On any street of the city, you’re likely to see street lights. These public infrastructures are extremely useful sources of light, especially at night when there aren’t much light sources around. The light at least help you navigate while walking, while driving and so on.
The light source of solar LED street light is LED chip. LED chip works with little current and much more bright than conventional light source. It can last for as long as 50, 000 hours.
You may see street lights in various rural areas or areas, where there is no electrical grids. What’s up with that? In this case, you should encounter solar LED street lights.
1. So, how does a solar LED street light work?
- Solar panel absorbs solar energy during daytime, and then covert the solar energy into electrical energy, which is stored in battery.
- During night time, the solar panel stops the conversion process. The solar LED street light starts automatically and consumes the electrical energy stored in the battery.
If there is movement detected by motion sensor of the Solar LED Street Light, the light will work on 100% power:
If no movement detected, the solar LED street light will work on lower power (Such as 50% power, customized)
During day time, the battery gets recharged and the process keeps on repeating:
2. Where the solar LED street light used?
- Rural areas
- Urban streets
- Parking lot
With the above, you hopefully now have a basis understand of how solar LED street lights work and where to use. The portable and environment-friendly feature of solar LED street lights make them a good replacement for conventional street lights, and especially a sound solution as well for areas without access to an electrical grid.
