Off-grid power for LED street lighting and signs

Having tested 30 different makes of wind turbines, Kight chose the Leading Edge LE-300 horizontal wind turbine to power its off-grid LED street lights and communication solutions.

Kight’s product range includes LED street lights, multi-point sign lighting and communication solutions designed to operate with hardware, such as LoRaWAN gateways, CCTV, ANPR, WIFI and Smart City Communications.

LE-300 wind turbine

Out of all the wind turbines we trialled, the LE-300 proved to be the only one robust enough for the different wind conditions experienced at our customer installations. Importantly, when combined with solar, the LE-300 was powerful enough to generate the power needed for our wide range of off-grid street furniture all year round.
Dan Goodman, Sales Director at Kight

“We found it easy to work with the Leading Edge team, benefitting from the fantastic customer service and support,” added Dan Goodman. “With green solutions at the heart of what we do, we look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Leading Edge.”

The LE-300 sits on a spindle at the top of the column benefitting from free-flowing air to maximise output. Over the last 12 years, the wind turbine has become renowned for its reliability and durability – precision engineered and manufactured in the UK with only two moving parts, little maintenance is required during the turbine’s long operating life.

The 95W of solar is cleverly sited vertically down the column shaft with more added to increase the power output if required. In this configuration, the unit captures the maximum available solar irradiation during winter days, when the sun is low in the sky.

Installations incorporating these hybrid solar/wind power generation systems can be found across the UK, Croatia and Australia with the marine grade LE-300 particularly suited to coastal locations such as sites in Southend on Sea in the UK.

Customers include local authorities such as Hillingdon Council and Surrey County Council, rail companies, maintenance contractors, construction firms, system integrators, facilities management, lighting consultants, architects and commercial organisations.
