Brief Overview of the Deployment of Solar Street Lights

by Charles S.

Notably, the conventional street light system in the world and Pakistan to be precise is highly based on sodium-vapor lamps. A lamp will consume approximately 60Watts from the total utility system. The rise in power consumption ultimately impacts the commercial as well as residential sectors by subjecting the world to load-shedding in the peak hours. To reduce the general power consumption and then end up shedding some load from the utility network, LED solar street light for sale is becoming the first option suggested by the planning and development sectors not just in Pakistan but across the world.

The LEDs that have a luminance of about 72 lm against the standard luminance of about 250 watts in the mercury lamp is experiencing a rise in demand.

In the long run, however, the planning scale indicates that the results are promising since the street lights result in 65 percent energy savings.

In order to evaluate and assess the technical as well as the economic feasibility of the solar-powered street lighting, this research conducted by experts in the ministry of energy investigates the general performance and costs of LEDs primarily based in the urban areas of Pakistan and its surroundings.  

The study indicated that the cost of installing the traditional lighting system is about 21.2 million and 5 million for solar lights. On average, or in total, the deployed conventional street lights consumed about 500,457 kilowatts.  

It is important to note that the payback time or ROI suggested for LED lights is five years.

The reliability of these lights and their efficacy are also notable in Pakistan and its economy.

Deployment in China

In China, the development of solar street lights has contributed to the growth in understanding of the applications in business and at home, respectively.

While traditional street lights are designed for illumination, without a concern on the appearances and needs cabling, modern solar lights are the direct opposite.

That is why most businesses and industries in China continue to thrive following the long working hours by business professionals.

Now, reasonably, which one between the two has a higher consumption of power and material resources?

Without a doubt, it is the traditional street light, which is also more involving in terms of installation.

But based on upholding the primary functions of traditional street lights, these new solar street lights can easily optimize the installation as well as appearance.

Other than that, it can save on installation and time. That is why it continues to be the market leader in China’s street lighting industry.

The Powering of Solar Street Lights

The solar street lights have a solar panel mounted on the pole, facing south without shading. This system is connected to a battery that is placed directly under the solar panel assembly. It can also be placed on the lower side of the pole for maintenance.

Final Thoughts

Solar power is progressively gaining popularity since it is a dependable source for lighting across the world. A few benefits associated with these lights include cutting down people’s dependence on conventional energy and the conservation of energy on a national level.
