Global Solar Street Lighting Market: Snapshot

Solar street lighting systems can be an ideal lighting solution for lighting up roadways, streets, yards, boulevards, car parking spaces, airports, parks, civilian and military security installations, and almost any outdoor space. The solar panel receives sunlight and converts it into electricity, storing thus obtained energy in rechargeable batteries. The light automatically turns on with nightfall and can be customized to the desired brightness and wattage. However, the installation of these systems in an appropriate manner is crucial to ensure maximum efficiency. They need to be installed in a shadow-free, sunlit area to ensure maximum output.
