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.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
