Difference between solar street light and traditional street light

Main features: Solar street lights are powered by high-efficiency single crystal (polycrystalline) silicon solar cells, stored by maintenance-free sealed batteries, illuminated by high-efficiency and low-voltage energy-saving lamps dedicated to solar energy, and equipped with advanced charge and discharge control circuits, featuring reliable performance, high luminous efficiency and convenient installation. It is safe, reliable, energy-saving, economical, environment-friendly, practical and long-lived (solar cells can be used for more than 20 years and storage batteries for 3-5 years) without laying cables and wires, saving electric energy and electricity charges. According to the configuration, model, lighting conditions and service time, the solar street lamp can be fully charged for 3-7 days. Solar street lamps belong to the green energy products that are strongly advocated and utilized in today’s society. It is mainly used for lighting and lighting decoration of urban roads, residential roads, industrial parks, green belts, squares, pedestrian streets, fitness and leisure squares and other places. With the increasing scarcity of the earth’s resources, the investment cost of basic energy is rising day by day, and various hidden dangers of safety and pollution are everywhere. Solar energy, as an inexhaustible, safe and environmentally friendly new energy, has been paid more and more attention. In this way, solar lighting products came into being. Here we make a practical comparison between the effects of solar street lamps and electric street lamps.

Through a lot of practice, the following six basic conclusions can be drawn:
1. In terms of the product itself, the cost of solar lights and lanterns is higher than that of ordinary lamps and lanterns;
2.If the costs incurred during the entire construction process are taken into account, the initial investment for installing solar lamps is slightly higher than that of ordinary lamps.
3. The larger the scale, the higher the related costs of installing ordinary lamps, and the initial investment will be higher than that of solar lamps;
4. The operating cost of ordinary lamps is obviously higher than that of solar lamps, and it will be higher and higher (electricity, labor, etc.).
5. The safety of solar lamps is very high, and there is no potential safety hazard like ordinary electric lamps.
6. Social benefit analysis:
It is a good thing that a technology and a product have economic benefits, but its vitality is directly related to whether it adapts to social development and whether it has social benefits beyond other products. The emergence of solar energy technology and products meets the needs of social development and meets the requirements of energy conservation and environmental protection. The social benefits brought by it are unmatched by ordinary products. The life of solar lamps is much higher than that of ordinary electric lamps. For example, the main components of solar lamps-solar cell modules have a service life of more than 20 years; The life of LED is 80,000 hours; The life of solar special lead-acid battery is 5 years.
Although the construction of ordinary street lamps solves the employment of some people and the development of supporting enterprises, it has caused a lot of waste of resources: waste of human resources, waste of power resources, waste of metal resources, environmental pollution, and affect the air , Water pollution, human life span and living space, etc.

Install When installing solar street lamps, there is no need to lay complicated lines, just make a cement base and fix it with stainless steel screws. In the electric lighting project, there are complicated operating procedures. First, cables must be laid. Here, a large number of basic works such as excavation of cable trenches, laying of concealed pipes, threading in the pipes, and backfilling must be carried out. Then carry out a long-term installation and debugging, if any of the lines has a problem, a large area of rework is required. Moreover, the terrain and lines require complex, labor and auxiliary materials are costly
Cost Electricity-free for solar street lamps: solar lighting lamps are a one-time investment without any maintenance cost, and the investment cost can be recovered in three to five years,  and long-term benefits. High electricity cost for electric street lights: there is a fixed and high electricity cost in the work of electric lighting lamps, so the maintenance or replacement of lines and other configurations should be carried out continuously for a long time, and the maintenance cost is increasing year by year.
Safety Solar street lights have no safety hazards: solar lights are 12V, 24V ultra-low voltage products, which are safe and reliable in operation. Green and environmental protection can add new selling points to the development and promotion of the noble ecological community; Sustainably reduce the cost of property management and reduce the cost of owners’ public share. Electric street lamps have potential safety hazards: electricity; Due to the construction quality, landscape engineering renovation, aging materials, abnormal power supply, conflict between water and electricity pipelines, etc.,and conflicts between water and electricity pipelines.
Comprehensive The inherent characteristics of solar lighting, such as no hidden danger, energy saving, no consumption, environmental protection, simple installation, automatic control and maintenance-free, will directly bring obvious advantages to the sales of real estate and the construction of municipal engineering.
