Aside from not being connected to the electrical power grid, which avoids you from hefty electricity bills, it also consumes less energy with the help of state-of-the-art modern technologies that manufacturers used to build it. No doubt that people are eventually switching to these street lights or using them as a good alternative to the traditional street lights. The questions now are, how much does integrated solar street lights cost? Is it worth your investment?

In today’s article, we are going to give you an idea of how much these solar street lights with poles cost and why it is better than the traditional street lights that you have right now?

What is Solar Street Light?

From the word itself, street lights are generally a light source mounted on any lighting structure, walls or commonly integrated with a pole producing light from solar energy to brighten your dark streets. Solar street lights provide light sources which are generated and powered by photovoltaic solar panels. Its photovoltaic panels emit natural light from the sun then convert it into solar power. Generally, it uses a rechargeable battery, which stores solar energy and powers either an LED or fluorescent lamp to produce light at night.

How do Solar Street Lights Work?

Integrated solar street lights are light sources that are used outside to light the streets. They are usually integrated into a pole or mounted on street walls and other lighting structures. These lights are composed of solar batteries and photovoltaic panels, which charge the battery to power the LED lamps or fluorescent light at night.

Generally, the battery-powered solar street light is a standalone system that stores and generates energy emitted by the photovoltaic solar panels. Each street light type is made with dusk to dawn sensors, making the lights turn on automatically when the sun goes down and turn off automatically when the sun is up. During the daytime, the solar street lights are charging and storing enough solar power.

How Much Do Solar Street Lights with Pole Cost?

Solar Street Lights is a good eco-friendly and renewable alternative lighting solution that captures the hearts of people, particularly those green movement supporters and those who want to sustain and protect the environment they’re living in. People purchase different types of solar street lights for a variety of purposes. Some purchase to provide enough light on their house street, backyard, and garden, while others need it for commercial business’ parking lot, public’s general areas, and roadsides.

If you plan to buy these street lights for better and eco-friendly lighting solutions, then this price list can help you prepare your budget.

Price of Solar Street Light with Pole

If you are planning to get a solar street light for your street house, backyard, or parking lot, you must be thinking about its purchase pricing. To give you an idea the initial investment for these off-grid solar lights is almost double the investment for a traditional street light system. Therefore, you have to prepare a much bigger budget for the entire lighting system as well as for its installation.

But, the good catch for investing in solar street lights is its abundant benefits; and one of these is to avoid the hefty electric bills you have to pay monthly. To give you an estimate, over the 8 years you may pay about $10,000 for the maintenance and electricity costs. On the other hand, if you will invest in a solar street light, the cost will become much lesser, let’s say approximately $5,000, which is only half of your expenses on standard street lights.

Different Types of Solar Street Lights and its Cost 

Solar street lights are available in a variety of styles, designs, features, and purposes. They are:

  1. Split Solar Street Light

A Split solar street light generates power from its power supply system and is not connected to the electric grid. It is composed of solar panels, a lamp head, a lamp pole, based and a control box with the controller and battery. Typically, these street lights are available in two types of solar street lamp systems: 12V and 24V. The split solar street light is flexible enough to adjust where the sunlight is to absorb more heat because it is composed of a rotatable solar panel.

Besides, you can use any size of solar panel to generate and store more solar power to make it stay longer during winter nights. The split-type solar street lamps use a large-capacity lead-acid battery, particularly a gel battery, which provides a 100-percent luminous light all night.

A Split-type solar street light pole is usually more than 5m in height with high gravity center while its solar panels are designed in hanging type to make the whole equipment set more wind resistant.

Cost

Split solar street light’s cost varies according to its materials, poles, and installation. Typically, the entire set costs double the price of an integrated solar street light with its average cost ranging from $150 to $400. The installation is not yet included in this average total cost.

