solartonic™ has created an innovative, off-grid LED lamp pole with an integrated solar and battery power system. The autonomous off-grid solar lighting system, solarlume™, is an LED lamp post that combines solar and battery technology to harvest, store, and utilize solar power. The technology includes solarap™, a patent pending, omni-directional solar module technology,as well as smartadapt™, a proprietary intelligent monitoring and control system that optimally manages both the lighting output and battery life performance. The solarlume™ system can be applied to a wide range of area lighting applications such as parks, walkways, cycling paths, parking lots, street lights, security fencing, and major roadways.

NextEnergy recognized the distinct characteristics of solartonic’s lighting system, and helped the company commercialize the technology through our matchmaking services. With NextEnergy’s support, solartonic collaborated with four companies to develop its product. Additionally, NextEnergy is currently demonstrating the technology at the NextEnergy Center.

NextEnergy’s team is great to work with. Few organizations understand what we’re about and trying to do, and back that up with coherent expertise and the right level of support.
