We have several customers from Nigerian engineering companies. When they find us, they don’t ask for the price of solar street lights, but visit our factory first. After we exchange some technical parameters, they will come to our production area. , Test the parameters and quality of our solar panels, lithium batteries, controllers, and then talk about the price of solar street lights.
