price of solar street light

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.



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.

10 reasons for choosing solar led street lights

solar street lights it’s one of the systems where people use them the most. Here are 10 reasons why people prefer choosing solar-led street lights.

solar new clean energyWhile there are many nations that’ve been pushing the use of solar energy for street lights, there are still some nations that haven’t followed the same pattern due to various reasons. Some have ignored its potential, some don’t have the funds for it, some are working on it and some just don’t get enough sunlight.

We should push more and more people to use solar power and more specifically solar integrated street lights as it’s one of the areas where people use it the most. It offers a wide range of benefits and today we have ten of them listed below.

Renewable Energy Source:

Solar integrated street lights use renewable energy which means that there are no harmful byproducts. It does not have a negative impact on the environment and neither does it require an investment that big power plants like hydro and geothermal need. They always get replenished right away and never get depleted. This ensures that there’s never any absence of energy source except of course some cloudy days.

Unlimited Energy:

Solar energy is practically unlimited. The Sun is very massive and the amount of energy it has is just as much. The star was born millions of years ago and still stands strong with its light and heat energy. It is not going to die in millions of years to come so that makes it pretty much unlimited. It would be foolish not to tap into it and enjoy its benefits

Minimum Operational Cost:

While setting up solar panels the initial costs may seem overwhelming but after that, the costs of operations are quite minimal. With the off-grid nature of solar street lights, the operational costs incurred are very low. Each has its own solar panels and a battery that is damaged doesn’t affect the rest of the lights in the same street. It only needs light regular servicing as it isn’t as complicated as traditional street lights. They have minimal complexities and hence do not need frequent repairs.

Conserve energy:

Almost all solar-integrated street lights make use of sensors to toggle the lights on and off. Most of them nowadays have light sensors that trigger the lights depending on the amount of light available. When it gets dark, the lights turn on and when it starts getting brighter, the lights turn off. This is pretty smart and needs to be implemented everywhere. Some traditional street lights do have some automatic system but most of them are just timers. With our solar-integrated street light, we assure you that you definitely will conserve a significant amount of energy.

No accidents:

These lights come as standalone units and are fitted into a single piece of technology. There are no wires that dangle outside and it’s just a single piece of hardware. Such an absence of external wires makes it much safer than conventional street lights. With zero dangling wires, solar street lights pose no threats of accidents like overheating, strangulation and electrocution.

Save Money:

Getting electricity from a grid will cost a lot of money, especially considering that the street lamp will be lit up throughout the night. Instead of doing that we can instead go solar street lights as they don’t have fees like power grid lines. Yes, countries do charge tax for it but that’s way lesser than the fees for regular electricity lines.

Almost zero power cuts:

Solar street lights are super-efficient and hardly get a breakdown. Furthermore, since they’re not connected to any central grid or plant, they light up the streets throughout the night irrespective of any power cuts or grid failures. They run on their own and even if they do break down, it doesn’t happen to the lights at once. And since they have their own independent units, one’s breakdown doesn’t really affect the other.

Easy to install:

Solar integrated street lights have a very simple setup. They do not have a complicated wiring system like traditional street lights. Solar street lights come with minimal setup needs and have very few steps to follow before the lights are up and running.

Government offers:

In many countries, the government is giving lucrative offers to promote the use of solar panels. They have deals like interest-free loans, heavy discounts, tax discounts, rewards, exchange programs, and so on. We should take this opportunity and tap into the market. We should make use of such offers and get solar integrated electronics before they get over and you get obliged to buy them without any deals.


Solar integrated street lights are also quite flexible. They come in handy for remote areas which are far off any power grid. Such places often have difficulties in accessing electricity, but these solar street lights just need the sun’s rays and nothing more. They can enjoy the features of street lights even without having any power grids nearby.


The integration of solar street lights is the future development trend of street lights. I hope that everyone will seize the opportunity to break through some technical problems of solar street lights, the clodesun is always with you, and we will concentrate on solar street lights in the future