  1. All-in-one Solar Street Lights

All-in-one solar street lights are the new generation set of solar-led street lights built with batteries, LED lights, and controllers in one body lamp. Unlike, split-type solar street lights, these lights are all compact with one body. The battery that can be used with these is a lithium battery and lead-acid battery. Also, it only carries a smaller size than the split-solar street lights since all-in-one solar street lights equipment are combined to make one lamp body. Since it was compacted into one body and operates as one, a constant heavy rain might lessen its performance.

Cost:

The cost may differ according to the installation cost and the product materials it has. The cost of all-in-one solar street lights is much cheaper than that of Split-type solar street lights. Its average cost ranges from $90 to $200. The installation cost is not included in the given price.

  1. Two-in-one Solar Street Lights

Two-in-one solar street lights have a solar panel installed on the body lamp’s top powered by batteries, LED fixtures, and controllers. Since it is made with a solar panel bracket design, it is not capable of carrying a solar panel power capacity bigger than 50W. For that reason, the led power should be under 30w – 40W only to ensure a longer lighting time. Same with other solar street lights, it also generates and converts solar energy to solar power without depending on the grid. It also has a pole to support its base.

Cost:

The cheapest cost of two-in-one solar street lights spans from $20 to $40 but these lights only last for a year.  Whereas, its average price ranges from $60-$150. This price is only for the lights and poles.

  1. Solar CFL Street Light

Solar CFL street light is an independent solar PV street lighting system composed of a solar photovoltaic module that works for battery charging, a rechargeable lead-acid battery that works as power storage; a Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) as a light source; a high-efficiency electronic inverter and controllers for the lamp operation, battery charging and discharging; and a hard-ware like a pole and battery box.  It is also equipped with automatic dusk to dawn sensors and a pre-set timer. It carries 12,15,18, and 24 W of solar capacity.

This street light produces a high luminous light efficiency which is highly in demand in the market for crossroads and streets located in areas that are far from the electric grid.

Cost:

Its average price rolls down into a cheaper price today as compared to its pricing a few years ago. Currently, solar CFL street lights cost around $130 to $200 which is close enough to all-in-one solar street lights.

  1. Solar LED Street Light

Solar LED street light comprises Solar PV Module for battery charging, inverter, controllers, poles, and light-emitting diode (LED) lamps for its light sources. Among other lamps, LED is one of the practical and common lamps because many Solar LED Street Light manufacturers offer them in a variety of styles, shapes, and sizes. It’s durable making it last for as long as 50,000 hours in use. LED only requires very little current to work, that’s why it is smaller than other lamps. Although it is small in actual size it can still handle 6W, 9W, 12W, 15W, 18W, and 24W solar capacity. One of its main advantages is they are easy to install which also makes the installation fee much cheaper than other solar street lights.

Cost:

The average cost of solar LED-powered street lights varies depending on the materials. However, unlike other solar street lights, LED lights only cost around $10 to $50 without the installation fee and pole.

Installation Cost

Although the installation of conventional electrical street lights is more affordable than solar-powered lights, you can still earn more savings by investing in solar street lights, when you compute your expenses on electric-powered lights over time.

To give you an idea, a typical high-pressure sodium street light powered by electricity costs around $1,350.00 including the pole. While its installation costs, to set up the pole and connect the electrical wire from the pole to the transformer, might cost you about $4,550.00. Take note that your monthly electric bill is not yet included in the computation.

On the other hand, Solar street lights with poles and installation fees can cost around $1,800.00 to $5,000.00 depending on the system that you need. Its installation is quick and easy as it is not connected to the grid, making it more affordable.  For this initial investment, you can save money from the 25 years of electrical bills for your lights, not to mention the other benefits that you can enjoy when you invest in solar street lights.

