Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Schneider Electric has announced the introduction of a new range of innovative energy efficient maintenance-free Solar Streetlights popularly known as Villaya.

Speaking at the unveiling of the products to a select group of customers in Lagos, Schneider Electric’s Field Marketing and Access to Energy Manager, Anne Ezeh 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” she said.

According to her, in addition to its Smart Management System, the Villaya Solar Streetlights offer unrivalled heat resistance.

She further stated that the product has a 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,” she added.
