In Depth Comparison: Solar Street Light VS. Traditional Street Light

What is the difference between traditional and Solar street light Prices? Clodesun will analyze the cost of the two types of street lights clearly this time. In order to solve this problem, our company’s senior engineer team collected various aspects of knowledge to analyze the cost of traditional street lighting systems and solar street lights.

If you do a quick research of the market, you will find that because the US government and world leaders are promoting renewable energy, solar street lights have rapidly become popular and grow rapidly in the past 7 years. More and more countries now advocate the use of solar renewable energy for lighting instead of traditional lighting.

Following is the analysis of the cost of the two types of street lights.

 

What is the price of traditional street light?

Traditional street lighting obtains electricity by connecting to a standard power grid. The average cost of traditional street lamps (including lighting fixtures, poles, and lamp holders) is $120 per lamp. Although the cost of lamps is lower, traditional street lights need to be connected to the grid, which requires slotting and underground wiring. If added the labor costs for trenching and wiring, the cost per meter for consumers in this process is about US$40.

Then, the average cost of traditional lighting slotting and connection will be about 3,200 US dollars, which is much higher than the price of solar street lights. Moreover, traditional solar street lights are not energy-saving. You can imagine how much coal is consumed for 12 hours a day.

What is the price of solar street lights?

Solar street lights obtain electricity through the process of solar panels absorbing solar energy, which converts light into usable voltage. Solar street lights (solar panels, batteries, controllers, inverters, lamp heads) require advanced technology, so the price is higher, on average about 330 US dollars per light.

Solar street lights do not need to be connected to the power grid, they are separated from the main grid system and can be installed in remote locations. So clients can avoid the long and expensive process of slotting and wiring. Therefore, the total cost of the solar street lighting system is greatly reduced.

The price of solar street lights makes customers feel more expensive than traditional street lights initially, but when you carefully study their total cost details. You will find that the biggest difference between the price of traditional lights and solar lights is trenching, installation, maintenance, and electrical bill costs rather than just the cost of street lighting.

 

Conclusion

When comparing the total cost of traditional street lighting and solar street lighting, it is clear to distinguish who is the winner. Overall, the cost of solar street lights in 5 years is about 4,800 US dollars, while the cost of traditional street lights is as high as 8,800 US dollars, which is due to the cost of trenching and installation.

As above, this is only the cost for one street light. If one project needs to install 100 sets of street lights, and 200 sets of street lights, obviously, solar street lights are more cost-effective.

If there is a road that needs to be installed with a lighting system, will you choose traditional street lights or solar integrated street lights? If you just think that the cost of the product, maybe solar street lights is more expensive, you are wrong. Taking all the costs together, it is obvious that solar lights can win the cost battle of street lights. If you want to learn more about solar street lights, please follow the Clodesun blog.

Advantages of integrated solar street light

Integrated solar street lights have good advantages in energy saving, high light efficiency, easy to install, and very good quality with the technique improved now, in modern society, even in a small town, the total power consumption of traditional street lights is quite amazing. In this case, Integrated solar street lights have become more wildly used in the world.

Following are the advantages of integrated solar street lights.

Integrated solar street light with the high light efficiency advantage

Integrated solar street lights do not have the problem of insufficient brightness as people imagine. On the contrary, the probability of failure of ordinary street lights is quite common. As the fourth-generation new light source, LED has been effectively used in urban lighting and beautification, road lighting, courtyard lighting, indoor lighting, and other fields of lighting and applications, especially in remote areas without electricity, solar lighting lamps are more It has a wide range of application prospects.

However, the traditional LED light source has a small opening angle, high brightness of the spot area, and strong directivity of light scattering. The light source is easy to form a spot, and the light uniformity is not good, which restricts its application in the lighting field.

Compared with ordinary electric lights, Integrated solar street lights do not consume conventional energy, do not need to install ditching and wiring, independent power generation lighting system, and automatically turn on and off without special personnel control.

Integrated solar street light is easier to install

Integrated solar street lighting is mainly used in power-deficient areas and new urban and rural roads. The main advantage is that it saves the cost of power cable laying and pipeline excavation, can flexibly place products and can realize automatic opening according to sunlight conditions. Turn off the light control and other intelligent control, solve the problem of inflexible installation and realize quick installation,

From the perspective of market demand, integrated solar street lights have achieved new breakthroughs in improving light efficiency. They are favored by customers in all aspects of cost performance. These breakthroughs of integrated solar street lights not only make the same wattage more Good brightness but also save the cost to customers.

Integrated Solar street light quality is improved

The integrated solar street light has made great breakthroughs not only in terms of light efficiency, but also in terms of product appearance, waterproofing, and even the connection between cables and components. The quality of solar street lights has been effectively improved.

The built-in photosensitive system automatically turns on the lighting at night, and it can be normally illuminated even in rainy weather for a week. According to estimates, these solar street lights can save nearly 17,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity each year.

In addition, the advantages of energy saving cannot be ignored. Integrated solar street lights mainly rely on solar energy to generate electricity during use, which can save a lot of electricity.

The biggest feature of clodesun series integrated street light housing produced by Belinda: With light-sensing structure, intelligent control, and standby position design, it can automatically light up when the sun goes down and the sky is getting darker, and the illuminance of the lamp can be automatically halved after midnight; After dawn, the light can be automatically extinguished; under special circumstances, people can manually control it; and when the lamp fails, the intelligent control system can automatically alarm. Especially suitable for solar street lights, suitable for European and African standards, easy to use, safe, and fast!

Clodesun believes that our integrated solar street lights will be widely used in the global market and our lives in the near future to achieve energy conservation and environmental protection.
