Solar panel cost

Regarding the cost of various components of solar street light prices, the panel undoubtedly accounts for the majority. The price of the panel is mainly affected by its own material. Commonly used ones include amorphous silicon, polycrystalline silicon and amorphous silicon.

Among them, the photoelectric conversion efficiency of monocrystalline silicon is higher, and the price is also higher.

It has a perfect dimming function, good lighting effect, comfortable for the eyes, energy saving and environmental protection. During the lighting process, it does not release carbon dioxide like high pressure sodium lamps. It is very friendly to the environment and has a longer lifespan than some other light sources. Needless to say, you have to consider changing the light source after using it, which actually saves costs.

Therefore, it is recommended to choose the appropriate LED light source according to the lighting environment of the solar street light. Do not choose other general light sources for temporary cheapness.

Battery cost

In the overall cost of solar street lights, although it is not as high as the proportion of panels, the cost of batteries is not small. Its quality has a direct impact on the length of lighting time and brightness of the street lights.

The batteries used in current street lights are all lithium batteries. Compared with the lead-acid batteries of the past, they have obvious advantages in terms of discharge depth and charging time. They can also adapt to the environment better, so the solar street light prices will be higher.

Light pole cost

The cost of light poles is also an important factor in determining the overall price of solar street lights. Different materials, different processes, and different heights have a great impact on the price of the light poles themselves. For example, aluminum is more expensive than steel light poles, and for steel light poles, hot-dip galvanized light poles are more expensive than cold-dip galvanized light poles. You must pay attention when purchasing.

Brand influence
