Solar Street Light Solutions
The perfect & cost-effective solution for residential streets, parking lots, security, roadways & general area lighting applications
Apollo Commitment: “Providing self-sufficient street lighting solutions where it’s needed most”
Solar Street Light Solutions are the perfect & cost-effective solution for residential streets, parking lots, security, roadways & general area lighting applications. Solar Street lighting is economically viable & efficient in applications, where the cost of providing electricity is expensive or problematic. Due to low power consumption & very long lifespan, solar LED street lights are a good alternative to existing LPS (Low Pressure Sodium) or MH (Metal Halide) lamps.
The solar Street light solutions contain the solar panels which convert solar power to electric current which can be stored in the battery for use later. A controller controls the ‘day to dawn switching’ which enables solar lights to automatically switch on at evening times.
One can go for a Standalone / Off-grid Street Light systems or Grid-based Systems.Grid based systems – In this type of a system there is a large solar grid array that is used to supply the power to all the different street poles.
In the grid-based systems, a large solar grid array that is used to supply the power to all the different street poles and there is no need for battery backup. In the case of Off-grid Street light systems, the power comes entirely from the solar power electricity generated from the solar panels of the street light pole. A battery backup enables the power to be stored to be used later on.
In the case of Off-grid Street light systems, the power comes entirely from the solar power electricity generated from the solar panels of the street light pole. A battery backup enables the power to be stored to be used later on.
Apollo Renewables range of street lighting systems are completely self-contained, require no electricity line extensions & maintenance-free, making ideal where utility power is unreliable or un-economical. Apollo Renewables provides complete outdoor lighting systems & solutions with various lights, bulk heads, solar modules, solar charge controllers, batteries & poles.
The Solar Street light enables large savings in power over the long term since it uses free solar power instead of the grid power whose rates keep increasing over time. It also requires minimal maintenance and is a viable solution for the government and commercial establishments to reap the benefits.
Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)
Solar Street Lighting is the system where Solar Energy is used to light streets compared to using grid power to power street lights. Ensure that The solar panels are installed in a shadow free area for maximum solar exposure.
The solar panels are installed on a pole in a shadow free area for maximum solar exposure. Solar PV panels consist of solar cells that convert sunlight into electricity. Electricity thus produced is stored in the batteries to be used at night. The Charge controller manages the transfer of current to the battery ensuring its not overcharged or drained and proper voltage is supplied to the battery.
The advantages of Solar Street light are:
Works independent of the grid power, hence reduces costs.
Environment friendly – Reduced Carbon footprint
The different components of Solar Street lighting are:
Solar Charge controller
Yes. Solar lights can be monitored remotely based on the defined lighting profiles, light levels set in the remote managing software.
It depends on how much power gets stored in the Battery. The amount of power stored in the battery depends on the sunlight received.
Maintenance required for Solar Street lights is very less. Occasional cleaning of the solar panels helps clear dirt and other materials that can reduce the efficiency of the Solar panels.
There are 2 kinds of Solar Street light systems
Standalone Systems – These kind of systems have individual solar panels per pole to collect solar light and convert it into electricity. THey use batteries to store power or electricity from the solar panels.
Grid Based systems – These kind of systems use a large central solar grid to power a number of solar street poles or solar street lights.
