Solar Street Lights: a Wealth of Versatility in Modern Technology

We're sure you're familiar with solar energy. It's been used over the past several decades to power plenty of apparatus - calculators, watches, battery chargers, plenty of stuff. But what you may not realize is solar energy is being used in some of the most mundane (but necessary) technologies that we don't even realize are around until they're gone.

Solar energy is fantastic in the application of solar street lights because it's clean, abundant, and it helps people see when they're not able to. This extensive introduction to solar LED lights will demonstrate the many ways that these modern marvels of technology are fantastic for any place that needs lighting. We've been in the business for decades and are prepared to show you how solar energy can turn dark places into shining examples of the future - how green energy saves money, protects us from harm, and reduces the carbon footprint for future generations.

This 12-minute read is comprehensive, but we'll make it just as entertaining as it is informative! Read on!Application of Solar Street Lights: Many Ways to Light Up the NightParks and RecreationIt wasn't even a year ago that a lighting project in Phillips Landing, located in Laurel, Delaware became a strong example of how solar LED lights can really pack a punch for parks and recreational areas. A nature park a little distant from neighboring communities was in desperate need of rejuvenation. A lot of boaters and fishers would commute to the area in the early hours of the morning to get their catch for the day, but they were always hampered by darkness since there wasn't sufficient lighting in the area.

Flashlights helped, but something centralized and stronger was needed for the boat ramps for the nature park. After much deliberation, city and park officials banded together to revamp the park amenities. They turned to Greenshine for a solution.

It turns out the lights that Greenshine installed were a perfect application of solar street lights for the nature park. The nearest power source for the park was about a mile away, and trenching for power just wasn't a viable option practically nor financially. The project was reaching over a million dollars already, and so cost-effective solutions were on the radar.

The lights needed to be self-sufficient and free of ties to the power grid. Greenshine's Brighta Type III solar LED lights were a perfect match for the park. They allowed commuters to go out on their boats early in the morning and return with ease.

Imagine trying to launch a boat in the darkness - not the easiest task! But with Greenshine's help, commuters can safely attend the park and fish if so desired.One of the largest benefits of using solar LED lights in a park setting is because of park beautification. When archaic, traditional lighting fails, solar is the best option.

The reason is that digging into park grounds can be an unsightly thing. But don't take our word for it - here's some proof!The photo above is of a project to install a stoplight - not exactly the same application, but the idea is the same. The light company had to dig into the sidewalk and re-pave over it, then place hazard cones in the area so people would avoid the dangerous spots.

Imagine that kind of look in a park! That's why the application of solar street lights is prime for parks (or really any environment) - it keeps the grounds looking fresh instead of paved over from recent installations!SecurityIt's a no-brainer that lights help with security. We're sure you want your cars parked in brightly-lit areas, and that's why we've developed lighting systems specifically meant for parking lots - another great application of solar street lights. These lights, highly tuned and specified to blip on at specifc times, boast an extremely high color rendering index (80) so that more natural light hits the illuminated subject.

What does this mean for security? Under an HPS lamp, a red car tends to look black! The high CRI for LED lights reveals more natural color, so in the event of an incident that compromises security, visiblity isn't lost.In addition to a high rendering index, solar street lights can be paired with motion sensors and cameras to add to high security in remote locations. In the event that motion is detected from a sensor, the solar lights can instantly turn to full brightness and capture the object in motion - whether it's a critter or criminal.

That's just another application of solar street lights that really "shines," pun intended. A recent project that Greenshine completed was a parking lot in a loading zone for Siemens. Vandals roamed the area and were stealing some equipment.

After we installed several Brighta light systems, the vandals relocated. The lighting system boosted security in the area saving the corporation several thousands of dollars from theft and property damage. Plus, the company saved even more - 65 thousand dollars to be more specific - since they didn't need to break into the concrete for light installation.

It's one of our most successful projects to date since it demonstrated how versatile these solar lights can be.AirportSeveral weeks ago, Los Angeles International Airport suffered a major power outage and the backup generators failed! Such an extreme power mishap like that doesn't happen often, but it's good to know that there's technology around that operates without reliance on a power grid if the grid were to fail (since it did). That's just another application of solar street lights that fits perfectly with airports - although there were many other problems that the terminals faced, having a set of solar LED lights would have been a strong idea for the area since it left commuters and traffic in the dark - literally! Unfortunately, there weren't such lights available for the airport at the time so crews had to work for several hours straight restoring power for guests and commuters.

