SOLAR LIGHTS LINKED TO THE LoRaWAN GATEWAY
Orca Solar Lighting supplied a custom lighting solution for the 1300+ car park area at Eat Street Northshore. Fifty-four Vertex® solar lighting systems, on 10m high relocatable poles, are integrated into the Northshore LoRaWAN™ Smart City IoT network. This enables remote access control, autonomous light level scheduling and real-time performance monitoring. The autonomous light level scheduling allows the lights to adjust to a high level (Category P11A) on the weekends and medium levels (Category P11B) throughout the week, remotely monitored over the internet. The relocatable infrastructure means the technology can be cost effectively moved and used at other sites in the future. This project provides significant cost savings and flexibility with lighting infrastructure.
ELECTRIC VEHICLE (EV) FAST CHARGERS
Two fast-charging Electric Vehicle (EV) stations are located in the public car park located at 257-281 MacArthur Ave. One station, managed by Yurika, is close to the Northshore River Room Cafe and Riverside Park. The other, the Tesla EV charger, is outside the Northshore Tennis Park. The Yurika managed fast-charging station is part of the Queensland Electric Super Highway (QESH) stretching from Cairns to Coolangatta and from Brisbane to Toowoomba. Not only is this station the busiest on the network, the chargers are part of the world’s longest EV charging state network, providing:
– Two 50kW DC chargers, one user at a time
– One 22kW AC charger, two vehicles simultaneously
– EV top-ups that cost 20 cents per kilowatt hour.
