About

A solar powered street lighting system providing internet connectivity that improves urban safety

CANTELA is continuously developing a smart solar street lighting system that provides internet connectivity, access to clean energy and better lighting to areas where these may not be readily available, all while minimizing cost and maximizing efficiency. This system allows us to provide three services to communities all at once, while providing the opportunity to use the combination of access to the internet and electricity to deploy other technologies to areas which would be impossible for them to reach otherwise
