Electrical energy has become a scarce and expensive resource. Guided by the changing energy landscape and the need for long-term sustainable solutions, governments, the private sector and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) have been facilitating an alternative green platform to satisfy the global energy demand in a more efficient and environmentally friendly way. Among the many solar street furniture applications, Solar Street Lights have become a reliable substitute for other lighting systems such as LPS, MH and HPS street lights. In terms of energy generation, energy efficiency, reduced pollution and performance, Smart Solar Street Lights can deliver what’s promised by the system.

WHY SMART SOLAR IS BETTER?
Unlike other street lighting systems such as bulbs and halogen lamps, solar street lights have been designed as perfect energy savers, allowing clients to save a lot of money through zero monthly electric bills which they would have to pay if they were using other fluorescent lighting systems. Solar street lighting systems are equipped with a rechargeable battery and a solar panel. During sunny days, the solar panel converts the sun rays into electrical energy that is stored in the battery and used for LED lighting during the night. These off-grid systems require less attention, have a longer life cycle and low maintenance cost, resulting in better performance and increased energy efficiency.
