Solar Street Lights

It’s about time that we start thinking about renewable energy sources. Solar energy is a pioneer in this form of energy. It is not only limitless, but it also delivers a far more convenient and sustainable source of energy at an extremely low cost.

Scientists are currently developing innovations to make better use of this resource. Solar street lights are one example of such an idea. These are excellent alternatives to traditional grid-powered electricity. Solar street lights are extremely efficient and effective light sources that are made up of components such as battery tanks, poles, photovoltaic modules, and CFL or LED lights. The energy-efficient luminaries along with the utilization of solar power make solar lights a highly economical and environment-friendly option.

Our Solar Street Lights

The entire concept of a solar street lighting system is focused on maximizing energy usage and minimizing energy loss. These solar street lights are not linked to the electricity grid. There is a solar panel that collects solar energy and a power cell that recovers energy. This solar panel is usually attached to the lighting structure or built into the pole itself. This energy is then utilized to power the street lights at night. The system provides a power-saving mode by adapting the automation process. A dark and light sensor provides the automated “ON/OFF” function to the solar street lights so that the solar street lights shine automatically when the surroundings get dark, and it turns off when there is adequate light in the surroundings. On one hand, the solar street lights may be linked via a micro-grid, which is a tiny power grid-primarily utilized for the lights, and on the other hand, these solar street lights can be used as a stand-alone system. Hence due to their unique characteristics and ease of use, Solar Street Lights are becoming increasingly popular in rural areas.

The solar street lights do not have to be illuminated at the same intensity all of the time. The lights that burn with high intensity require more energy than the ones that burn with low intensity. So, by adjusting the intensity of solar street lights, it is simple to save even more energy. A microcontroller is used to implement this auto-intensity control method. In this configuration, the solar street light automatically adjusts its intensity based on the amount of light available. For example, as the sun sets in the evening, the brightness of solar street lights increases. When there is no light intensity after nightfall, the solar street lights stay “ON” in full power until midnight. The intensity of the solar street lights is regulated by passing cars on the road after midnight. That is, the solar street light will only turn “ON” when a car passes by on the way. It will also switch off when the car has crossed the roadway. It is controlled by an infrared sensor.

The main component of these solar street lights is LEDs. An LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a chemical compound that emits visible light when a direct current from a battery is sent through it. LEDs typically have a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. When compared to the HPS (High-Pressure Sodium) fixture used in typical street lights, LED delivers significantly better brightness with lower energy consumption. It even consumes at least half the energy of traditional light. Furthermore, in the case of LED, energy waste in the form of heat is optional. As a result, the bulb used in solar LED street lights saves up to 50% more energy than regular street lights.

Therefore, as you can already see there are many benefits of switching from traditional street lights to solar street light systems.

The energy produced from these solar street lights is renewable hence energy expenses can be reduced. Also because solar street lights are one-time expenditures with a long lifespan, they are preferred in remote regions where regular power cannot reach.

Since the solar street lights don’t have any kind of external wire connection, so the risk of accidents related to electric wires is less in this case. The lightweight design of these solar street lighting reduces the cost of installation. Furthermore, because the solar street lights are weatherproof, they do not require any additional maintenance during the wet season. Solar street lighting is also dustproof. As a result, it may readily survive in places where the dust level is greater than typical without incurring any significant maintenance costs. Even The batteries of solar street lights easily last more than five years, and they have a solid backup for harsh weather situations. Notably, lithium-ion phosphate batteries are the most modern and safest choice for solar street lights.


