Din l-Art Ħelwa brings Sustainable Power and Lighting Solution to Għallis Tower

A project to illuminate Għallis Tower, one of the De Redin Towers built in 1658, was recently completed by Din L-Art Ħelwa through the sponsorship and support of Solar Solutions Ltd. and Brighter Solutions Ltd. Since the Tower is off-grid (ie does not have an electric supply) it was decided to adopt a 100% sustainable solution. Solar panels on the roof, which are not visible from the outside, harness solar energy which is then stored in batteries and used at night. This was also made possible by using an efficient LED lighting system both for lighting the tower and for inside lighting.

The down-lighting, as opposed to the more common uplighting both minimize the light pollution and enabled Din l-Art Ħelwa to complete this installation with minimal impact on the Tower and its surroundings.   Din l-Art Ħelwa holds the Tower in Guardianship and hopes this initiative will further embellish the coast road at night and increase the enjoyment of this historic monument as an iconic landmark.
