how long do solar street lights last |Huajun

I. Background Introduction

Solar street lamps, as an environmentally friendly and energy-saving lighting equipment, are widely used in the field of outdoor lighting. In the business sector, there is a great demand in the market for customized all in one solar street light. However, many people are concerned that the cost of customized solid led street light is too high and the quality cannot be guaranteed. This article will explore the lifespan of solar street lights and provide professional advice and guidance for users.

II. Structure of Solar Street Light

In explaining the service life of solar street lights money, we need to understand the structure of personalized solar lights. Solar street light is mainly composed of solar panel, battery, LED light source and control system.

2.1 Solar panel

As the core component of solar street light, solar panel is responsible for converting solar energy into DC electrical energy.

2.2 Battery

The electrical energy generated by the panel is stored in the battery for nighttime lighting.

2.3 LED light source

The most important part of the solar street light is the LED light source. Solar street lights generally use LED light source, LED lighting effect is better and lower energy consumption.

2.4 Control system

The control system is the brain of the solar street light, which intelligently controls the switch and brightness of the solar street light according to the ambient light conditions and time. It generally adopts microprocessor control, which can realize the functions of automatic switching, brightness adjustment and fault protection.

III. Lifetime of solar panels

3.1 Types of solar panels

There are three main types of solar panels: monocrystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous silicon. Monocrystalline silicon solar panels are made of a single crystalline silicon material, which has high conversion efficiency and a long lifespan. Polycrystalline silicon solar panels are made of multiple crystalline silicon materials, which have a relatively low conversion efficiency but are less costly. Amorphous silicon solar panels, on the other hand, are made of amorphous silicon material and have a lower conversion efficiency.

The lifespan of the three different panels varies, with monocrystalline panels being more durable. Huajun Lighting Fixture Factory prefers monocrystalline silicon solar panels when customized solar powered led street lights.

3.2 Factors affecting the life of solar panels

The life of solar panels is affected by a variety of factors, including temperature, humidity and ultraviolet radiation.

Temperature: Higher temperatures accelerate the rate of chemical reactions in solar panels, leading to material aging and reduced battery performance. Therefore, higher temperatures will shorten the life of solar panels.

Humidity: High humidity environments may lead to corrosion, oxidation and electrolyte loss within the panel, thus affecting the performance and life of the solar panel.

Ultraviolet radiation: solar panels under prolonged ultraviolet radiation will gradually deplete the photoelectric conversion efficiency and reduce the life expectancy.

3.3 Methods and Suggestions for Extending the Life of Solar Panels

In order to extend the life of solar panels, the following measures can be taken:

Keep clean: Clean the surface of the solar panel regularly to remove dirt and dust to ensure sufficient light absorption and improve conversion efficiency.

Regular inspection and maintenance: Regularly check the connection lines, plugs and connectors of solar panels to ensure that they work properly, and repair or replace damaged parts in time.

Avoid excessive temperature: When designing and installing solar panels, heat dissipation measures should be considered to avoid excessive temperature.

Waterproof and moisture-proof: Keep the environment around the solar panel dry to prevent moisture intrusion and reduce the risk of corrosion and oxidation.

Add a protective layer: Adding a protective layer to the surface of the solar panel can effectively reduce the damage caused by UV radiation to the panel and extend its life.

IV. Comprehensive Assessment and Life Prediction

According to the solar panel life, battery life, controller, sensor life and lamp life assessment of ordinary lighting solar street lamps on the market, most of the service life in 10-15 years. Because ordinary street light body shell is mostly made of aluminum, the service life will be gradually reduced under the influence of outdoor environmental factors.

And decorative solar street lights manufacturers of Huajun Lighting Lighting Factory production of commercial solar street lights service life of 20 years or so, its light body shell for pe (plastic polyethylene) material, with waterproof and fireproof UV characteristics, while the use of monocrystalline silicon The use of monocrystalline silicon solar panels can extend the service life of the street lights.

V. Summary

The service life of solar street lamps is influenced by multiple factors and requires comprehensive evaluation and management. When choosing custom street lights, you can focus on the internal and external materials of the street lights to predict their lifespan.
