We were recently awarded the contract to install an Off Grid Street Lighting system for a local college to be used as an outdoor lab for their students in the Engineering Department. Due to the many advantages of these light poles we are seeing more and more of them being installed by municipalities and commercial and industrial clients and the college wants to ensure their students are familiar with the technology when they graduate. I documented the install and thought it may be of interest to our readers to see how easy the poles are installed.
Assemble the Pole and Mount the Hardware:
For this project we chose the sectional steel pole, which is a 35’ galvanized steel pole that fits together by sliding each successively smaller section over the lower section. This is the same process they use for those giant light poles along major highways. The pole arrives on a standard skid and can easily be assembled by two people with a block of wood and a sledgehammer.
Once the pole is assembled, we mounted the attachment arms, solar panel, wind turbine and LED light.
As you can see the process is very simple and the pole was installed and running in less than a day.
