Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. Solar power is a kind of inexhaustible and environmentally-friendly new energy resource. The solar street light is one of the applications of solar power.
The main advantages of solar street lamps include:
1. Energy-saving and environmentally-friendly
The solar street light converts the sunlight into electricity without electricity consumption. It produces no pollution and no radiation, which conforms to the present environmental protection concept.
2. Safety and durable
There may be potential safety hazards caused by construction quality, material aging, abnormal power supply, and other reasons. The solar street lamp does not use AC but uses a battery to absorb solar energy and convert low-voltage DC into light energy, so there is no potential safety hazard. Nowadays, most solar modules in the market have stable performance for at least ten years due to the mature manufacturing technology. They can generate electricity for twenty-five years or even longer.
3. High technology and low maintenance costs.
With a smart lighting option, it automatically turns on to full brightness when it senses human movement within a specific radius of the light.In remote areas far from cities and towns, the cost of maintaining or repairing conventional power generation, transmission, street lamps, and other equipment is very high. The solar street lamp only needs periodic inspection and little maintenance work, and its maintenance cost is less than that of a conventional power generation system.
In conclusion, the photovoltaic industry will continue to develop rapidly in the coming years. With the development and upgrading of the technology, solar street light will be applied much widely. These unparalleled and smart features of solar LED street lights allow people to rely on this type of lights.
