Solar Bollards for Roadways

The King Abdullah University of Science and Technology opened in 2009 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Sustainable development is integral to the university’s overall mission to nurture innovation in science and technology, and support research in areas such as energy and the environment that are important to Saudi Arabia, the region and the world. This emphasis on sustainable practices influences KAUST’s research agenda, campus planning, and operations. Because of the university’s location and commitment to sustainability, they are ideal candidates for solar bollards to light roadways on their campus.

In 2010 the university was awarded a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification for their innovative and sustainable architecture. To live into their mission, KAUST sought a solar lighting solution to illuminate the roadways on campus. The end result was the utilization of Fist Light PLB solar series. These solar bollards provide the light needed and are a cost-effective and reliable sustainability option.

PLB Solar Bollard

The self-contained, contemporary design of the PLB series bollard combines with high quality construction and unequaled solar powered performance to make it an excellent fit wherever quality lighting is required.

The PLB series incorporates First Light’s Solar Lighting Controller (SLC) that allows the light to predicatively adapt to its surroundings, providing an unmatched level of lighting performance and reliability. This bollard is ideal for a variety of architectural and commercial pathway applications.
