Take a look at the world’s first stand-alone solar lamp post! The new solar-powered Spiritlighting column can harvest electricity during the day to light up the streets at night. The studio behind the design, Kaal Masten, says the light post can be entirely powered by the sun, and it doesn’t have to be connected to the grid – so it could bring street lighting to areas without access to electricity.

Kaal Masten‘s solar lamp post can reach up to 18 meters in height, and the modular design can be tailor-made to suit a variety of environments and lighting needs. Masten say that Spirit is the most sustainable form of public lighting available.

Spirit has taken about three years to develop, and it was launched earlier this week during the Public Spaces Day in Expo Houten. The first columns will soon be installed at the TU/e in Eindhoven.

    This is not the first, in fact this is a copy of a patent product from a company where I worked. The design as it is as some thermal issues, and the energy prodution isn\’t the best. There\’s already some instalations made by this company, with very sucessuful results.

    All it needs is some barbed wire to discourage thieves and you’re all set.
