Information About Solar Street Lights
Solar energy, one of the inexhaustible and renewable energy sources, effectively converts solar energy into electricity, greatly reducing people's energy costs and environmental crises. The worldwide energy crisis and rising electricity bills continue to increase the use of energy sources such as solar energy, geothermal energy and wind energy. Sunlight continues to become more popular in the LED lighting industry. It is mainly used for urban lighting and can be used anywhere with sufficient sunlight, such as city squares, communities, schools, factories, villages, beaches, scenic areas, mountains, islands and other lighting applications.
Solar street lights are outdoor lighting devices activated via photovoltaic or PV panels. It has rechargeable batteries that can be charged electrically while sensing light from a source such as the sun. Solar street lights require more investment as an initial investment cost. But solar lamps will prove to be a much better investment in the long run, both in terms of performance and maintenance. Its performance will continue for many years and it needs little or no maintenance. It is very important to keep solar lamps clean and free of dust. For conventional lamps, electric poles need to be installed and regularly maintained, which means a lot more cost.
Solar cells in the PV panels of solar street lights convert solar energy into electrical energy. The solar energy is then stored in the rechargeable battery. When it gets dark, the solar lights start to work using the energy stored in the battery. Solar powered light is carbon free, environmentally friendly and energy-saving. The environmental benefits of solar energy are innumerable. Solar energy is a safe, renewable energy source that reduces harmful greenhouse gas emissions, shrinks its carbon footprint and does not strain water resources. Coming to the advantages of solar street lamps;
-Solar street lamps are not affected by power cuts and network cuts, as they are independent from the grid. Traditional street lights are affected by these cuts.
-Solar lamps are highly resistant to weather conditions and have a waterproof feature. In addition, even if they do not receive sunlight for a few days, they convert the stored solar energy into electrical energy and emit light.
-Traditional lights have an average working life of 5000-8000 hours. LED lights have an average lifespan of 5-7 years.
-It increases both productivity and nighttime visibility for people. This helps people feel safe and do more activities at night.
-Since they do not need cables, they are easier to install and maintain, which reduces maintenance costs.
-They are powered by built-in solar panels so they can be used in areas with no electricity grid or remote areas with no stable power supply. This saves electricity costs. It also saves energy since sunlight is inexhaustible.
-It can realize full automatic control, no need for personnel management and save labor cost. There is no risk of leakage or electric shock.
-It makes a great contribution to environmental safety. No risk of pollution, carbon footprint, noise and radiation.
-They are very efficient in recycling. Solar panels and batteries contribute to recycling.
