Solar street lighting

photo-5Couldn’t help but notice this as I was out and about today. There are two of these on the back road between Little River and Geelong, plus a third one without the black counterweight.  I buzzed Geelong council to get the low-down, but they told me it was a Powercor installation.  I checked Powercor’s website for information, but came up empty handed.  So, I turned to the ever-faithful You Tube where I found a short video by a company that now seems to be out of business…but it did provide some explanation of the street light through a similar example elsewhere in Geelong.

Anyone know any more about these?
