Solar Streetlight Concept by Vinaccia Integral Design
Fusing nature and technology, designers over at Vinaccia Integral Design haveconceptualized the Solar Tree – an innovative street lighting systemthat gets powered by renewable solar energy. The Solar Trees are atribute to the energy and beauty of Mother Nature.
The tree-shaped structures have six branches, each of which isequipped with monocrystalline silicon solar cells that generate up to100W of clean electrical power. Since the panels are mounted atdifferent angles, they help in generating a constant energy output. Theelectricity generated by the system is stored in onboard battery packsthat can power the streetlight for up to four days without sun exposure.
The “trunk” of these solar trees is crafted from lightweightaluminum and is painted in different range of colors to suit theenvironment. The energy is supplied to a 48W LED lamp that hasbrightness equaling an ordinary 400W halogen lamp.
'EcoFriend' is an environmental blog. The idea behind EcoFriend is simple: to inform and educate consumers who love to possess the latest gadgets and products available in the market and who are also concerned about the environment around them.