What works great for airports are also mobile solar towers. These can be easily wheeled anywhere on terminal grounds to bring light where there typically isn't. When not in use, they can be wheeled back to their origin and then left in the sun to recharge - or left out for a semi-permanent lighting solution.

These behemoth towers take the energy from the sun and re-use it in the LED lamps on top of the tower. Built with the most technologically-advanced Cree XPG-2 LED bulbs on the market, mobile solar towers are built to illuminate and last.Another airport project in Santa Monica that Greenshine knocked out recently was the replacement of an archaic lighting system for Santa Monica Airport.

Their system of parking lot lights was failing and in horrible disrepair. The light pedestals were still in place, but the wiring system underground needed to be replaced. Not with solar! The installation job was incredibly quick since the poles worked well with the pedestals in the parking lot.

It saved the customer gobs of money and time. It's just another application of solar street lights that works perfectly.ConstructionWe couldn't be more excited to get a phone call or lead when it comes to a construction project.

Why? We've served plenty of customers over the years with solar LED lights. Lighting during construction can be quite costly, especially if you need a generator that burns fossil fuels, needs constant maintenance, requires refueling, and causes several cases of tinnitus for nearby workers. Construction sites don't need generators for lighting, especially when it comes to solar! Skip the loud noises and constant upkeep - set up a portable solar light and forget about maintenance for the next five years.

Move the light with a forklift wherever you might need it to work in bright, uninterrupted light. Another recent project, parking lot lighting for Lake Elsinore, needed temporary lighting for their construction projects. Not only did our lights provide a large illumination spread for working, but they also deterred the vandalism of their emergency response vehicles and other equipment - crime dropped to zero incidents.

This application of solar street lights was one of the most successful for Greenshine - it stands as an exemplary project for our lights since the city used them in multiple ways to illuminate grounds and keep equipment as safe as possible.ResidentialGreenshine recently had a project where residents of Gila River were against any kind of digging - the installation grounds ran into peoples' yards and having a crew dig into the dirt just wouldn't have worked. Plus, they wanted a lighting fixture that looked highly similar to the older lighting systems in the area.

Greenshine provided a Lumina system that met their needs, saved them money, and kept the grounds from ugly trenching. It's projects like this that really matter - meeting all needs and keeping areas safe for residents at all hours of the night.Mailbox and Canopy LightingSolar LED lights work anywhere for whatever reason needed! Another one of our recent lighting projects was solar lighting for mailboxes at Camp Pendleton.

Residents weren't able to see their mailboxes at night for their homes, and since the area was already built trenching to connect power for a lighting system would have restricted access to important email and would block people from parking in their own spaces. Plus, the bill would have been several thousands of dollars more! The most feasible solution for Camp Pendleton was to install solar mailbox lighting so residents could properly see their mail - and get to it too! The project managers and residents were heavily pleased with the result.Solar lights fit in those odd categories of lighting - we've even installed lights for busy bus stops in the past.

These projects, although not as common, represent the unique application of solar street lights and how they operate in virtually any environment. Plus, their aesthetic design blends in with residential environments, adding a touch of lovely decor. You won't get ugly technological contraptions installed to light up the area!MilitaryYes, Greenshine has even installed solar lighting on military bases! China Lake needed a new lighting system since their old wiring had failed, and the closest connection was too far to draw power from - the project costs would have been through the roof! The lights in question were meant to illuminate fighter jets for display - an awesome sight to behold at night! Greenshine was able to install 6 Supera lights in the area to illuminate the jets.

Not only that, the military base reduced its overall carbon footprint and saved several hundreds of dollars from energy usage - on top of the costs saved from trenching! Just another perfect application of solar street lights that gets the job done and makes all parties happy.Solar LED Lighting in a NutshellAs before, solar LED lights:Are incredibly versatileCan be installed nearly anywhereSave customers thousands of dollarsSave an exorbitant length of timeAre positive for the environmentLast longer than traditional lightingReduce pollution and toxic wasteMake your city, business, or residential area more attractiveIncrease safety, security, and fun for everyone!At Greenshine New Energy, we know the business inside and out.

Why don't hotel rooms have ceiling lights?

My hotel building is over 100 years old, so we have ceiling lights. We also need a ladder to change a bulb 11' from the floor. It can take 20 minutes for 1 bulb! This is one reason that we have changed to the longer lasting (and more economical) low-energy bulbs.

