Courage to change

Photinus is not competing with the traditional, on grid streetlight; it offers rather a valuable endorsement and different solution. We take it as our duty to investigate whether installations of lighting points make ecological and economic sense or not. If these points are given and on grid solutions not economically practicable, Photinus’ self-sustaining, solar outdoor lighting products ensure illumination for the respective area.

Economic efficiency

Economic efficiency is crucial for Photinus. Extensive economical calculations demonstrate the advantages of Photinus lighting systems in relation to traditional, on grid street, way or place lighting. Our products cost less in acquisition and have lower operation costs throughout the whole life span. The competition between ecology and economy is eliminated with these intelligent solutions. Our goal is to enable lighting spots that are incomparable flexible, quickly available, ecological, demanding minimum interventions in nature, insect neutral and supplied by “free” solar energy.

Innovation people solution responsibility

We see light as an important contribution to increasing public safety, enriching quality of life and winning time for mankind.

Thus, we develop, produce and sell energy efficient, self-sustaining, solar outdoor lighting systems. Competition between ecology and economy is hereby eliminated by our intelligent solutions.

We consider the delivery of solar lighting systems for streets and ways as well as customer specific micro solar solutions as socio-political mission especially in continents without light. This mission is completed with the creation of regional jobs and regional value added.

Our products

Innovation is the elementary principle of our company. We see optimal solutions as maximum success. We are clearly pioneers and perceived as well as appreciated as technological market leader within the solar lighting industry.


We see leadership as guidance to success and the optimal unfurling of intellectual, professional and social capacities as major challenge in collaboration with our employees. Hence, we develop self-dependent and responsible personalities able to act independently within given competences and in line with corporate culture. These personalities are finally able to develop creative and special products and services for our customer.

Our employees

Our employees “live” their job and value customer and supplier equally as leading-string of their acting and thinking. Thus they enjoy our highest esteem and endorsement.

We work according to the principles of high performance teams and encounter the goal of flawless work with acceptance, open communication and joint remediation of errors.  


Highest quality of products and services are fundamental to Photinus’ business model. Therefore, we set very high quality standards for suppliers.


Our corporate culture results in a sustainable and earnings-oriented but not profit maximising view. We will do everything necessary using right technologies in order to maximise our contribution to a respectful and conscious treatment of the environment. Further on, we make sure, that all supplying companies have humane working conditions and are finally all aware of our responsibilities.
