Solar lighting

Harrison, D.G. and Mathew, K. (1991) Solar lighting. In: Seminar on appropriate technology for remote communities, 28 August pp. 45-47.


The project was initiated following a request from the Ninga Mia Corporation at Kalgoorlie, who wanted simple and inexpensive solar lighting for their ablution blocks. It was decided to purchase various components from solar energy retailers and assess the most cost effective combination for limited range of applications. The priority was placed on a single light installation for ablution blocks and street lighting, and a two light system for ablution blocks with toilet and laundry facilities.
