Advantages of Solar Street Lights
With the development of solar energy becoming more and more mature and technology more and more perfect, the application fields of solar energy are becoming more and more extensive. Compared with other fields, the application of solar energy in lighting systems is relatively mature, while science and technology are still developing.
We will compare traditional street lights and solar LED street lights, and briefly summarize them.
- Low power and low energy consumption
- Long lifespan
- High efficiency
- Environmentally friendly
Solar street lights have low power and low energy consumption
compared with others energy, solar energy is inexhaustible, clean, pollution-free, and now affordable. Solar power generation, unparalleled cleanliness, high safety, photovoltaic energy are considered to be the most important new energy source in the 21st century.
Lighting only needs solar energy to maintain normal daily work, without the use of standard electricity to provide lighting. Solar energy or clean renewable energy is in line with the concept of green and environmental protection. They are not connected to the grid infrastructure but are completely independent or offline.
And under the same working conditions, solar LED lights have low power and low energy consumption. Conventional (metal halide or high-pressure sodium) street lights generate electricity from standard power grids, while standard power grids generate energy from fossil fuel (non-renewable) sources. Second, from the structural comparison, solar street lights do not need to lay cables, do not need AC power, and do not generate electricity; DC power is controlled.
Solar street lights have a long lifespan
Long life, high luminous efficiency, simple installation and maintenance, high safety performance, energy-saving and environmental protection, economical and practical. It can be widely used in main urban areas, secondary roads, residential areas, factories, tourist attractions, parking lots and other places.
The self-made system does not need the support of market forces. Even if there is a fault, maintenance is very convenient. You only need to replace the corresponding module.
However, traditional street lights need market electricity to operate, and the entire system will be paralyzed due to the paralysis of urban electricity consumption.
Each light of solar street light is an independent system, even if one light is broken, it will not affect the work of other lights! Solar lights are relatively widespread and sufficient, with long service life and maintenance-free, far inferior to electricity.
Solar street lights have high efficiency
the efficiency of solar street lights is through photoelectric conversion. Solar street lights use a new type of LED technology, which can provide brighter light and reduce energy usage.
LED lights with less wattage are more efficient than traditional lights, helping to reduce energy consumption while providing higher luminosity. LED lights are also unlikely to fail, with an average working time of 50,000 hours.
The working time of traditional street lamps is between 5000 and 8000 hours, the failure rate is higher, the brightness is higher, but the power consumption is only 1/10 of that of incandescent lamps and 1/3 of fluorescent lamps, but the life span of bulbs is that of incandescent lamps 50 times.
the life of fluorescent lamps is 20 times that of the successor products of incandescent lamps. Fluorescent lamps and gas discharge lamps are the fourth generation of lighting products.
Compared to traditional lighting
Two main advantages of solar street lights over traditional street lights are:
- No need for extra wiring during the initial installation. Wiring can be costly too.
- It doesn’t cost any electricity. In the long run, they save a lot of money compared to traditional street lights.
