Saving energy at Lidl
IRISH cleantech firm Airsynergy together with Lidl announced the installation of ground-breaking Intelligent Smart Poles (ISPs) in Drogheda.
The ISPs are the first of their kind to run off wind and solar power, bringing an off-grid lighting solution to Ireland. They have been developed and patented by cutting edge Irish cleantech firm Airsynergy, which is headquartered at Dublin Airport.
The ISP looks and works like a normal street light, but it is a hybrid smart pole that uses wind and solar energy to continuously power itself off-grid. The result is reliable, renewable lighting with Drogheda leading the way in this type of energy installation in Ireland. As well as the Drogheda installation, the Airsynergy ISPs have recently been installed in the US and Germany.
In an effort to introduce more green aspects to their stores, Lidl has installed two of the cutting-edge ISPs in the carpark of their recently reopened Drogheda outlet.
The installations ensure the carpark continues to be well-lit for shoppers during late hours.
