Sidewalk lighting:
Just in time for the start of school, Yonas, together with Florian and Jürgen, installed sidewalk lighting from the city of Memmingen for the Volkratshofen Elementary School.
So that the children don't have to walk to school in the dark.
The two solar-powered streetlights each consist of the following components:
- Solar Module Phaesun Sun Plus 200_5
- Battery AGM Phaesun Sun Store 125
- Solar Charge Controller Phocos CIS-N-MPPT 85/15
- Remote Control Unit Phocos CIS CU
- Streetlight Element LED Phaesun High Light 15 W 130/86 X
- Street Lighting Pole 5m

Our new pico pv lighting: Sun Shine:

Sun shine has been released by verasol. The combination of LED light and battery pack as well as an incredible number of functions make the Sun Shine essential in many areas of life. Sun Shine finds its way as a luminous torch, serves as a reading and table lamp with different intensities, wakes up the attention with very eye-catching warning flashing and creates a good atmosphere from disco to candlelight dinner with different colour effects. Sun Shine can be recharged with a small solar panel completely independent of the mains or a USB plugin power supply. In addition, smartphones and any USB devices can be charged with the integrated battery.

Goodbye Nico:

At the end of September we said goodbye to Nico. He has actively supported us in the camp during the last months.
Many thanks for that! The whole Phaesun team wishes you all the best for your future.
