    Japanese electronics company Kyocera (Kyocera) in collaboration with a Brazilian engineering company recently, funding for local authorities in Rio de Janeiro a seventy-three km road project provides solar lighting.
    Kyocera has been for the 3.2MW DC project over four thousand three hundred solar lights, it is expected to generate about 2.8GWh PV annually. Each kit includes a 150W LED streetlight lamp, three Kyocera KD250 solar modules, controllers, photovoltaic cell (light sensor), support structure and four 240Ah / 12Vcc lead-acid batteries.
    Soter local engineering companies in the past two years, Arco Metropolitano do Rio de Janeiro installation of lighting equipment, which is a connection to Rio five major road projects started in 2009. According to Kyocera's statement, one of the main objectives of the infrastructure projects by reducing the import and export costs and help stimulate economic development in the region. The Kyocera --Soter the road network project will cover about one hundred forty-five half the total road distance.
    Sergio Beninca president of Kyocera Solar do Brasil, he said that the streetlight project emphasizes the company's commitment "in rural areas to help solar solutions." Beninca went on to say that the project is independent of the power grid, will help local, low-income families, will not exceed the burden of their existing power networks. Kyocera office in Brazil in the mid-1970s.
    A spokesman for Kyocera told PV-Tech said in an interview, lighting solutions using lead-acid batteries provide Johnson and Moura. The battery is directly connected to the solar controller, storage generated during the day. Once the photocell detects light levels drop, you need to turn on the LED lights.
    According to the spokesman, the system can store electricity and lighting for three days without sunlight conditions. In addition, the spokesman said, is different from the more intensive application of off-grid solar plus storage, lighting equipment will not need to add diesel power, and use the "100% solar energy stored in the battery."
