Solar Light


Solar Street Light is a very useful and simple maintenance procedure. Invest only one time in your life and get light energy forever. Supplies power for 25 years without break. For 20 years the power to people and also Eco-friendly environment. Solar Energy doesn’t produce carbon dioxide.The solar panels charge the batteries during the day to provide the needed energy for operation of the solar light at night. This is designed by your solar lighting specialist and takes into consideration many factors including installation location, winter weather conditions, local AASHTO wind load requirements, and system operation profile. All these factors must be calculated together to ensure the system operates reliably for the end user.

Solar Panel

The solar panel is one of the most important parts of a solar street light, as the solar panel can convert solar energy into electricity that the lamps can use. There are two types of solar panels commonly used in solar street lights: mono-crystalline and polycrystalline. The conversion rate of mono-crystalline solar panels is much higher than their poly-crystalline counterparts. Solar panels also vary in wattage systems.

Lighting Fixture

LEDs are usually used as the primary lighting source of modern solar street lights, as the LED will provide much higher luminosity with lower energy consumption. The energy consumption of an LED fixture is at least 50% lower than the HPS fixture counterpart which is widely used as the lighting source in traditional street lights. A lack of warm-up time in LEDs also allows for use of motion detectors for additional efficiency gains.

Rechargeable Battery

Batteries will store the electricity generated by the solar panel during the day and provide energy to the fixture during the night. The life cycle of the battery is very important to the lifetime of the light and the capacity of the battery will affect the backup days of the lights. There are two types of batteries commonly used in solar-powered street lights- gel cell deep cycle batteries as well as lead acid batteries. Lithium-ion batteries are also popular these days as they are compact in size and not prone to theft due to their lack of use in other situations unlike lead acid batteries.

Pole

Strong poles are necessary to all street lights, especially to solar street lights as there are often components mounted on the top of the pole: fixtures, panels and sometimes batteries. However, in some newer designs, the PV panels and all electronics are integrated in the pole itself. Wind resistance is also a factor.
