Bring Positive Change in Your Community Through Solar Street Lights

Introduction

With technology advancing every day, more sustainable lighting solutions are being created to keep communities safe. One of the biggest leaps in lighting technology is the invention of the solar street light. This innovative product helps make communities more secure while reducing their energy consumption and carbon footprint.

Solar street lights also benefit communities in remote areas that do not have access to traditional electrical grids. By using these lights, they can improve their quality of life and make a lasting positive impact on the environment.

If you want to install sustainable lighting solutions in your community, turn to Ecoshift Corporation. We offer a wide range of solar street lights perfect for any project. To ensure that you get the highest-quality products, we only use the finest materials during the manufacturing process.

What Is a Solar Street Light?

Traditional street lights are raised light sources mounted on poles and typically installed along public streets and highways. The main difference between a solar street light and a traditional one is how it gets electricity. Solar street lights have attached solar panels that use the energy from the sun to charge the light.

What Are the Components of a Solar Street Light?

Solar street lights can have different components depending on the manufacturer, product type, and style. However, these lighting solutions have five main parts that allow them to function properly.

Photovoltaic Panel

This component is considered the most important part of a solar street light because it is responsible for converting solar energy into electricity. There are various kinds of photovoltaic panels. However, the most common ones are monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and amorphous solar panels.

Light Fixture

The light fixture refers to the bulb or main source of illumination. Most modern solar street lights are fitted with LED bulbs because of their high energy efficiency and light output. According to EnGoPlanet Energy Solutions Inc., LED fixtures consume at least 50% less energy than high pressure sodium ones, which are typically used in traditional street lights.

Rechargeable Battery

All the electricity generated by the solar panel during the day is stored in the rechargeable battery of the solar street light. This component will then provide power to the light fixture at night. In order to prolong the lifespan and reliability of the battery, its capacity and performance must be configured properly.

Controller

This component is what allows the solar street light to turn on and off when needed. Most controllers are programmable, so users can set their preferred charging and operating times.

Pole

The pole serves as the base of the solar street light. All other components are either mounted or installed into the pole, which is why it is usually made of durable materials. To ensure that the solar street light covers an appropriate area of the ground, the height and size of the pole must be measured to fit the space. Some poles also include mounting brackets so that the light fixture illuminates the right area.

What Are the Types of Solar Street Lights in the Philippines?

The type of solar street light you should get will primarily depend on the place you want to put it in. The ideal lighting system in an urban area without much sun will be drastically different from the one in a rural space with a lot of sunlight.

Structural Design

Most solar street lights currently in operation follow one of two designs. The main difference between the two is how the components of the street light fit together in the system.

Split-Type Solar Street Lights

With split-type solar street lights, the photovoltaic panel is separate from the lighting fixture. The panel is usually mounted on top of the pole and above the fixture, so bigger panels can be installed for units that require more power.

Since this type of solar street light has several separate components, installation is often more complicated and expensive. Maintenance is also more difficult because every component has to be checked to determine the problem.

 

Integrated Solar Street Lights

This type is also known as an all-in-one solar street light because all the components are in one box. An integrated solar street light is extremely convenient to install because it can be mounted onto a new or existing pole. Its compact design also makes it lighter and sleeker.

Since integrated solar street lights only have one main component, installation can be completed in a shorter amount of time. The maintenance process is also very easy because users can simply send the entire unit to the maintenance facility or factory.

System

There are different ways a solar street light can get the electricity it needs to function. The type of setup you use can greatly affect how much you have to pay for your electricity bill. 

Grid-Tied Systems

For this type of system, the solar street lights are still connected to the main utility grid. The additional power generated by the solar panels is simply used to offset electricity costs. Users can also switch between the two sources depending on their needs.

Off-Grid Systems

Off-grid solar lighting systems are completely disconnected from the utility grid, so the lights only use energy produced by the solar panels. In this type of system, all the electricity is stored in the battery of the solar street light.

Battery Backup Systems

Similar to a grid-tied system, this type of solar lighting setup is still connected to the main utility grid. However, the battery backup serves as storage for electricity that can be used in case of emergencies, such as power outages.

Hybrid Systems

As its name implies, hybrid solar lighting systems combine off-grid and grid-tied features. These types of solar street lights utilize solar energy as the primary power source and connect to the grid only when necessary. The system will typically only use electricity from the grid when the battery runs out of energy.

How Do Solar Street Lights Work?

Solar street lights are made of cutting-edge technology that allows them to illuminate our communities. Each unit goes through a complex daily cycle to give us the lights we need at night.

First, the solar cells in the photovoltaic panel absorb energy from the sun during the daytime and convert it into electricity. The generated power will then get stored in the battery until dark. Photoresistors found in all solar street lights detect the amount of light present, so when the sun goes down, the fixtures gradually turn on.

At night, the street lights will utilize the electricity stored in the battery to power the bulbs. The unit will then power off once the photoresistor detects that it is already bright outside.

What Are Solar Street Lights Used For?

Traditional street lights can be used for various applications. The units used for these projects can be replaced with solar street lights to create more sustainable and environmentally friendly spaces.

Commercial

The primary function of these lighting solutions is to illuminate public roads and highways. However, they can also be used for other commercial properties such as airports, parking lots, hotels, hospitals, schools, and much more.

Residential

Solar street lights can be installed inside residential areas, such as subdivisions and gated communities, for added security. With enough space, these fixtures can also be used in backyards, gardens, and garages.

Industrial

Another common application of solar street lights is outside industrial areas, including manufacturing plants and construction sites. These lights can also be used as security lighting outside warehouses and other storage facilities.
