Advantages and disadvantages of integrated solar street lights

Advantages of integrated solar street lights compared with other solar street lights

The replacement of traditional street lamps by integrated solar street lamps is a trend in recent years. In 2008, the first integrated solar street lamp was introduced, in which the light heads, controllers and batteries of solar street lamps were integrated to simplify the complex street lamp structure; dimension, weight and installation have been greatly improved. As early as 2010, international environmental organizations have used integrated solar street lights instead of traditional solar street lights for post-disaster reconstruction in Sichuan Province, China.

To say the advantages, it is mainly convenient to install, convenient to transport, no power consumption, no land occupation. The integrated solar street light has only two parts in total, and the lamp head and the light pole; greatly improve the transportation efficiency. In addition, the integrated solar street light installation is simple, no engineering team, several people can easily set up without experience needed, greatly reducing the cost of experienced workers.

The disadvantages are still there. The solar power supply is affected by the weather, such as low temperature, rainy days, etc., but now Juho Lighting has developed the low temperature protection function, which can operate normally under temperature below zero degree. Battery life is also one of the shortcomings of solar street lights, but now 8 years maintenance-free batteries have been put into use in integrated solar street lights. So the shortcomings have been greatly weakened. The replacement of traditional roads with integrated solar street lights outweighs the disadvantages.

Advantages of solar street lights compared with traditional street lights

(1) The installation of the traditional street lamp is complicated: in the traditional street lamp project, the cable must be laid first, and a large number of basic projects such as cable trench excavation, underground pipe laying, pipe threading and back-filling are required. Then carry out long-term installation and debugging. If there is any problem with any one line, it will be reworked in a large area. Moreover, terrain and line requirements are complex, and labor cost and auxiliary materials are expensive. Solar street lights are easy to install: when installing solar street lights, there is no need to lay complicated lines. Just make a cement base and fix it with stainless steel screws.

(2) The electricity cost of the traditional street lights is high: the traditional street lamp work needs to pay a fixed high electricity bill, and long-term uninterrupted maintenance or replacement of the line and other components, maintenance costs increase year by year. Solar street lamps are free of electricity: solar street lights are a one-time investment, without any maintenance costs, and long-term benefits.

(3) There are safety hazards in the traditional street lighting: The traditional street lighting in the city will bring many safety hazards in terms of construction quality, renovation of landscape engineering, aging of materials, abnormal power supply, and conflicts between water and electricity pipelines. There is no safety hazard in solar street lights: solar street lights are ultra-low voltage products, which are safe and reliable. Other advantages of solar street lights: green and environmentally friendly.

In summary, Juho solar street lamp has the characteristics of safety, no hidden danger, energy saving, no power consumption, environmental protection, easy installation, automatic control and maintenance-free.Please don’t hesitate to contact Juho if you have street lighting project requirements.
