What is the quality of Cmoonlight's solar street lights?
Solar street lights are made up of a frame made up of many high-lumen LEDs housed in a weatherproof housing. A solar panel (of varying types and strengths depending on the model) is attached to the back of the streetlight and is wired directly into a battery contained within the main unit. The solar panel will be made up of polycrystalline or monocrystalline photovoltaic cells. When exposed to sunlight, a chemical in these cells reacts to produce volts of electricity. The volts generated during the day are transferred to the battery, where they are stored until nightfall, when they can be used to power the lights.
Most solar street lights use this simple, efficient system, which is controlled by sensors that detect a loss of light and automatically turn on the lights. In other words, these units are designed to turn on (and use their stored electricity) at dusk and turn off (and begin generating electricity again) at dawn. Many solar street lights also include a remote control, allowing you to override the automatic mechanism or set up manual timers to control its operation.
More solar street lights are being installed around the world, and they are gradually taking over as the preferred method of nighttime illumination, but what are the differences? Why are solar street light systems now being used instead of bringing in power and using a traditional street light? Here are some of the differences and reasons for the popularity of these new systems. Off-grid and grid-tied solar street light systems are available from the top 10 solar street light manufacturers. Off-grid solar lights do not require grid power and generate their own self-sustaining power on each pole, resulting in a zero electric bill for the life of the system.
Grid-connected solar lighting systems connect solar panels to the power grid. These systems are typically sized for NET Zero system design, which means that they generate enough power during the day to offset the electrical usage of the lights at night. Both solar street light system designs take into account a variety of project factors, such as available sunlight, required lighting levels, spacing, fixture wattage, and backup power (off grid only).
Most modern solar-powered street lights have solar LED lights attached to them or built into them. LEDs can be coloured to achieve the desired CRI, making them as close to sunlight as possible and, as a result, increasing night-time visibility. Traditional street lights typically use metal halide lamps, which fall far short of the visibility provided by solar-LED street lights. Traditional street lights have long failed to meet any of these criteria. A metal halide lamp rated at 250-400 watts is typically used inside a traditional Cobrahead fixture.
Spacing, light levels, and even power consumption are not taken into account. As technology advances and public awareness of climate change and energy conservation grows, things are starting to change. Even traditional street lights are beginning to take into account what the solar lighting industry has been doing for decades with new pole installations.
One of the best features of this solar street light is the wide range of wattage options available, ranging from 100W to 1000W. This is ideal for people who have varying lighting requirements. This model has two lighting modes: bright white and warm white, both of which can be adjusted to full brightness.
The high-tech monocrystalline silicon solar panel with an integrated photoelectric sensor ensures excellent solar energy retention, and the adjustable height is ideal for illuminating large areas. Once charged, it will stay lit throughout the night without the need for manual ignition because it turns on when it detects motion.
Traditional street lights are gradually being phased out in favour of newer LED fixtures that require far less maintenance and provide greater energy efficiency. Low-wattage fixtures can now easily replace older-style fixtures. Furthermore, with new LED technology, optics can be used to provide task-specific lighting on the ground, as opposed to old-style refractors that simply blast light in all directions.
In comparison, what does it all mean? If you have grid-connected electrical lights, switching to LED fixtures and even installing solar panels to feed the grid during the day is the most cost-effective way to offset or reduce your power consumption. Off grid solar lighting systems are the way to go if you are working on a new project or in an area where grid power does not exist or is difficult to bring in.
Traditionally, various types of fixtures were used; however, with LEDs becoming more widely available in various fixtures, the use of more decorative style fixtures is now possible with solar lighting applications. Solar LEDs typically have a power range of 20 to 50 watts and produce the same amount of light as high-powered fixtures. LEDs produce more light and provide greater visibility than previous technologies, while their long life reduces maintenance requirements.
Finally, understanding your needs and the cost differences between going solar, NET Zero, and installing traditional electrical lights will assist you in deciding on the best course of action. The use of LED fixtures in all new installations ensures that the least amount of power is consumed while producing the best light levels. It's incredible how far technology has progressed in the last few decades; I can't wait to see where it will be in the next 10 to 20 years.