I would be delighted to have wall lights instead. Retro-fitting them would however be even less economically sound.

Higher than average ceilings mean ladders to change the bulbs in ceiling fittings, and this extends the maintenance time and convenience for staff enormously. Even normal height ceilings mean that a chair is needed to swap a bulb out. Wall fittings are so much more convenient for both staff and customers, reducing the time taken to get light again!

As Michael Forrest Jones says - anything other than a simple bulb swap requires the power to be cut to the whole circuit (which may be more than just a few rooms). This makes it very awkward to do emergency repairs after dark! -- Been there done that... Go with wall fittings that can be isolated in-room!

In short:

I have ceiling lights.

I don't like them, as they are awkward for maintenance.

Replacing them would be expensive and extremely difficult - basically a total rewire of the hotel lighting system.

Design engineers are not stupid. they note the first 2 points!

Development Direction of Solar Street Lamp Manufacturers
Development Direction of Solar Street Lamp Manufacturers
There are many solar street lamp manufacturers. In the face of fierce competition in the industry, solar street lamp manufacturers have to face some problems if they want to develop. If they want customers to find you or patronize you again, the premise is that you are a good manufacturer in all aspects, What kind of development direction should solar street lamp manufacturers have now?If the solar street lamp price has an impact on customers, it can only be that the solar street lamp manufacturer has not really succeeded. Because the price war is never an inevitable factor for the development of manufacturers. Today, you can give customers a very low price and reduce the street lamp price by reducing the Watts actually needed by customers. It may not be guaranteed that another manufacturer will use the same method to reduce the price and attract customers. You are lowering the price, and your opponent is also lowering the price. In this way, long-term development will only hurt both sides.Therefore, the price war is not the correct development direction of solar street lamp manufacturers. The correct direction should be to focus on product production, improve product quality and cost performance, and do a good job in after-sales service at the same time. It's like a 99 yuan smartphone and a Samsung phone with hundreds or even 3000 yuan. There is a big difference in price, but we still choose Samsung phone because of its high brand, good performance and cost performance in all aspects. Therefore, the development direction of solar street lamp manufacturers should not tangle in price, but do a good job in their products and improve their brand.
Industry: LED Industry Reshuffle Through Three Forces
Industry: LED Industry Reshuffle Through Three Forces
The collapse of small and micro led enterprises last year has opened the curtain of the reshuffle of China's LED industry. Since the beginning of this year, three major factors, such as the rising threshold of government procurement, the continuous tide of IPO listing and the introduction of industry standards, will accelerate the process of reshuffle in the LED industry.On March 20 this year, the "2012 financial subsidy promotion project for semiconductor lighting products" organized by the Ministry of finance, the national development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of science and technology held a domestic public bidding in Beijing, involving led downlights and reflective self ballasting LED lights for indoor lighting, LED street lights and led tunnel lights for outdoor lighting, Nearly 300 bidding representatives from 110 enterprises across the country participated in the bidding activities.The national development and Reform Commission made it clear that in 2012, the Chinese government will spend 40 billion yuan on the procurement of LED street lamps and provide 30% financial subsidies to LED street lamp users. Since March this year, all lighting projects and new planning areas invested by the provincial government have used LED electrodeless lamps in the field of public lighting, which is estimated to bring a market of hundreds of billions of yuan.Don't think that the government will "sprinkle pepper" again. An entrepreneur who participated in the bidding on March 20 revealed that the national bidding raised the threshold. For example, products should have energy-saving certification. The province also invited tenders for LED products entering the indoor lighting of public works this year. So far, downlights of 3 enterprises, spotlights of 3 enterprises, bulb lamps of 6 enterprises and fluorescent lamps of 22 enterprises have won the bid.Facing the industry pattern of "small and scattered", the government began to realize that it is necessary to support powerful enterprises to become bigger and stronger.More and more led enterprises are listed, which will become another important force for industry integration. After development in recent years, the total number of Listed Companies in the LED industry has been close to 40, and not a few are lining up for listing. It is expected to produce some industry leaders who can compete with international giants.According to the data of provincial Lighting Appliance Association, from 2010 to now, more than 100 LED projection lamp enterprises have completed the share reform, and the Pearl River delta accounts for 51.5%; The listed led enterprises account for about 61.5%, including Hongli optoelectronics, Zhouming technology, etc; There are also some ready to be listed, such as Shenzhen Jiawei Co., Ltd., which exports solar LED outdoor lights for 1 billion yuan a year, and will be listed soon.After the listing of led enterprises, it is not only conducive to establish their own good brand image in the chaotic market, but also can use capital means to acquire and merge, expand themselves and purify the market. Zhouming technology said that if it encounters a good project, it does not rule out the possibility of acquisition.The third force of integration comes from the continuous improvement of industry standards. The national standardization management committee recently held the first working meeting of the semiconductor lighting standard leading group, involving the national development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of science and technology, the Ministry of industry and information technology, the Ministry of housing and urban rural development, the Ministry of Finance and other departments. This is the first time that the industry has uniformly planned and deployed the semiconductor lighting standardization work at the national level Light source and lamps, lighting application and energy efficiency.The Provincial Department of science and technology will also announce the progress in the formulation of semiconductor lighting standards this week. At present, 130 standard items have been listed, and led enterprises can participate in the revision of industry standards through bidding.It can be predicted that with the gradual improvement of industry standards, the LED metal halide lamp industry will bid farewell to the mixed situation. In the upcoming 12th Five Year Plan for semiconductor lighting, the state pointed out that by 2015, the scale of semiconductor lighting industry will reach 500 billion yuan, and cultivate 20 30 leading enterprises with independent brands and independent intellectual property rights, and 40 50 innovative high-tech enterprises
I Would Like to Ask What Are the Ways to Improve the Brightness of Solar Street Lamps?
I Would Like to Ask What Are the Ways to Improve the Brightness of Solar Street Lamps?
I would like to ask what are the ways to improve the brightness of solar street lamps?1. Determine the brightness of LED solar street lamp before purchaseBefore purchasing solar street lamps, if it is a large number of recycling, the best thing is to choose manufacturers with industrial plants and drive to the processing plant to have a look. If you decide where to buy, you must talk to the other party about the regulations on chromaticity. If you don't have much definition of this chromaticity, you can let the other party make a sample to have a look.If the requirements for chromaticity are very high, the size of LED light source should be larger. Some manufacturers will choose the most suitable scheme for you out of your own consideration. If it is not particularly bright according to your specific situation, you can also listen to the manufacturer's suggestions.2. Lower the LED solar street lamp equipmentIf solar street lamps are to be installed on both sides of the road, we should fully consider whether there are green plants on both sides of the road. Because the solar street lamp is converted into electromagnetic energy by digesting and absorbing solar energy, if something blocks it, the actual effect is undoubtedly impossible to be very good. When such a situation does occur, why not reduce the height of the solar street lamp and not completely cover the solar panel.3. Query LED solar street lamps on timeMany solar street lamp projects are not easy to hold meetings after the equipment is good, which is naturally not very good. Although solar energy does not need maintenance or cleaning by full-time personnel, it must be queried on time. The damaged position should be repaired immediately. If the solar panel has not been removed for a long time, it also needs to be inadvertently scrubbed.

