A solar lamp is a portable light fixture composed of a LED lamp, photovoltaic solar
panel, and a rechargeable battery. Solar lamps recharge during the day. At dusk, they
turn on (usually automatically, although some
of them include a switch for on, off and
automatic) and remain illuminated overnight,
depending on how much sunlight they receive
during the day. Discharging time is generally 8
to 10 hours. Solar lights are easily installed and
maintained, and provide a cheaper alternative
to wired lamps.
LED Street lighting is a fresh new
alternative to traditional street lamps such as
LPS, HPS, or MH street lights. LED lighting
provides a multitude of advantages over
conventional incandescent light: LED street
lights are environmentally friendly, energy
efficient, and cost-effective. This smart,
"green" option for outdoor lighting has emerged on the green scene due to the recent
technological advancements of LED illumination.
But more "greener" option is Solar street lighting by recycled green energy
lighting system. They are of energy saving and environmental friendly, which can be used
for residential, road, park and so on. High quality solar panel absorbs sunlight and
convert into electric energy, then charges maintenance-free battery and finally LED
street lights automatically when day off, auto-off when day break.
The working method of solar street lights is: solar panel absorbs sunlight and
converts it to electricity to drive 12W/36W LED Street light.
The whole system is mainly composed by:
12W/36WLED street lighting, solar panel, lead acid battery and solar street
lighting controller, pole (suggest 6-8m height).
Advantages of LED Solar Street Lighting Projects
1. Lower power consumption
2. Higher power, higher intensity
3. Save all your electricity cost. Save electric transformer and cable cost. Free
4. Environmental Impact - Eliminate Hazardous Disposal
5. Longer lifetime: Lifespan of solar panel is 20-25 years. Lifespan of LED street lights
is 6-8 years. Lifespan of battery is 4-6 years.
1. Improved Safety – The solar powered street light does not require connection to
an electrical grid. It is safer and easier to install. In the event of a power outage.