Benefits of Solar Street Lights

  1. Lifespan – Compared to traditional street lights, solar-powered lights can last longer. How? a conventional street light can last for approximately an average of 5,000 to 8000 hours or to make it simpler, it can only last for a year or less of usage. On the other hand, solar-powered lights’ lifespan is around 5 to 7 years, making it ahead of the traditional lights.
  2. Energy-efficient – One of its advantages is its ability to save energy while producing enough solar power to light the streets at night. Generally, the energy that can be saved from solar lights is around 40 to 60% as compared to the traditional high-intensity discharge light products that consume a lot of energy.
  3. Eco-friendly – For being solar-powered street lights, they offer an eco-friendly lighting solution. Besides, it is a good alternative to the conventional street light system. Aside from it generates power from renewable energy, it also has no mercury in the structure. It also has much sturdy and durable combined materials contributing to its longer life span which reduces more waste compared to traditional street lights.
  4. Less light waste – Street lights powered by solar are made with direct refractors that help in lessening the undue loss of light, leading to high-quality performance. Besides, the light from the solar lamps reaches where it is positioned, so there will be little to no light energy waste.
  5. Low greenhouse gas emission – One of the main reasons for intense global warming is the constant release of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Thus, it should be lessened, if it cannot be avoided. By using solar-powered street lights, you can help in eliminating carbon emissions since it does not release greenhouse gases.

Is it Worth it to Buy and Install Solar Street Lights?

Given the average cost of solar street light, its installation plus its abundant benefits to users, we must say that it is indeed worth your money and effort. As compared to standard electric street lights, solar street lights are one step ahead. This light can provide more benefits to its users due to its state-of-the-art and smart technology that blends with the world we have today. Although it cost a big amount of money, you can guarantee that you’re paying for a lifetime investment that can return your initial expenses for the next coming years.

3. Trees or buildings do not exceed lamp too high in case of shadows on solar panel

Nowadays, our country pays more attention to greening projects, leading to many solar streetlight projects that will follow greening projects. However, in summer thunderstorms, the trees near the solar streetlights are easily blown down by strong winds, destroyed, or directly damaged. Therefore, the trees around the solar streetlight should be pruned regularly, especially in the case of the wild growth of plants in summer. Ensuring the stable growth of trees can reduce the damage to solar streetlights caused by dumping trees.

To ensure that the panel does not get any shadow from any object including the pole.

Cost comparison with traditional street lights

In many places in the world, traditional street lights are getting replaced with solar-powered street lights. Main reason? The long-term cost advantage.

  • Upfront purchase cost: in most cases, solar LED street lights are much more expensive. This is the main reason that most buyers think twice before making a decision.
  • Installation cost: this might be surprising to you, but installing traditional street lights require wiring and underground trenching to connect to grid lines creating enormous additional costs,
  • Maintenance cost: Solar-powered LED street light poles need battery replacement every 5-7 years. Traditional street lights simply can’t compete with that.

To summarize, solar street light has a much lower lifetime cost. Over 10-year period, traditional street lights installation, maintenance, and electricity cost per unit ranges from U$8,000-12,000 while solar street powered LED light cost is estimated at 4,000-6,000 USD over the same period of time.

How to buy the best-quality integrated solar street lights?

This is the doubt of many purchasers. What are the tips for purchasing integrated solar street lights? Next, Belinda will introduce you to the precautions for purchasing high-quality solar street lights.

1. Battery life: The service life of high-quality solar street lithium iron phosphate batteries can be as long as eight years, and the service life of low-quality batteries is only a few months, half a year, you need to replace the new battery.

2. Lamp bead brightness: Solar street lights do not mean that the greater the power of the light source, the more manufacturers falsely report the power, or buy low-lumen lamp beads to reduce costs. In fact, to achieve the same brightness, the lower the light source power, the better.

Power saving, the luminous efficiency of LED light sources of other companies on the market is now 80-100Lm/W, and the light decay is high, the light decay reaches 15%-30% in one year, and the angel eye LED light source uses high-quality LED chips, And the low light attenuation structure and process of the patented technology, the luminous efficiency reaches 130Lm/W, the actual light attenuation is only about 2-3%, and the patented lamp mold can better use the light source.

