How is solar street light manufactured? The 3 Step Process

The effect of solar street light is clear and has been recognized by people from all walks of life. Therefore, there are more and more solar street lighting manufactures. The key of producing solar street lamp is whether the manufacturers have mastered the main technical issues. For manufacturers mastered in production technology, it produces have good quality in general.

1. The installation of the controller

Controller controls the entire life of the solar street lights, so the batteries must be installed properly in the production process of lamps. Controller of the batteries controls the entire electric power during the production process.

Whether it is discharging or electric energy recovery, it is controlled by the battery controllers. Therefore, battery should be carefully installed or install and it is therefore installation or else it will affect the operation of the lamp.


2. Installation of LED lights

LED lights is the main component for solar street lights to illuminate. If it does not illuminate when the other parts of the lamps are at normal state, there must be the problem in the installation of LED lights. When producing the solar lights, all LED lights should be inspected to ensure it is ready to install and use.

In addition, installation process should follow the standard operation and it must be installed in place so as not to influence the operation of solar light.


3. Solar street light: Selection of the battery

Battery determines the service of solar street lights. If battery with better quality is chosen, the service life of the outdoor solar lights will be longer under the normal usage. On contrary, effect of solar LED lights will be greatly reduced.

Components of a solar street light

Solar street lights are becoming increasingly popular due to their energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and environmental benefits. These lights are made up of several components, each of which plays a crucial role in their operation. Here are the main components of solar street lights:

Solar Panels

The solar panel is the most important component of a solar street light. It is responsible for converting sunlight into electricity, which is then used to power the street light. Solar panels consist of photovoltaic (PV) cells that absorb sunlight and convert it into direct current (DC) electricity. The size and wattage of the solar panel determine the amount of electricity generated, which in turn determines the brightness and runtime of the LED lights.


The battery is another critical component of a solar street light. It stores the electricity generated by the solar panel during the day and powers the LED lights at night. The battery is typically made of lithium-ion, lead-acid, or nickel-cadmium (NiCd) and must have sufficient capacity to provide power throughout the night. The battery’s capacity is measured in ampere-hours (Ah), and the higher the Ah rating, the longer the runtime of the street light.

LED Lights

LED lights are used in solar street lights because of their high energy efficiency, long lifespan, and low maintenance requirements. They provide bright illumination for the street light while consuming very little energy. The LED lights are connected to the battery and controller and turn on automatically at dusk and turn off at dawn.


The controller is the brain of the solar street light system. It manages the flow of energy between the solar panel, battery, and LED lights to ensure optimal performance and efficiency. The controller has several functions, including regulating the battery’s charge and discharge cycle, controlling the LED light’s brightness, and protecting the battery from overcharging and deep discharge.

Pole and Mounting Structure

The pole and mounting structure provide support for the solar panel, battery, LED lights, and controller, and also secure the street light to the ground. The pole is typically made of steel or aluminum and must be strong enough to withstand harsh weather conditions. The mounting structure is designed to keep the solar panel at the optimal angle for sunlight absorption and prevent theft and vandalism.


Sensors are an optional component of solar street lights that detect movement and trigger the light to turn on or increase its brightness. Motion sensors, which detect heat or movement within their range, are the most common type of sensor used in solar street lights.

When movement is detected, the motion sensor sends a signal to the controller to turn on the LED lights or increase their brightness. Light sensors are also used in some solar street lights to detect ambient light levels and adjust the brightness of the LED lights accordingly.

There are not many technical matters producing a solar street light, the most important is to properly install the controllers, LED lights and select battery with good quality in order to ensure solar lamp operate normally. Moreover, extending the service life of solar post lights and with the standard maintenance in the later stage, it will not affect the operation of solar lighting.
