Solar street lights can be deployed in no time. They will provide years of operation and require minimum maintenance. Thanks to the use of LEDs, efficient solar panels and reliable batteries solar street lights can run for several day of bad weather.
Solar street lights give you a very clear idea about what can be achieved with solar energy. They consist of a solar panel, rechargeable battery, solar charge controller and LEDs.
Solar powered street lights can be equipped with photocells for dusk to dawn operation or timers to control the lighting duration.
The Solar Gen2 solar-powered LED-based street light is competitive with grid-based street lights and delivers 98% power-conversion efficiency from the photovoltaic cells to battery.
NXP Semiconductors has developed an innovative, sustainable and highly efficient solar-powered street lighting solution, together with Philips Lighting. The groundbreaking Solar Gen2 solution, demonstrated by NXP at CES 2012, could have a major impact…
Solar street lights are a judicious choice for parking lots, parks, highways, roads airports, area lighting and many other public, private and military sites.
Some solar street lamps can run at low power when no activity is detected underneath. They will switch back to full illumination as soon as movement is detected.
