Solar lights aren’t just for gardens and patios, they are also used for street lighting!

When you think of solar lights, you may have visions of those lights found around homes and gardens that put out enough light to show you where they are and illuminate just a little bit of area around them on the ground. Furthermore, they usually charge enough to last only one night. So, if it is cloudy or rainy the following day, they may not emit as much free light as after that first full-day’s charge. Well, there are solar lights out there that are powerful enough to compete (and surpass) with the scale up to traditional street lights. SolTek Renewables is a company that supplies these powerhouses to customers around the globe.

With each light containing all of its own components to be stand-alone units, they are a practical and economic solution that are finding their way onto city streets and parking lots, eventually saving users (taxpayers) millions in electricity usage fees by going off-grid entirely. These solar lights are so efficient that they maintain system autonomy for anywhere between 3-6 days (typically longer). This means that if they charge under one day’s requirement (between 2-4 hours) of sunlight, then they will continue to illuminate as specified for 6 nights under total cloud cover. In regions such as the Southwest, a week with no sun is a rare occurrence. Additionally, the solar panels are efficient enough to gather some charge even under cloud cover. So, there is no stopping these street lights from operating as a serious contender to grid-tied lights. Users are guaranteed that the lights use renewable energy (local utilities can’t guarantee that 100% of their electricity comes from renewable resources) and that each light has a zero-carbon footprint.

The wave of the future is keeping things local. And solar street lights do just that. Just another way to make things work for the better and progress into a positive future.

Solar on!