Technicians Tell You: What Is the Construction Scheme of Solar Street Lamps
Today, solar street lamps not only illuminate the road for people, but also save energy consumption for national energy consumption. They are not only environmental protection products, but also cost saving and contribute to the country.1. Selection of disassembly and assembly location: the disassembly and assembly location shall be near the installation location to facilitate transportation after assembly. In addition, the installation point shall be paved with rainproof cloth to place the wear, scratch and stain caused by the bulge or fine sand and stain on the ground.2. Installation personnel and tools: there are 3-6 professional installation personnel (personnel can be appropriately increased for heavy installation tasks), and each person is equipped with a set of installation tools, including a multimeter, a large movable port (installing anchor nuts) and a small movable port (installing other nuts), a flat screwdriver, a triangular lock tooling, a cross screwdriver and a pointed nose pliers, several rolls of insulating tape and waterproof tape, etc. In addition, there must be a crane and a lift truck.3. Count the lamps according to the delivery list: disassemble and check all parts one by one with reference to the packing list, and check whether there is any damage such as collision, wear, deformation and scratch. The installation of unqualified products is prohibited.4. The lamp pole components and easily worn accessories (components and lamp caps) must be padded with soft pads to avoid unnecessary damage such as scratches during installation.5. When the lower lamp pole assembly is placed, its upper end must be supported by an iron frame to facilitate the installation of the upper lamp pole assembly.1. Assembly of lamp pole assembly: upper lamp pole assembly, lower lamp pole assembly, lamp arm assembly and solar cell assembly fixing structure.A. Install the lamp arm: bind the exposed sheath wire end on the lower lamp pole with thin iron wire and wrap it with black tape: the other end of the thin iron wire passes through the lamp arm assembly; Slowly pull the thin iron wire at the top of the lamp arm assembly so that the thin iron wire with the movable sheath wire passes through the lamp arm assembly. At the same time, the lamp arm assembly gradually approaches the lower lamp pole until the panel on the lamp arm is aligned and close to the lamp arm boss on the lower lamp pole, and then fasten the lamp arm assembly on the lower lamp pole with appropriate bolts; When fixing the lamp arm assembly, avoid squeezing the sheath wire, resulting in damage or even cutting of the sheath wire skin; Disconnect the thin wire from the sheath.B. Installation of lamps (equipped with equal source): close the opened lamps to the upper end of the lamp arm, and the exposed sheath wire passes into the lamps from the tail of the lamps; Pull the sheath wire and insert the lamp into the lamp arm at the same time. The overlapping length of the two is 150mm; Connect the sheath wire to the wiring terminal inside the lamp, and pay attention to the correct positive and negative wiring during wiring. Rotate the lamp with the lamp arm as the neutral so that the lampshade is facing the ground, and then fix the lamp on the arm; Turn off the lights.C. Pole assembly on assembly:1) Fasten the bracket assembly and corner post on the upper lamp post assembly in turn, and the threaded connection parts shall be stressed evenly and fastened; While connecting the support and the angle steel frame, use fine iron wire to lead the sheath wire from the lamp pole to the angle steel frame through the support assembly;2) . place the component guard in the angle steel frame, and then place the component on the guard; When placing the components, the junction box shall be at a high place. When the components are placed horizontally, the junction box shall be close to the light pole assembly;3) . connect the components according to the system voltage and component voltage of the street lamp. If the system voltage of the street lamp is 24V and the component voltage is 17V or 18V, the components shall be connected in series. The series connection mode is that the positive pole (or negative pole) of the first component is connected with the negative pole (or positive pole) of the second component. If the component voltage is 34V, the components shall be connected in parallel, The parallel method is to connect the positive and negative poles of the first component and the positive and negative poles of the second component correspondingly. When connecting, press the small slotted screwdriver to the terminal of the junction box. The red wire is required to connect the positive pole and the blue wire to the negative pole. After wiring, fasten the anti nut at the outlet end of the junction box, and apply 7091 sealing silica gel at the terminal of the junction box, The amount of glue shall be subject to the complete sealing of the incoming line in the junction box, and then the junction box cover shall be fastened without reverse buckle.4) Use a multimeter to detect whether the component wiring (connected to the controller end) is short circuited, and also to detect whether the component output voltage meets the system requirements. In fine weather, the open circuit voltage shall be greater than 18V (system voltage is 12V) or 34V (system voltage is 24V). After installing and testing the components, the power line is connected to the positive pole of the controller end, and the exposed wire core shall be wrapped with insulating tape, which shall be wrapped in two layers;Note: the components shall be handled with care during installation to avoid damage to them by tools and other instruments.5) , components and component supports are fastened with M6 * 20 bolts, N6 nuts and washers 6.

