Solar Street Light for Highway Project

Solar Street Light for Highway

The “photovoltaic + highway” model is not a new photovoltaic application model. In 2011, Italy built the world’s first highway using solar power generation. In 2019, China Shaanxi Expressway Group built the Hanzhong section of the Shitian Expressway. The photovoltaic power generation system of Chatiaoling Tunnel was installed.

The advantages of “photovoltaic  street light+ highway”

Solar street light is an outdoor lighting fixture powered by solar panels that convert sunlight into electricity. It consists of a photovoltaic panel, battery, controller, and LED light source. Its conversion of solar energy into electricity is stored in the battery during the day and used to power the LED lights at night. Nowadays, solar street lights have been widely used in highways, bridges, public place lighting, and home and industry places. Installing solar streetlights can help improve road safety and reduce crime rates. It can also improve residents’ living standards and promote economic development. Solar street light project  in Tunisia First, construction is convenient. Solar streetlights are very convenient to install. Many large construction companies can carry out photovoltaic facility construction and roads at the same time. Second, the management cost is relatively low, and the operation and maintenance management of photovoltaic facilities can be coordinated with the daily operation and management of highways. Third, solar streetlights generate electricity without any electricity bills.

Case study: Clodesun Solar Street Light Project for Highway in Tunisia

In October 2023, Clodesun participated in the Tunisian highway lighting project main road (four lanes in both directions) solar street lamps all completed installation and commissioning, and in January 2024 successfully passed the acceptance of the whole line of lights. In this project, the design parameters of 906 units of LiFePo4 battery solar streetlights are designed according to the actual situation and requirements, with a pole height of 10m, a light power is 100W, a color temperature of 5000K, an average illuminance of more than 30lux, and all of them are in line with the relevant technical standards of the international and industrial sectors.

Bonus: ClodeSun Solar

ClodeSun (CLODE Optoelectric Co., Ltd.) was established in 2013. Headquartered in Shenzhen, it is a high-tech enterprise in China. But ClodeSun sells a lot of products in Europe.

Clodesun launched a foldable design all in one solar street light in 2021, which was designed by our German team for more than 1 year and tested for 2 years. This light stands out among various integrated solar streetlights. It is widely praised by customers all over the world.
