Solar Energy Lighting

Streetlights powered by solar energy are becoming increasingly popular because they are affordable, simple and safe to install, are easily relocated and they save on electrical costs.

Streetlights powered by solar energy are becoming increasingly popular because they are affordable, simple and safe to install, are easily relocated and they save on electrical costs.


The key electrical components in such lights are solar modules, controller, battery and LED lights. Solar modules convert the sun's rays into electricity, which then charges the battery, which supplies the energy to LED lights at twilight. The controller protects battery life, by avoiding any overcharging or draining of batteries. The key to a perfect combination of solar and LED solar lighting is they both use DC low voltage and need no converters. Moreover, a LED street light uses 50%-60% less power than traditional HPS lamp, with higher CRI (>75), which is more suitable for night time.

Energy saving, solar lighting is good for our environment and to learn more about this green alternative contact Powerway solar mounting and ground screw.

Joyce Dayton Corp - Solar Tracking Drive Solutions

Joyce Solar Actuators are designed to precisely position smaller solar tracking equipment. Their robust and efficient DC motor (24V or 36V) keeps power consumption to a minimum. Travel speeds remain nearly constant regardless of the load. Ideal for rugged environments common to the solar industry, these cost-effective SA actuators have an IP65 protection rating. Self-locking features in the mechanism ensure that the solar actuator will hold position throughout the daily tracking cycle. Specifications: • Double clevis mounting for easy installation • Clutch for overload protection • Adjustable limit switches for flexible travel settings • Reed sensor digital feedback for accurate positioning • Duty cycle is 25% (4 min. running, 12 min. rest) • Lubricated for life
