1. solar street light price in Nigeria survey

Nigeria is the world’s largest market for solar street lights because Nigeria is the largest economic country in Africa, but Nigeria’s electricity is very scarce, and the power supply is very backward. According to the calculations of Nigeria’s power department, about 55% of Nigeria’s residents have no electricity available. It has become one of the main problems hindering the economic development of Nigeria, so the market for solar street lights in Nigeria is very large.

These dealers are very sensitive to the price of solar street lights. There are also many solar street light engineering companies. Their solar street light projects are cover all over Africa. They pay more attention to the quality of solar street lights but not just the low price.

2. solar street light price in Nigeria analysis

There are two types of solar street lights, split solar street lights and integrated solar street lights. Now 90% of the market needs are split solar street lights. Integrated solar street lights account for about 10%, but the demand for integrated street lights every year All is increasing and may reach 20% in the next few years.

The price of integrated solar street lights is relatively higher than that of split solar street lights. Because integrated solar street lights are of better quality and easier to install, they are more and more popular with consumers. In other countries, most of them choose to use split solar street lights, but in Nigeria, more and more customers choose to use integrated solar street lights, so integrated street lights are getting better and better in the Nigerian market.

However, consumers in Nigeria prefer solar street lights at relatively low prices. They are not particularly concerned about the quality of solar street lights. Nigeria’s civilian market is very sensitive to the price of solar street lights.

Therefore, many traders are working in China in order to obtain higher profits. Zhongshan, Yangzhou, Jiangsu, and other places import very cheap solar street lights. In fact, the quality of these solar street lights is very poor. Usually, the solar street lights do not light up in less than half a year, and their life expectancy will not exceed two years.

3. why the solar street light price in Nigeria is very cheap

Because Nigerian customers want to buy solar street lights at the lowest price, solar street light manufacturers just have very low profits. Therefore, in order to get higher profits, solar street light manufacturers have to reduce the configuration of solar street lights or use very poor materials.

Although the price of solar street light products is very cheap, the quality is very poor. Many Nigerian consumers don’t know that they just see the appearance of solar street lights and they all look the same, so they are more willing to buy cheap solar street lights, which leads to very chaos in the industry, Even many consumers think that the quality of solar street lights is very bad, and they are no longer willing to buy solar street lights.

This idea is actually wrong. In fact, the technology of solar street lights is very mature now. A good quality solar street light can last for more than five years, and some can last for 8-10 years, but usually, the price of such high-quality solar street lights is not very cheap.

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.

Although the solar street light market in Nigeria is very large, the price of solar street lights is in a mess. most solar street lights in Nigeria in very poor quality, and the price is very low.

clodesun hope that Nigerian customers will change their views and care more about the quality of solar street lights not just be careful about the lower price of the product in the future.

    They were asking a lot of questions about the solar street light specifications; I also filled out a lot of supplier audit forms. ISO9001/TS16949/IP66 was requested by them as well. They spent half a year investigating our company’s ability. Our engineering team and I were very patient to answer all the questions they had.

    But after every investigation and audit was passed at end of the 2019. They still have not placed the order. I followed up every month, but no reply from the customer side.

    In April 2020, I received an e-mail from the customer side they told me they decided to visit our factory in June. I was very excited when received this mail as it was been half year and no news from this customer. They spent 1 week auditing our factory in June.
