Solar electricity is becoming increasingly used for lighting streets and other public areas. It’s become a reliable source of street lighting all around the world. Solar street lighting fixtures have a number of advantages, including energy saving, the use of a traditional source of electricity, and less reliance on the national grid. This kind of light may be quite beneficial to tropical regions that receive plenty of sunlight for the most of the year.
Photovoltaic (PV) technology, which uses sunlight to create energy through solar panels, is used in solar-powered lighting systems.
The solar cells or PV cells in the panels capture the sun’s energy and convert it to DC power. They can be fixed on a lamp post or linked in a pole.
The converted power is stored in these solar panels by a rechargeable battery. During the night, this stored energy is used to power the LED lamp. Battery storage can supply enough energy for up to 10 hours of everyday use. A least of 5 days’ worth of backup is provided by the battery.
The solar panels use a light source to consider the impact of weather changes, such as sensing external light and automatically emitting light. For dusk-to-dawn operations, the system generates an automated turn ON/OFF time.
