Streetlights Solar System

The Greenshine company has developed a Solar System for streetlights. According to Streetlights-solar renewable energy is enjoying a rising support from private organisations and individuals due to the gradual decline in its production cost. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the price of building an offshore wind farm has fallen 22% in 2016, across Europe. From 2012 to 2016, the cost fell by almost 46%. At present, erecting turbines in the seabed costs an average $126 per megawatt-hour capacity compared to $155 per megawatt-hour price for new nuclear developments across Europe.

SWOT Analysis for
Streetlights Solar System
Helpful Harmful
Strengths• More than 30 years of experience in developing solar LED lighting systems.
• Provides high intensity of lighting at night while consuming no electricity.
• No energy consumption cost.
• Uses LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) as a lighting source which provide better brightness, higher quality and more reliable lighting.
• Provides a light system that meets the standard lighting requirements for public areas while avoiding the cost of installation of standard grid-powered lights
• Rechargeable battery up to 6 days of autonomy with the use of Greenshine smart power technology
• Solar panels are composed of mono-crystalline silicon, which provides more efficient performance and, as a result, our solar street lights battery last longer and deliver a better lighting result.
• Provides lighting photometric simulations, layouts specific to your application and appropriate system configurations for your local solar conditions
• Customization: Options for light output and pole height are available in order to provide sufficient light for numerous applications
Weaknesses• Due to the advanced technology required for solar lights, their average cost is about $3,000 per light.
• Require higher initial investment compared to conventional street lights
Opportunities• Help minimize safety risks when traveling at night or during low light conditions, promoting safer and more accessible community environments
• Reducing energy consumption
• Promoting safer and more accessible community environments
• The risk of accidents is minimized: Since solar wires do not have external wires, (accidents happen to the personnel who fixes the street light).
• Eliminating your carbon footprints contribution: Solar street lights are environment-friendly because its panels are solely dependent to the sun.
Threats• Extreme weather: Snow or dust, and moisture can accumulate on horizontal PV-panels. This leads to reduced or full stoppage of energy production
• Require higher initial investment compared to conventional street lights
