Solar street light is a new type of energy-saving and environmentally friendly street light.
It does not retain garbage and does not affect nature. Therefore, many urban lighting projects currently prefer solar street lights.
However, there are often customer feedback that the solar street light’s light suddenly goes off,
which is suspected to be a quality problem of the street light.
In fact, except for a small number of quality issues, most of the reasons are due to your incorrect installation method.
Let’s take a look at the following six wrong installation methods:
1.Install in a place with many obstructions
The working principle of solar street light is that the battery panel absorbs the sun and stores it in the battery during the daytime.
At night, the battery will convert sunlight into electricity and supply power to the streetlight.
At this time, the light will be on.
But then again, solar panels can only store electricity if they absorb sunlight.
If a street light is installed in a place with many obstructions,
such as being blocked by many trees or buildings, it will not absorb sunlight.
So the lights won’t light up or the brightness will be dim.
2.Install near other light sources
Solar street lights have their own control system that can recognize daylight and daylight.
If another power source is installed next to the solar street light,
when the other power source is on,
the solar street light system will think it is daylight, and it will not turn on at this time.
3.The solar panel is installed under other shelters
We all know that solar panels are composed of multiple strings of cells. If one of the strings is not exposed to sunlight for a long time,
this group of cells is equivalent to useless.
The same is true.
If a solar street light is installed in a place,
there is a certain obstruction in that area that blocks a certain area of the solar panel.
If this area is not exposed to sunlight for a long time, it cannot be converted into electricity.
The battery in that area is also equivalent to a short circuit.
4. Install lights on both sides of the highway, with solar panels tilting face to face
It should be very common to install lights on both sides of the highway,
but there will also be a problem that the sunlight will only rise from the east.
If the street lights on one side are facing east and the street lights on the other side are facing west,
then there is There may be one side facing away from the sun,
which will not absorb sunlight because it is not oriented correctly.
The correct installation method should be that the solar panels face the same,
and the solar panels on both sides can absorb sunlight.
5.Solar street lights for indoor charging
Some customers install solar street lights in carports or other indoor spaces because it is convenient for lighting.
However, if it is installed indoors, the solar street light will not be effective,
because its battery panel is completely blocked and cannot absorb sunlight.
Without sunlight, it can be converted into electricity and it cannot be illuminated.
If solar street lights are to be installed indoors,
solar panels and lights can be installed separately to allow the battery panels to be charged outdoors and the lights to be illuminated indoors.
Of course, we can also choose other lighting for indoor lighting.