3. Resistant to the low-temperature environment:

Clodesun company equipped with an exclusive patented ultra-low temperature protection device, which can work at -40 ℃, even in high and cold areas.

all in one solar light

In order to ensure the working state and efficiency of led solar street lights, it is necessary to consider whether the storage battery can meet the use conditions of solar street lights, and check the use of the storage battery in time. The price of led solar street lights is determined by the materials used and the fineness of the workmanship of the led solar street lights. It needs to be selected before installation.

Now that the world Internet is very developed, people’s ability to obtain information is becoming easier, so now everyone can understand some things relatively easily with integrated solar street light suppliers. It can be said that in the current solar street light market, everyone now values the quality of integrated solar street lights a lot, but is not so concerned about the price. So the era of seizing the market by fighting the price war has passed. If the quality of the integrated solar street light suppliers is not doing well, then it is likely that consumers will be lost.

When we buy integrated solar street light products, we must remember to compare over 3 manufacturers, only by comparing you will know which product is good quality, the price is affordable, and the after-sales service is relatively late to improve. For non-professionals, it is impossible to judge the quality of products by appearance, especially for users who lack professional knowledge, so Belinda recommends the buyers buy some samples to test first, samples can prove everything.

If you care about quality, please respect its price; if what you want is cheap, please don’t assume that there will be good quality! No matter how beautiful the language is, it is a lie! remember forever.

Solar street light price in Nigeria

Since 2016, ClodeSun has become a top Solar Street Light Supplier in Nigeria.

Nigeria has the world’s largest market for solar-led street lights, and the solar street light price in Nigeria competition is very fierce these years.

Many Nigerian traders import all-in-one solar street lights from China, Jiangsu, Shenzhen, Zhongshan, and Yangzhou, There is a very large solar street light market in Lagos Nigeria, which specializes in sells solar street lights.

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.

split solar street light

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.

solar street lights price

After customers have tested the accessories and materials of our solar street lights, they know that we are using the best materials, so they are not very sensitive to the price, but the quality requirements are indeed very high, and the after-sales service requirements are also particularly high.

Conclusion:
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.

Do solar street lights need to replace the battery?

The life of other accessories of solar street lights can last over 10 years, but solar street light battery usually needs to be replaced after 3-5 years, so the key is the battery life and quality that influenced the solar street lights life.

All in one solar street light is an independent power generation lighting system, it is composed of a battery, solar street light pole, LED lights, battery, solar street light controller, and other components.

No need to connect to the mains, the solar panel converts light energy into electrical energy during the day and stores it in the solar battery, at night the battery supplies power to the LED light source to make it shine.

solar street lights battery

1、Solar led lights panels

We all know the solar panel, it is the whole system of power generation equipment, it is composed of silicon wafers, the service life is very long, can reach about 20 years of life.

2、Solar led LED light source

LED light source is composed of at least a few dozen light beads containing LED chips, theoretical life of 50,000 hours, normal is by can reach about 10 years.

3、Solar led Street light pole

Solar Street light pole is made of Q235 steel rolled pole, the whole hot-dip galvanized treatment, hot galvanized anti-rust, and anti-corrosion ability are strong, so at least to ensure 15 life.

4、Solar led street light Controller

General controller waterproof sealing grade is high, the normal use of 10-15 years is no problem.

5、Solar led street light Battery

Solar street lights are currently mainly used in the battery is a gel maintenance-free battery and lithium batteries. Gel battery life normal 2 to 3 years, lithium battery life normal in 5 to 8 years. In normal use, 3 to 5 years is the time to replace the battery, because, by 3 years or 5 years, the actual capacity of the battery is much lower than the initial capacity, affecting the lighting effect.

In general, the key to the service life of solar street lights is the battery, when buying solar street lights, it is recommended that the battery should be configured to be larger, to develop the life of the battery is its cyclic discharge life, complete discharge is about 500 to 800 times.

