Why Solex Energy Services

Solex was formed in 2004 and has rapidly become the world leader in solar outdoor lighting. Solex has offices around the globe from the USA to Africa and China. We are the world leader for solar powered lights for highways, streets, parking lots, pathways, and other lighting applications that function independently of the electrical grid. Reliability, security and safety, as well as little maintenance are the greatest benefits of Solex solar lighting. No other solar lighting company in the world has installed as many solar street lights or as many large projects as Solex.

Along with these benefits there is the ever-important and ever-present issue of the environment.  Solex prides itself on being a green and eco-friendly company that provides viable alternative energy products that help to reduce the global carbon footprint.  Our products have been developed to provide clean and independent solar power for applications such as water pumping, village home systems, and telephones.

We not only provide reliable solar powered lighting, but can provide other power systems where no conventional electric energy is available. Our systems provide a safer and more secure environment, extending hours for learning, commercial and social activities, and the general well-being of people throughout the world.

In summary, we provide wireless, renewable energy solutions satisfying needs for safety, security and illumination in an environmentally friendly manner.

Large turnkey projects are a Solex specialty. Deploying highly skilled personnel using the latest equipment in the industry, including heavy-duty installation trucks with bucket lifts, heavy-duty trucks with scissor lifts and working platforms, excavators, compressors, jackhammers, concrete mixers, steel concrete casting formworks etc. Solex is able to deliver turnkey projects in record time.

Solex, with its wealth of experience in implementation and execution, handles all aspects of its projects from site survey to installation.  Overseeing and conducting the excavation and casting of concrete bases, mounting the solar powered streetlights (manufactured by Solex) on galvanized steel poles exclusively manufactured for Solex to our exacting specifications and according to strict European standards ensures that our process from manufacture to supply and finally installation and commissioning is 100% supervised by us from beginning to end.

To date, Solex has installed close to eight thousand solar powered streetlights in Nigeria on dual carriage ways within and outside cities, on oil tank farms, private estates and residences including the farm/residence of the former President Of Nigeria, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo. Some of the larger Solex projects include a single road of 10.8 km (certified to be the longest road in the world lit solely by solar powered streetlights) in Yenagoa, the capital city of Bayelsa state in Nigeria. Similarly, Oghara in the state of Delta has 1550 solar powered streetlights installed by Solex. This is the largest solar powered street lighting installation in any one location in the world. Rivers state Nigeria however has more Solex solar powered streetlights than the 2 previously mentioned states combined. Further Solex solar lighting projects are presently on going in all 3 states including the country’s capital Abuja.

Having firmly established itself in West Africa, Solex is expanding and taking on projects in other parts of the world, including China, the Middle East, Latin America and other parts of Africa.

Solex systems provide unmatched convenience, reliability and efficiency. Each Solex light has its own “power plant” – so you don’t depend on far away generating stations, transmission lines, substations, switches and transformers. Since each solar light operates autonomously, every light is programmed through its own control system, to turn on and off as needed. In the unlikely event that an individual solar street light fails, no other lights are affected. Solar systems outperform traditional wired systems hands-down. In a solar installation, initial costs are incurred for the self-contained energy collection and storage system. But after that, the energy itself is free! When compared to the traditional system’s cost for cable, trenching, transformers, and construction – plus electric bills continuing forever – the solar system’s advantages can be dramatic and immediate.