During fastening, the bolt joints shall be firmly connected without looseness.
This Can Be Done When the Solar Street Lamp Cannot Work (I)
This Can Be Done When the Solar Street Lamp Cannot Work (I)
1 Power loss of solar street lamp: the power loss of solar battery is due to the quality problem of the battery itself. The cheapest one is 2-3 yuan 1Ah. Generally, this is not very reliable. Problems continue to occur after using it for about a year. Therefore, to solve this problem, replace the solar battery and replace it with a better manufacturer, If it is a northern city, it should also be noted that the battery must be buried below the frozen soil layer, especially in cold places. Thermal insulation cotton should be added to the battery, because the capacity of solar energy storage battery has a great relationship with the external ambient temperature.2 The LED light source of solar street lamp is not on: it may be the most direct way for the performance of solar street lamp. The solar street lamp system is abnormal, that is, it is not on. One of the reasons why the solar street lamp is not on may also be the problem of LED light source. As a general purchaser, it is difficult to distinguish high-power LED light source. If the solar street lamp is not on, You can simply check the light source by yourself. If the system is small and the system voltage of the light source is 12V or 24V, the conventional configuration is used. The best way to detect the light source is to connect the battery directly to the light source. If the light is on, it proves to be normal.For more questions, please click the right figure to consult online customer service.
