How do solar streetlights work?

The working principle of solar street lights is to convert solar energy into electrical energy to achieve the lighting effect.

The top of the solar street light is a solar panel, also called a photovoltaic module. The parts of the solar photovoltaic module are composed of monocrystalline silicon. During the day, this monocrystalline silicon absorbs solar energy and converts the solar energy into electrical energy and stores it in a lithium-ion battery. In the control of the solar street light intelligent controller, the solar cell panels are irradiated by sunlight and converted into electrical energy.

During the day, the solar cell components continue to charge the battery pack. At night, the intelligent solar controller transmits the electrical energy to the light source, so the solar street lamp can achieve lighting at night. As a result, the battery pack provides power to power the LED light source.

Because solar street lights generate electricity by absorbing sunlight, solar street lights have no cables, no leakage, and other accidents, and no electricity bills, and rain protection, lightning protection, etc. have been widely used. Many urban main and secondary roads, communities, factories, parks, and tourist attractions have adopted solar street lights.


Secondly, know the full set of components for All in one solar street light.

The complete system of solar street lights consists of High-efficiency solar panels, solar controllers, lithium-ion batteries, street lamp heads (light sources), light poles, and bases.

Then, through the picture below, we can easily understand how the solar street light works.

The advantages of such solar street lights are obvious.

① As a new green power, solar energy is "inexhaustible and inexhaustible", saving a lot of power;

②The installation and operation are simple and convenient, no need to lay cables and many other basic works, only a base is needed to fix;

③The operation and protection cost is low, and it is almost zero after one investment;

④It is economical, energy-saving, and environmentally friendly. It is a clean power that does not consume resources and does not pollute emissions.
