An Easy Guide to Buying Solar Street Lights in Australia
You may be looking for a novel lighting solution for an upcoming project. Perhaps you just want to light up your garden like a football pitch. Whatever the reason, Vizonasolar street lights and light poles are a sustainable, innovative reality for any person or business in Australia.
Here is why you should use them and how to choose the right one for you.
Benefits Of a Solar Street Lamp
Solar light posts are better than regular ones for three reasons.
No mains cable installation or associated electricity costs. In addition to avoiding these costs, you also avoid the danger, time, and environmental impact associated with them. This solution is especially useful when you need a lighting solution in an environment where a mains cable or other infrastructure would be difficult to install or maintain.
Energy independence. The light provided by these often critical utilities will not be dependent on your regular electrical connection, ensuring they are always operational. This can be of crucial importance if they are used as street lighting or as part of some other safety function.
Easier maintenance and management. Solar street poles typically use 12V batteries, which are much easier to maintain and work with than the power source of your typical streetlight and don’t have to be installed by a qualified Electrician.
Solar panels that convert sunlight into electricity power these lights. By charging the battery throughout the day and using this power to illuminate LEDs automatically at night, solar lights make use of abundant natural energy to deliver reliable and sustainable lighting solutions.
Solar is an incredibly appealing lighting solution in a sun-rich country like Australia. It is essential, however, that buyers make sure they have all the information they need to make the right decisions and that they have the support and expertise to make a success of their solar lights.
What to Look For When Buying an Outdoor Lamp Post
Solar lights have a couple of critical components with which all buyers need to familiarise themselves. Here are three that all buyers need to think about, research and discuss with their potential suppliers.
Battery and solar panels. What is your light’s life cycle? What voltages will you require? Are your solar panels durable and high-quality? You may not be an expert on batteries or solar panels, but they have an essential impact on the performance and reliability of your lighting solution. Compare the battery and the specific solar panels of each system you are considering and reach out to us to get a better understanding of what you need.
LEDs. The efficiency, colour, and brightness of your lighting come down to your LEDs and choosing the right one will dramatically affect what your lighting solution achieves. Do you want bright, cool white light that shows off every detail in an environment perfectly? Or do you want soft and warm light that bathes an area in a fire-like glow? Spend some time thinking about what you want to achieve.
Finishes and maintenance. What is the point of spending your money on a great battery, exceptional solar panels, and high-performance LEDs if your lights aren’t weather-resistant and need constant maintenance? Tempered glass covers and powder-coated finishes are two great examples of things to look out for when choosing your lighting solution. Ask suppliers what they think your project would require.
Another important thing to look out for is a respected and long-time supplier.
Solar lighting is a technically demanding industry that requires specific expertise. Many lighting specialists have entered the solar lighting space recently without investing in the skills and knowledge required to deliver the best service to the Australian market.
