Street Lighting systems
Solar street lights are raised light source which are powered by photovoltaic panels generally mounted on the lighting structure.
The photovoltaic panels charge a rechargeable battery, which powers LED lamp during the night. Most solar system turn on and turn off automatically by sensing outdoor light.
Solar street lights consist of five main parts (Solar panel, Light fixture, rechargeable battery, Controller, Pole).
The benefits of solar street lighting:
- Solar street lights independent on the utility grid.
- Solar street lights require much less maintenance.
- This is nonpolluting source of electricity.
