    3. How Do Solar Street Lamps Know When to Come on?

    A photoresistor (photocell) is a sensor that is attached to the solar street light. The photoresistor stops the light from coming on during the daytime. The battery continues to charge in the daytime.

    As soon as the photoresistor senses little or no light, it lets the battery give the solar street lamp power.

    4. What Is the Lumen Efficiency of a Solar LED Street Light?

    The best solar LED street lights can produce 130lumens/watt on average. It means 20W and 100W solar LED street lights can produce 2600 and 13000 lumens, respectively.

    The increased amount of LED chips on the light increases the lumen efficiency of solar powered street lights. Therefore, some solar street light factory can produce 160, 180, and even 210lm/w such as VST, one of the top solar street light manufacturers.

    5. At What Wattage Does Solar Street Light Work?

    The whole range of solar street lights is available in 8 – 160 watts. Are you thinking, what wattage shall I choose?

    The answer is simple you can choose the wattage of a solar LED street light according to the pole length.

    For example, a 4 – 5-meters high pole is suitable for a 20W solar LED street light. Similarly, an 8-meter-high pole is appropriate for 60W~100W solar powered street lights.

    Tell your project details to your solar street light supplier and they will give you suggestions.
