How to Maintain All In One Solar Street Lights

Generally speaking, all in one solar street lights do not need much maintenance after being installed, because all in one solar street lights is a very mature technology. But the operation/working environment has a great impact on outdoor solar lighting, Different installation site needs different maintenance accordingly. For example, in Africa, we should consider not only high temperature but also dust. Then we analyze some common maintenance problems from the following aspects:

  • The influence of dust

The influence of dust is mainly directly can be seen on the solar panels, because the dust will mainly affect the solar panels’ absorption of sunlight radiation, thus affecting the solar panels’ power generation efficiency. Normally, daily regular cleaning is no need because rainwater washes away the dust attached to solar panels on rainy days, but in some particularly arid environments or regions, rainwater is very few. Users can clean the solar panels regularly according to the actual situation, such as once a quarter, or once a year, depending on the rain and dust conditions of the installation site.

  • Snow and its shelters

In some countries, winter snowfalls very long and heavy, or some lamps are installed near tall trees. Snow, leaves and bird droppings may be attached to solar panels. When there is a decrease in power generation efficiency, such as a decrease in the number of continuous rainy days or a shorter light-on time, which reminders they need to be cleaned up. Look at these shields.


  • Battery Maintenance

Usually, do not need to do special maintenance or replace batteries during the service life if they use high-quality & reliable batteries. According to our previous experience, LED light source and solar panel generally do not need to be maintained after the service lifetime, but the performance of the battery may decline after five years, so if the service lifetime exceeds, the lamp is still working, but the number of continuous rainy days has decreased significantly, we can consider replacing the battery for adding another life cycle.


  • Salt Corrosion

If the lamp is installed near the seashore or in places of heavy corrosion with high salt fog, the installation bracket should be inspected regularly. We suggest that the installation bracket be inspected once a year, depending on the actual situation of the installation site. Normally, no additional maintenance is required.


Generally speaking, integrated solar street lamps require little maintenance unless they are installed in harsh environments.

Solar Street Lights 5 Kinds Applications -LUXMAN LIGHT

As we know Solar Street light has the following benefits:

* Installation anywhere

* Maintenance-free

* No underground or overhead service

* No electricity bill

* Different styles available

* Mobile phone remote control

* Real-time 24 hours of surveillance and security function optional


From the above advantages of solar-powered street lights, it can have a wide application, so in what areas can all in one solar light be applied?


1st– Remote Areas

Such as rural roads, islands, military barracks, farms and so on, because these places are remote or inhabitants do not live centrally, so the laying of electric wiring is very difficult, the cost of laying wiring is not proportional to the utilization rate, so solar pole lights can be used in remote areas.

2nd – Construction Site

Because these are temporary places, so access to power or installation of lighting is inconvenient, LUXMAN once had a customer who bought LUXMAN all in one solar street lights is leased to large local builders.

3rd – Campus, Square

Generally, these places are very empty, have a better sunshine foundation, on the other hand, the flow of people in these areas will be more during 6pm-10pm, and later will be reduced a lot, solar streetlight sensing and timing control functions well meet this demand characteristics.

4th – Road and Street

This application is also the most important application, street light power consumption is usually relatively large, in some countries and regions, electricity is very expensive, if the solar street lamp can be used to replace ordinary street light or LED street light, then a huge cost will be saved.

5th Residential Areas

Solar street lamps have good mobility. Residents can install different places according to their needs, such as swimming pool, Party table, courtyard entrance, Parking lot, etc. In addition, the extension function of solar street lamps can also meet the needs of residents, such as camera monitoring function, USB charging, mobile phone APP operation function and so on, bring users a more convenient user experience.

The Influence of Average Annual Sunshine And Total Solar Radiation Intensity In Africa For Solar Street Light

LUXMAN specializes in the production of solar LED street lights. Before each project is carried out, the customer’s environment and application will be investigated. Factors such as longitude and latitude, sunshine intensity, installation height of solar street light, installation location, estimated human flow, working hours per night, whether to accept intelligent dimming, etc. Will be considered and recommended. In this way, we can offer the best solutions, provide suitable products and fantastic services to our customers.

  1. Average Annual Sunshine in Africa

From a longitude and latitude point of view, Africa spans 30°N〜30°S. In average annual sunshine, the general trend is more in the north and south of Africa, and less in the middle. North of Sahara Desert, the annual sunshine is 3 000 ~ 3 500 hours. It’s lower in the central Africa, Gulf of Guinea and Congo Basin, at only 2 000 ~ 2 500 hours per year. It’s higher in the south of Africa, about 2 500 ~ 3 500 hours per year. Between 10° N ~ 10° S, the annual sunshine hours in the East are higher than in the West. For example, Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya average 2 500 ~ 3 500 hours per year, while Liberia, southern Nigeria, Congo and Democratic Congo in the West average 2 000 ~ 2 500 hours per year.

Due to the control of the tropical continental Saharan air mass in northern Africa, the climate is dry and sunshine is abundant. The annual sunshine in Egypt, Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Niger, northern Chad and Northern Sudan at 10°〜30°N is more than 3,000 hours. Western Africa is affected by the Equatorial Ocean Air Mass and it has less sunshine. From Sierra Leone to Central Africa and Democratic Congo, the annual sunshine is 2,000 to 2,500 hours. Affected by the dry northeast monsoon and the changeable southeast monsoon in East Africa, the climate is dry and sunshine is abundant throughout the year. From southern Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia to northern Mozambique, the annual sunshine increases to 2 500 ~ 3 000 hours.

Southern Africa is controlled by the subtropical highs in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. It has  stable air, less rain and more hours of sunshine, especially on the West coast. It’s particularly obvious. Southern Zambia, Angola and Mozambique have relatively less sunshine than in the south, ranging from 2500 ~ 3 000 hours per year. In an area centered in Botswana, the annual sunshine is more than 3000 hours. At the east coast of South Africa, it’s about 2 500 hours per year.

  1. Annual Total Solar Radiation Intensity

The annual total solar radiation intensity is 6 300 ~ 6 700 MJ/m2 in the Mediterranean coast of Africa. With Sahara as the center extending eastward to Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and Eastern Kenya, and Northern Tanzania, it’s about 7 500 ~ 8 400 MJ/m2. From the Gulf of Guinea in West Africa to Congo and Zaire, it’s about 5 800 ~ 6 700 MJ/m2. The rest of Africa is mostly at 6 700 ~ 7 500 MJ/m2.
