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.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
