Slough Council Install Our Spectrum Solar Lighting Column

Updated: Jan 29

The installation in the Foxborough Ward, lighting pathways between the community and local transport hubs and various amenities, is a trial, with a view to rolling out more new solar lighting installations in the future in order to save future energy consumption costs and reducing the Councils carbon footprint further.

The ground works incorporated the Krinner screw as a foundation avoiding concrete contamination in an open space setting. Eight columns were installed and commissioned in only two days.

The columns were supplied with motion sensors allowing the lights to be dimmed through the night, reducing unnecessary light pollution and minimising the affects on neighbouring habitats.
