Dicky Beach, Caloundra
Greenplate recently supplied and installed 4 x Solar Batten Lights powered off 4 Uni-Solar Laminated Solar Modules. The Solar Batten Lights had to be supplied with a custom colour temperature of 3000k to ensure the light would not effect the sea turtles. The Uni-Solar Laminated solar modules were chosen specifically for vandalism purposes. This type of solar technology can with stand rocks and heavy objects being thrown at them without affecting the panels output. The Solar Batten Lights also incorporate a PIR Sensor meaning the lights will dim after a certain time and when motion is detected re activate to full output to save power.
The sea turtles have used Caloundra beach as a nesting spot for generations and with the incorporation of turtle friendly lighting can continue to do so without being effected. Greenplate have now provided an energy efficient solar lighting solution for local residents to enjoy the facilities after dark without effecting the surrounding ecosystem.
