As people continue to study energy, the conversion efficiency of solar cells is also improving. The most widely used solar lights are street lights, which are both convenient and energy-saving. So, what is a solar light? What is the difference between solar light and ordinary light?

What is a solar lamp
Solar panel is the core part of solar lamps and lanterns, and also the most valuable part of solar lamps and lanterns. Its job is to convert solar radiation into electricity or send it to storage batteries. In most solar cells, there are three kinds of monocrystalline silicon solar cells, polycrystalline silicon solar cells and amorphous silicon solar cells.
In the solar lamp, a charge and discharge controller with good performance is essential. In order to prolong the service life of the battery, it is necessary to limit its charging and discharging conditions to prevent the battery from overcharging or deep charging. Where the temperature difference is large, the qualified controller should also have the function of temperature compensation.

What are the differences between solar lamp and ordinary lamp

1. solar lamp and ordinary lamp life comparison
The service life of solar lamps is much higher than that of ordinary electric lamps. For example, the main component of hardware fittings of solar lamps — the service life of solar cell module is 25 years. The average life of low pressure sodium lamp is 18000 hours; The average life of low-voltage high-efficiency three-color CFLS is 6000 hours. The average life of ultra-bright LED is more than 50000 hours. The life of solar energy special battery is below 38AH 2-5 years; 38-150AH for 3-7 years. According to the regulation of “charging the maintenance fee of 6 yuan /㎡ according to the pure residential building area” by the local price bureau, the initial investment of ordinary lamps and lanterns is much higher than that of solar lamps and lanterns. In a word, the characteristics of saving investment in solar lamps are quite obvious by comprehensive comparison.

2.The environmental protection comparison between solar lights and ordinary lights
The solar lamps are low voltage 12-24V, stable voltage, reliable operation and no security risks and is ideal for eco-community and road management.
Ordinary city lights security risks, people are changing aspects of the case, road reconstruction, landscaping construction, abnormal electricity, water and gas pipeline construction and other cross is a big risk environment.

3.The cost comparison of solar lights and ordinary lights
Solar energy lamp investment, long-term benefits, because the circuit is simple, no maintenance cost, no expensive electricity bills. Recover the cost of 6-7 years, and save more than 1 million electricity and maintenance costs after 3-4 years. Hardware Wholesale City of electricity is high, circuit complexity, the need for uninterrupted line of long-term maintenance. Especially in the case of voltage instability, sodium lamp easy to break it was inevitable, and with time, the aging, maintenance costs increase every year.

4.Comparison of installation of solar lights and ordinary lights
The installation of the solar lamp does not require complicated wiring, only the cement base and battery pit within 1m can be fixed with galvanized bolts. The construction process of ordinary electric lights in cities is tedious. First of all, a large amount of construction such as auxiliary cables, ditches laying pipes, threading pipes, and backfilling civil works consume a lot of manpower, material and financial resources. Finally, you have to debug, if something goes wrong, it can be very expensive.

In modern times, solar lamps are the most ideal lighting fixtures, which are convenient and beautiful without polluting the environment. With the improvement of people’s living standards and the continuous development of social science research, solar lamps will be widely used in various regions. In this way, people can also use the light from the sun to the earth. In a way, it is resource reuse.

Bbier is a professional LED street light supplier & manufacturer in China with 10 Years of Development Experience, 50+ Patents, 200+ Certifications. We have Warehouses in California & Florida in USA.

We provide 15w / 20w / 25w / 40w / 50w / 80W / 100W LED street lights, maximum 12000lm, 5700K, IP65 waterproof, 3 years warranty LED solar street lights. Our LED solar street lights use new SMD LED modules, which can generate up to 150 lumens per watt, and only use advanced LED components.
