Signify’s solar and hybrid-solar streetlights reduce carbon emissions while leveraging the most cost-efficient energy source: the sun. Solar streetlights don’t need to be “plugged in”, so they aren’t governed by existing electric infrastructure or municipal network. That gives us the freedom to install lighting where it is needed, improving safety for citizens in remote areas.
This proved to be exceptionally helpful in Himamalayan city, Philippines, when typhoon Odette hit. The cluster of Signify's solar streetlights became the city's center of deployment as it was the only place with light. They were a powerful resource for disaster preparedness and keeping the community safe.
