Photovoltaic led street lights, or commonly known as Solar led street light(classicledlight), are becoming more popular and are popping up all over the world. There are so many benefits to using these types of street lights, but improving sustainability is my personal favorite. Here's why:
Using solar led street light provides a reduced reliance on fossil fuels as the power is self-contained and provided daily by the sun. This impact initially lowers emissions into our atmosphere. Also, a much-forgotten aspect is the lower installation requirements. Since the poles are set with no underground trenching, less heavy equipment is required to complete even the largest installation.
With the increase in efficiency of a solar led street light, we are now able to lower wattages while not losing light. This is lowering the amount of solar power and battery backup required to keep the system going. It is also providing better visibility and can even be installed with wildlife-friendly or dark sky optics to ensure there is little to no impact on our environment.
