Lighting the Isle of Wight

The right lighting



Existing 50W SON lanterns in residential streets are being replaced on a one-for-one basis by 13W and 24W Stela lanterns, providing a reduction in installed electrical load of over 50%. In other areas, Philips Luma lanterns have been installed, with Mini Luma lanterns used in areas of outstanding natural beauty. Over 12,000 street lights will have been upgraded by the time the project is complete, with older columns being replaced as well. In addition, some heritage lighting is being replaced with specially manufactured lanterns equipped with Philips optics.


All of the lanterns were selected for their ability to provide the required light distribution with minimal upward light or light spillage. The luminaires will be linked to a Philips CityTouch LightWave central lighting management system that will allow each one to be controlled individually or in groups. The lanterns are connected to the LightWave system using the StarSense Wireless system, via the island’s mobile phone networks.