If the capacity of the battery is only enough to discharge every day, then the battery is easily damaged, but the capacity of the battery is several times the daily discharge, which means a few days to have a cycle, which greatly increases the life of the battery, and the capacity of the battery is several times the daily discharge, is to ensure that the number of consecutive rainy days is longer.

The service life of solar street lights also lies in the usual necessary maintenance, in the early stages of installation, to strictly follow the construction standards to do, in the configuration is also as reasonable as possible with, increase the capacity of the battery, so as to extend the life of solar street lights.

all in one solar led street light

The current 8-year non-replacement battery has in fact been such a product, the battery used in our solar street lights is designed not to be replaced for 8 years. Let’s put it this way, there is a lithium-ion battery with a cycle count of 2,000 cycles, which means no replacement within 5 years,

Our new German designed solar street light has been on the market since 2008, according to all the statistics conducted worldwide the proportion of bad batteries after use is less than 0.5% (no need to replace)

The fact that the batteries in our products are not replaced within 5 years is very normal and a fact, plus our new invention of a battery technology patent (a technology to extend the life of the battery) in 2012 on the basis of which the life of the design is 8 years without replacement.

How to judge the quality of Led Solar Street Light with Pole

How to judge the quality of led solar street lights?

We did a clear investigation so that we can choose high-quality LED solar street light poles?

With green energy-saving and emission reduction is getting more and more attention, Led solar street lights are also widely used in road lighting. The increase in the number of peer companies has also intensified the competition for solar street lights. In order to pursue profits, some companies began to cut corners on the supporting components used in solar street lights with poles.

solar street light with pole

First: first look at the plate of the LED solar street light pole.

Many unscrupulous manufacturers use the substandard thickness of steel or non-standard steel to fill the good. High-quality steel can withstand more than twelve levels of natural wind, but will not produce shaking or deformation.

The quality of substandard manufacturers use non-standard steel, in order to reach acceptance will be sprayed several times to increase the thickness of the solar street light pole.

So to determine whether the quality of the pole is up to standard, it is actually very simple. If you find that the thickness of the pole meets the standard, then you can test the weight of the pole, if the actual weight does not meet the standard.

then the possibility of spraying to increase the thickness exists. At this point, you can determine whether the light pole is up to standard by hanging off the spray plastic with a blade.

Second: looking at the workmanship of the solar street light pole.

The production of light poles requires that there is no leakage of welding, a false welding phenomenon. Welding should be beautiful to ensure that the welding is secure and durable.

Third: look at the galvanization of the solar street light pole.

Legitimate manufacturers are using Q235 steel for the overall hotness of the way to ensure that the light pole will not rust or become rotten. But some manufacturers in order to reduce costs, often using cold galvanized ways of processing light poles.

Although the light pole for cold galvanized will feel the light pole surface bright, the thickness of the zinc layer is only a few tenths of the hot-dip galvanized light pole, its anti-corrosion performance than hot galvanized is also far from. So if you are a purchaser of solar street lights, then this is something you have to pay attention to.

Finally: we must also look at the spraying treatment of the solar street light pole.

Before doing the spraying treatment again, be sure to polish the light pole again. So that the light pole for spraying is only uniform, more pure color. At the same time if the light pole to do the color separation requirements, must observe the color of the light pole at the color separation is clear, is not clear also belongs to substandard products.

And we need to know the general wall thickness of the solar street light pole.

Solar street light pole with how thick, usually depends on how high the pole, single-arm or double-arm lights, 2-4 meters of solar street lights on the general wall thickness of 2.5 cm, 4-8 meters of solar street lights on the general use of 2.5-3.0 cm, 8-15 solar street lights on the general use of 3.0-4.0 cm, this is only the general standard, specific but also according to the wind requirements are different, the light pole thickness is also different.

led solar street light with pole

The commonly used light pole is a steel tapered pole, which is characterized by beautiful, strong, durable, and easy to make a variety of shapes, simple processing technology, high mechanical strength.

