allows for great control of public lighting with a precise monitoring of energy performance.

 

The inhabitants of Tournefeuille have widely expressed their satisfaction for the creation of this greenway, both from the point of view of the cycling layout and the installation of solar street lamps, a virtuous lighting solution in all respects.
