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.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