Commonly used tapered light pole cross-sectional shapes are round, hexagonal, octagonal, etc., the taper is mostly 1:9-1:15, wall thickness according to the force of the pole is generally selected in 2.5-5mm.

Solar street light poles are used outdoors, in order to prevent the pole from rusting and corrosion and reduce the structural strength, the pole must be galvanized and sprayed with plastic.

Hot-dip galvanizing spraying is mainly a preventive measure against the causes of rust and corrosion. Hot-dip galvanizing spraying can avoid or mitigate the effects of humidity, high temperature, oxidation, chlorides, and other factors. The commonly used methods are as follows.

1、Light pole hot-dip galvanizing: The process and method of dipping the pre-treated parts into the molten zinc solution to form zinc and zinc-iron alloy coating on its surface, with a zinc layer thickness of 65-90 um. The zinc layer of the galvanized parts should be uniform, smooth, free of burrs, dripping tumors, and excess lumps, and the zinc layer should be firmly bonded to the steel pole, with no peeling and no bulging of the zinc layer.

2、Light pole plastic spraying treatment: hot-dip galvanizing and then plastic spraying treatment, plastic spraying powder should be selected outdoor special powder, the coating shall not have flaking, cracking phenomenon. Plastic spraying treatment can be higher to improve the anti-corrosion performance of the steel pole, and greatly improve the beauty and decorative solar street light pole, the color can also have a variety of choices.

For example, 6m solar street light with pole parameters specifications.

  1. 1、Specification: Light source is 6 meters from the ground, the material of the pole is Q235 carbon steel.
  2. 2, technical requirements (in line with and not less than national standards).

①The light pole adopts a conical single bent arm light pole, with a bottom diameter of 154mm and a top diameter of 60mm.
②The light pole adopts hot-dipped galvanized internal and external surface corrosion treatment, in line with GB/T13912-92 standard, the galvanized surface should be smooth and beautiful. Provide galvanized test report. Galvanized thickness is not less than 85μm.
③Light pole wall thickness ≥4mm, light pole chassis thickness of 22mm.
④Welding surface without cracks, porosity, biting edge, not welded full defects.
The supplier shall ensure that the light pole meets the wind pressure requirements of Wutai County and ensure the normal use of the light pole.
⑤ service life of 20 years or more.
⑥The width of the weld seam is 4-9mm, and the height of the weld seam is 0-3mm.
⑦The supplier shall carry out quality inspection of the products before they leave the factory, and carry out a comprehensive inspection of the welding quality, dimensional deviation, and surface quality.

If it is a 20m width road, it should be considered as the main road, so it needs to be bilaterally laid light before it can be. In addition, the lighting requirements of the road mainly include illumination requirements, illumination uniformity of two,

where the uniformity of the general to be above 0.3, the greater the uniformity, indicating that the solar street light of the light scattered more open, the better the lighting effect.

solar street light project

Therefore, we can assume a double row of symmetrical layout, the height of the street lamp pole is at least greater than 1/2 the width of the road, so the height of the pole to 10-12 meters; assume a 10-meter pole, the installation spacing of street lights is generally about 2 times the height of the pole, so the spacing of at least 30 meters;

then assume that the solar street lights have a 30-meter spacing, the height of the pole is 10 meters, the power of the solar street lights, in this case, should be more than 100W, in order to basically meet the lighting requirements of the main road.

Secondly, illumination and power are related to the installation height of the lamps. For solar street light, we hope that the larger the angle of illumination, the better, so that the uniformity will also be good, and can make the spacing of the poles larger, reducing the number of poles installed, saving costs.

Conclusion: Today Belinda introduces some specifications about the led solar street light pole, hope I can give our clients some suggestions which will help you to choose good quality led street light pole.
