We always look for way to make our lights better and more efficient.
We use a calculator to optimise our solar street lights to match the location.
Our lithium batteries can last 20 years because we never run them flat.
Our 4G construction site solar cameras perform better with our solar street lights. More light allows for higher resolution video recording from our cameras.5
We engineer our solar street lights so they last 20 years.
We do this by allowing our lithium LifePO4 batteries have an average remaining charge of 80% at dawn.
Depending on the location this could mean a bigger solar panel tilted at the correct angle.
Some locations closer to the equator such as Brisbane and Cairns, have an plenty of sunshine.
Locations such as Melbourne and Hobart have much less sunshine during winter. These are further from the equator and need a bigger solar panel.
A high quality solar street light using lithium batteries will start from $1,500. Pole and installation is extra.
Our solar security cameras have been operating from November 2016 with no issues. On 25 Jan 2019, the temperature reached 44°, our cameras were still working.
At Solar Street Lights Australia, we have built our own Solar Light Calculator.
Our calculator gets solar data from the BOM.
We compare our results to the readings from our lights and we find that it is very accurate.
We enter the parameters of alternative suppliers into our calculator and we find their light configurations are not suitable for Melbourne conditions.
