Neelux 60 Watt Solar Flood Light
- Pollution reduction and energy saving:
There is a global awareness now amongst people and authorities regarding the importance of using resource-efficient and environmentally-friendly energy sources. Solar streetlights use no fuel to operate and work purely on solar energy. Solar energy is unlimited and imperishable and is the perfect green lighting solution. Non-renewable energy sources like coal, gas, oil, etc. can eventually run out. People are becoming conscious of the fact that the use of solar lights helps in reducing the carbon footprints of individuals, homes, and businesses.
Solar streetlights are a better investment option considering the capital plus the operation and maintenance costs. Since these lights are dependent on solar energy, there is no need to pay for your electricity every month. Compared to traditional street lights, solar street lights offer long-term benefits. The lights are wireless and independent of any utility grid so no operational costs are incurred in the installation of these lights. Since no manual intervention is needed after the installation, you may save money in maintenance costs also. It is important to also remember that solar street lights are capable of illuminating throughout the night irrespective of power cuts and harsh weather conditions.
- No complicated power facilities:
Solar streetlights are independent in nature and are not connected to your electricity provider. There is only very minimal cabling required to connect the solar panel to the luminary and there are no external wires used outside or at the base of the pole, so they do not pose any threats of accidents. Overheating, electrocutions or strangulation are out of the question when it comes to solar street lights.
Usually, commercial power lighting projects are time-consuming and complicated since they involve foundation work of cables, digging, cable pipe laying, cable threading inside pipes, and ditching landfill. All these procedures require a lot of labor and equipment. Moreover, there are additional costs on the transformer, distribution cabinet, and switchboard also. However, each solar lighting system is an independent unit and do not need any trenching, cable laying or other similar procedures, saving time, money and labor.
- No interdependency weaknesses:
Traditional grid electricity uses a high level of interdependency. Interdependency of cables simply means problems in one area can affect many other connected cables and affect the whole power supply. This is not a concern at all in solar street lighting as each unit is an independent power-generating system and if one light does not work, you need to check and fix that single unit only.
- No cable costs or cable theft:
Cable theft is a common problem in remote areas and laying cables and transportation of materials to those areas can cost you dearly. These issues can be completely avoided when the traditional lights are replaced by a solar lighting system. Since each unit is independent and free from any cable connection, there will be no cable to steal. In case a solar-related theft occurs, it will not affect the operation of any other unit in the system. This helps in reducing any potential losses to a minimum.
- Intelligent control, easy installation and maintenance:
Solar street lighting uses an impressive dusk-to-dawn feature and is controlled by built-in intelligence. The whole installation process is simple and time-saving. The procedure requires only basic stools and minimum labor, making the process safe and economic. Compared to conventional street lights, solar street lights require very minimal maintenance. Apart from cleaning and doing a few inspections once in a while, there is nothing much to do to ensure its longevity.
- Available in wide ranges:
Solar lighting technology has evolved over the years and researchers and scientists are still working towards making the panels more effective. In the future years, solar panels prices are expected to be less expensive. There is a variety of solar street lights available now with different features, sizes, types, styles, capacities, etc. and are aesthetically designed to suit your functional needs.
