Berrigan Shire Goes Solar CCTV With PowerStack.
Berrigan Shire Goes Solar CCTV – Berrigan Shire Council has partnered with PowerStack Energy to enhance security, lighting and services at multiple locations.
The works involve the installation of PowerStack’s modular solar poles to power lighting, security cameras and wireless charging stations across key sites, including Barooga Adventure Park and the Botanical Gardens, as well as Finlay Park and Railway Park.
For lighting placements, council chose the WE-EF VFL530 architectural luminaires, supplied by Buckford Illumination Group, with security applications using an Axis Communications P3268 LVE Outdoor 8MP Dome with IR and deep learning. The communications device used was a Permacon RAPIDLink managed 4GLTE router.
PowerStack’s innovative off-grid solar system uses vertical glassless solar cells and has been utilized across Australia for projects ranging from wildlife conservation lighting and the prevention of illegal dumping to Wi-Fi network deployment in smart city applications.
“The fully integrated vertical solar poles can be installed in minutes and provide continuous power with a 5-day battery backup, running purely off harvested sunlight,” said PowerStack’s Nathan Giblett.
“This new form of solar removes the need for cabling, trenching and utility supply, saving users tens of thousands of dollars in install and access costs,” Giblett said.
“The design also minimises disruption to communities when developing powered infrastructure and reduces the carbon footprint associated with ongoing utility provision.
“We’re really excited to work with Berrigan Shire Council and looking forward to working on new uses and applications with them to benefit the Berrigan Shire community in future.”

The project, which comprises 32 poles in total, is one of a number of similar projects PowerStack has enabled, working alongside local councils.
Berrigan Shire Council’s Mayor, Cr. Matthew Hannan said the installation would make the community safer.
“This project is part of a staged approach to continue to work towards a safer community for Berrigan Shire,” Hannan said.
“Key areas have been identified as priority due to their popularity and/or history of vandalism. This new way of being able to access this technology will be a huge benefit for our shire.”