Still not sure? Here are some answers to the frequently asked questions.
What Advantages do solar street lights offer?
Solar street lights are not connected to the power grid. As a result, running expenditures are kept to a minimum. When compared to traditional street lights, solar street lights require far less maintenance. Since external wires aren't used, the possibility of an accident is reduced. Solar panels generate non-polluting electricity. The individual components of a solar panel system are easily transportable.
Why poles are necessary for solar street lights?
All street lights, especially solar street lights, require strong poles because there are typically components attached on the top of the pole: fixtures, panels, and sometimes batteries. In some recent designs, however, the PV panels and all electronics are built right into the pole. Wind resistance is another consideration.
What are some of the features of solar street lights?
Most solar lights detect external light and turn on and off automatically utilizing the electricity from the solar panel. Solar streetlights are meant to operate at all hours of the night. If the sun is not in the sky for an extended period of time, many can stay lighted for more than one night. Lamps that were not fluorescent or LED were incorporated in older generations. In windy areas, solar lights are usually built with flat panels to better withstand the breezes. Modern designs use wireless technology and fuzzy control theory for battery management.
How does outdoor solar lighting work?
A solar panel, long-life rechargeable battery, LED light, and photoresistor are all included in each solar-powered lamp. Each light solar panel generates electricity, which is used to charge the battery throughout the day. At night, when solar-powered lights stop producing energy, the photoresistor detects the lack of light and activates the battery, which turns the LED light on.
What is solar street light?
Solar street lights are elevated light sources that are powered by solar panels that are either positioned on the lighting structure or built into the pole itself. During the night, the solar panels charge a rechargeable battery, which powers a fluorescent or LED lamp. Solar street lights are powered by solar energy, which is a renewable resource. Solar street lights are made up of photovoltaic cells that absorb solar energy during the day. Solar energy is converted into electrical energy by photovoltaic cells, which is then stored in the battery. The lamp turns on automatically at night, using the electricity previously stored in the battery. The battery is recharged during the day, and the process is repeated every day.
What is the life expectancy of the solar panel and the LED fixture?
The solar panel has a 20-year life expectancy. In fact, it will continue to produce 80% of the power it did on day one. The LED fixture should last 10-12 years.
Do the poles come with anchor bolts?
Yes, the poles include anchor bolts as well as a metal template to ensure precise alignment of the anchor bolts.
What kind of maintenance should be done on solar street lights?
Our lighting system does not require any maintenance. The rain is usually enough to keep the panels clean. If you live in a snowy environment, you may need to brush the solar panels off. However, because of the angle of the solar panel, snow normally melts as the sun rises and the temperature rises.
Will the system work if it is shaded during part of the day?
Sunlight is the source of energy for every system. The system's design will be influenced by any degree of shading during the day. Please inform your solar lighting professional if shadowing is an issue, such as a tree or a system installed on the north side of a building, so we can explore particular design options.
Will the solar lights dim if the battery storage gets too low?
The light's power is designed for full intensity regardless of battery storage. Dimming occurs only if it is a predetermined function set forth and allowed through adaptive lighting settings.
How long will the lights stay on each night?
The lights can be set to work in any way the buyer wants. If the operation is dusk to dawn, the system will turn on at dusk and turn off at dawn, which in the winter can take up to 15 hours. The systems are sized based on the operation profile as well as the load to ensure that enough solar power is generated during the day to power the lights or powered equipment for the time period required.
Does the light fixture need a photocell to operate?
In a nutshell, the photocell is made up of solar panels and control electronics. When the panel generates power during the day, the controller detects this and charges the batteries, turning off the light fixture. The light fixture is activated when the system stops producing power, drawing power from the batteries.
Can an existing light fixture be replaced with a solar light fixture?
An in-depth analysis from one of our solar lighting specialists is required when replacing an existing fixture with a solar fixture. Traditional grid lights are typically more cost-effective if there is power at the location; nevertheless, there are still circumstances where solar is the more cost-effective option.
What are the components of solar street lights?
Light fixture, battery, lighting controller, wire looms, pole, and footing are all included with the solar panel with bird deterrent. To comply with AS/NZS 3000, a large solar street light (with more than 90AH 12v battery) must include designated tiny circuit breakers and other characteristics (electrical safety standards).
What are the advantages of solar street lights over traditional street lights?
If power is expensive to trench and cable to site, upfront expenditures can be saved. There is no continual power from renewable energy sources. It's possible to move it around using concrete block footings or lighting trailers.
What are the disadvantages?
If there is power at the location, they tend to be more expensive upfront than main powered lights (therefore minimal trenching and cabling required). Solar panels perform best when exposed to direct sunlight; therefore, areas with a lot of shade are troublesome.
