Rising Need for Cost-effective and Clean Energy to Propel Global Solar Street Lighting Market

Blog Description

Solar street lights are powered by photovoltaic panels that are integrated on the light poles. The solar street lights work independently and are not connected to the general grid. These lights are gaining traction across the globe, owing to the low maintenance they require in comparison with the conventional street lights. In addition, the solar street lighting is considered as a non-polluting source of electricity. Thus, solar street lighting is considered as one of the top renewable energy-based technologies to power the street lights in off-grid as well as grid-based systems.
