As off-grid solar lighting requires no cabling, trenching, or utility hookup, there are significant cost savings and environmental advantages. There are many good reasons why choosing off-grid solar street lighting:
Solar Street Lights
Easy to Install
The stand-alone nature of solar lighting make it fit in almost any environment. There is no trenching, conduit installation, and no utility permitting or connection required. The cost savings offsets the initial equipment investment.
No bill to pay
There is no utility electricity bill to pay when using solar lightning. Solar panels and batteries are the only source of power.
LED fixtures, durable maintenance-free batteries, and high-performance photovoltaic (PV) solar panels with a 20 year design life and a Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge controller. The controller is design to regulate operation of the lights as desired by the customer and manages charging of the battery to maintain its health, maximizing the system lifespan. Even in extreme climates, the batteries typically provide 7-10 years of uninterrupted operation.
Street lights are also available with a complete remote monitoring and control system. This allows for system performance tracking and automatic outage reporting.
Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are properly integrated into a light fixture (luminaire). The illumination achieves over 80 lumens per watt of efficiency (7x more efficient than a light bulb) and a life of over 60,000 hours (> 12 years)
