The technology isn’t new, but the design is
A young entrepreneur from the village of Beilen in Drenthe has found a gap in the market for sustainable lamp posts- the collapsible masts are completely durable and can be used along highways and at events.
Lars Wonder, owner of LW Techniek, is repackaging existing technology in a new design: “it is completely low-emission,” Wonder explains. According to the young entrepreneur, the concept is not necessarily new, but it is not yet widely used, reports RTV Drenthe.
The ‘invention’ is a traditional extendable light pole that is equipped with a solar panel and a battery. “I wanted to work on the environment a bit, because things have to be done differently,” says Wonder. “Then we came across this one,” he says, pointing to a sleek steel-cased light pole.
The lamp posts are not yet the main focus of Wonder’s company, but he would like to see that change. In the coming period he wants to make them more widely known. “They are not only intended for events, but also for the construction industry and the highways,” he says. In addition to lighting, the Beiler entrepreneur is also broadening his range with camera surveillance- a dystopian eco-nightmare.
“My goal is actually to sell this and to conquer the market with it. In the sustainable world,” he concludes, humbly.
