Solar Street Lightening

Our solar-powered LED lighting solutions harness the sun’s energy to provide high-quality illumination for indoor and outdoor applications.

Solar streetlight is a stand-alone solar system consisting of a pole, battery bank, photovoltaic module and LED or CFL luminaries. The use of solar power coupled with energy-efficient luminaires makes this doubly environment-friendly. The configuration can be customized to the wattage and brightness required and it can be designed for dusk to dawn operations with the required number of days of autonomy.

Solar street lights are great alternatives to the standard grid electric lighting. These are efficient and highly effective light sources that consist of components like battery tank, pole, photovoltaic module, and CFL or LED luminaires. The energy-efficient luminaires along with the utilization of solar power make solar lights a highly economical and environment-friendly option. These lights are also customizable in their brightness and wattage requirements.


Working

Solar street lights are raised light sources that are powered by the photovoltaic panels and are either integrated into the pole or mounted on the lighting structure. These photovoltaic panels charge the battery that powers the LED lamps at night. The battery-based solar street light is generally a standalone system which stores energy from the solar panels. The street lights come fitted with dusk to dawn sensors which make the lights turn on automatically in the evening and turn off in the morning while taking in the charge during daytime.

Features

  • Automatic dusk to dawn operations
  • With solar street lights, there is no issue of changing the settings for the different weather conditions as it turns on and off automatically. It even turns on when the natural lights dim out to certain levels during the day for cloudy weather conditions.

  • Cable-free operation
  • Any standard street light requires wiring to be done all around it. But the solar panel street lights are free from any wiring clutter. These differ from the traditional street lights in the fact that here the whole body of the product including the battery are concise and concealed inside with no requirement for additional wiring on the outside.

  • The variability of working hours
  • The working hours of solar street lights are not fixed, and these vary depending on several factors like season, present weather conditions, geographical locations, and the availability of light for a given period of time. The lights might dim out when it does not receive much sunlight for prolonged periods on rainy, cloudy, and wintery days.

  • High transmission of lights
  • The solar street lights are fitted with optical grade materials that ensure very high average light transmission. The ideal color mixing results in the highest possible efficiency and large area coverage than the traditional electric lights.

    Components

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Types

  • Solar CFL street light
  • The solar CFL street light has a high luminous efficiency which makes it highly in demand in the market for its brightness of the light and minimum operational cost. The fact that the costs have also come down now compared to what it was a few years back also adds to the popularity.

  • Solar LED street light
  • Solar LED Street light comes with both custom and standard variants. One of the main advantages of these lights is that they are really easy to install and come with highly refractive acrylic fittings.

  • Solar FLOOD street light
  • The solar flood street lights give you the maximum area coverage and also come with the highest luminance. They are the best options when you want to cover a larger area using fewer units of light.

  • All-in-one street light
  • The All-in-one street light is user-friendly as it does not need any cable for the installation. These run on the energy efficient lithium battery and have one of the lightest weights among all the available models of solar street lights.

    Advantages

  • Environment-friendly:
  • With the all in one solar street light, there is always the guarantee of around eighty percent lumen maintenance even after 50,000 hours of service. It has several environmental advantages like no mercury in the structure and longer component life which combine to produce less waste than traditional lights.

  • Energy-efficient:
  • The energy savings from the solar street lights are one of the biggest advantages. The energy saved from the solar lights is generally around 40-60% more when compared to the traditional high-intensity discharge products.

  • Thermal efficiency:
  • When it comes to an integrated solar street light, the thermal management is the key to make it last longer. Each of the light bars is mounted to the heat sinks that makes the LED units are kept at an optimal temperature.

  • Less wastage of light:
  • The solar street lights are fitted with direct refractors that minimize the undue loss of light leading to superior quality of performance. The light from the solar lamps reaches where it is directed, and there is no wastage of the light energy.

  • Low greenhouse gas emission:
  • The increase of greenhouse gases like carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide has led to the alarming situation of global warming. According to a recent study, the use of solar-powered street lights can eliminate the carbon emissions by 258 million metric tons if they are extensively used over the next twenty years.
