Renewable energy, such as wind, solar, and water, is becoming more popular. People’s use of nonrenewable energy is gradually decreasing. A carbon-neutral strategy has been developed by countries led by China. We can say that renewable energy is the way of the future. In the outdoor lighting industry, solar street lamps perform admirably. They have innumerable advantages: they are clean, environmentally friendly, and cost effective. The solar street lamps use no electricity and are powered by renewable solar energy. Solar lighting products include integrated all-in-one solar street lamps and split solar street lamps. Many people prefer integrated solar street lamps because of their numerous advantages.
The integrated street lamp combines photovoltaic solar panels, a battery, a controller, and a light source into a single lamp holder. It is appropriate for use in streets and lanes, communities, factories, rural areas, county streets, village streets, and other locations. The benefits of integrated solar street lamps are self-evident. To begin with, in terms of installation and use, customers can simply install a few screws per the instructions and fix the product before using it without any professional knowledge. It is very convenient and saves money on installation. If it needs to be repaired, simply remove the lamp cap and return it to the street lamp manufacturer.
Second, the price difference is obvious. The solar panel power and battery capacity are generally limited due to design reasons, and the cost will be lower. It also saves money on the costs of installing and repairing photovoltaic solar panels, as well as the cost of the battery box. The price is lower when compared to split solar street lights. The majority of integrated solar street lamps are used in areas with low lighting requirements. It has a long useful life. It is a high-tech product with a high content of technology. The control system and some accessories are of reasonable quality.
The split solar street light has a design that separates solar panels, batteries, and LED light sources. The required power of the required led street light can be calculated based on the lighting occasion. The power range is greater than that of the integrated street light, allowing it to meet the needs of a variety of customers. It can be matched with photovoltaic solar panels and batteries of sufficient capacity to meet the requirements of LED street lights. It not only ensures the service life solar LED street lights, but also makes maintenance and replacement easier.
The installation speed will have an impact on the project costs. Before we can install the split-type solar streetlights, we need to dig pits for the pole foundation and battery box. Then we’ll have to put in solar panels, LED street lights, a light controller, and repair all of the kits. Finally, the entire system must be wired. Installing integrated solar streetlights is as simple as three steps. The installation is complete after digging the cage, tightening the screws on the lights, and erecting the pole. It takes about 1-1.5 hours to install a split-type solar streetlight. The integrated solar power system includes a solar panel, LED lamp, battery and smart sensor.
When something goes wrong with traditional split-type solar streetlights, manufacturers must dispatch technical personnel to a nearby repair shop. They must troubleshoot the battery, photovoltaic panels, LED lighting, wires, and other components. If the maintenance worker does not bring enough spare parts, the process will take much longer. Due to the high costs, some factories, on the other hand, are unwilling to send technical workers to installation sites. Customers who purchase all-in-one solar powered street lamps only need to send the entire integrated solar lamp to the factory for maintenance, which is a very simple and convenient process.
The split type solar street lamps use lead acid batteries, whereas the integrated all-in-one solar street lamps use lithium batteries. In our lamp, we use a Level A standard lithium battery, which is nearly 100 percent efficient in both charge and discharge. It will have a 5-fold longer lifespan than lead-acid batteries, as well as charging depth protection. It will greatly increase the battery’s lifespan to 8 years. Lithium batteries deliver higher-quality performance in a smaller, lighter, safer package. Lithium-ion batteries are a much cleaner and more environmentally friendly technology.
The larger the area of the same battery panel, the higher the photoelectric conversion efficiency, and the capacity of the battery is proportional to the volume. As a result, the volume of integrated led solar street lights is limited, as are the area and volume of the battery panel. As a result, it is not appropriate for some locations with relatively high lighting requirements, and it can only be used in locations with low configuration requirements. The split solar streetlight can be used in a variety of situations. From the comparison above, we can tell the difference between an all-in-one led solar street light and a split-type light.
Split-type solar streetlights are significantly more expensive, costing 40-60% more than integrated all-in-one solar streetlights.
Installing an all-in-one solar street light is simple and saves time
The installation of integrated all-in-one solar lamps is very simple and quick. Skilled workers can complete all of the installation processes in less than 5 minutes. If you have a large solar street light project, and split solar street lights necessitate a gel battery pit, and gel batteries are hung on sole light poles. When the construction project deadline is rushed, this complicated installation method becomes a major issue. As a result, an integrated all-in-one solar street light can reduce installation errors; speed up construction, and save labor costs, giving it a competitive advantage over split-type solar lamps.
The all-in-one solar street light has a low total cost
The total cost is divided into two parts. The first is the cost of labor. Based on the data presented above, we can conclude that the longer the installation time, the higher the labor costs. As a result, the contractor will prefer a lower-cost method. Another component of the cost is the cost of solar street light batteries. The gel battery used in split-type solar outdoor lights is bulky and pollutes the environment, rather than providing clean energy. For example, 100W split street lights require 180AH batteries that must be paired with 330W solar panels, whereas 100W all-in-one solar street lights require only a 39Ah LiFepo4 battery and a 140w solar panel.
Solar street lights that are all-in-one are more intelligent
Intelligent MPPT controllers are commonly used in integrated solar lamps. The controller may intelligently adopt time control and/or human induction modes based on big data analysis and human flow judgment. When people are close to the light, the light is at full power, and when there is no movement, the light power can automatically adjust to 30%.However, for a split-type solar street light with a 100 percent luminance output configuration, nearly half of the night is wasted. In conclusion, integrated solar street lights are becoming increasingly popular and will become a future trend. When compared to split solar street lights, they are a better investment. In terms of price, life-span, installation, and maintenance costs, integrated solar street lights outperform separate solar street lights. As a result, an increasing number of people are opting for Integrated Solar Street Lights.
