Irish company airsynergy’s wind and solar powered off-grid Remote Power Unit (RPU) has become the very first renewable hybrid streetlight to be installed in the Caribbean island country of Grenada.

The streetlight is positioned at the highest traffic area on the island at an area known as the Sugar Mill Roundabout — a key intersection that opens all traffic to and from the airport and the university to the center of St George’s and the business district. “This is really the ideal location to allow people to see it and talk about it,” explained Ryan. The off grid RPU powers an 80-watt LED bulb with inbuilt battery storage lasting up to five days.
