There have been great strides in the development of the LED technology over the years. They have become more durable, cheaper to produce and much more versatile. Conversely, the older types of lighting, namely the incandescent lights have pretty much reached their zenith years ago and could not be perfected any further.
So, what happens when you combine the fledgling technology of solar lighting with the efficiency of the LED type of lighting? You get amazing results and revolutionary results in both conservation of energy and cutting the costs of maintenance. Take the example of solar LED parking lot lights that are cropping up all through the USA. The solar collectors store energy in the batteries which is then used to power the LEDs during the night. All without being attached to the central electricity grid. This is possible due to the clear advantages of the LEDs over the other types of lighting.

Installing solar parking lights is much easier than you think. Here you’ll find an outline of the whole process of preparation for it.
How big is the area that needs lighting?
Parking lots come in many sizes – from small residential ones to huge lots serving supermarkets, malls and office complexes. The size of the area and the present obstacles affect the number and position of solar lights. It’s best to have blueprints of the area or ground and aerial shots to be able to make the most informed decision on how many lights would the parking lot benefit from and what the best places for positioning are. Continue reading “Installing Solar Parking Lights – Making Preparations”
A number of building owners and property managers are still unsure about lighting their property through solar energy. Even though outdoor solar lighting is much more economical in the long run, the upfront costs of installation are what makes the owners hesitant about making the investment and waiting for the return.

Defining Solar Street Light
Solar street lights are gradually replacing widely used traditional public street lights. They have a crystalline silicon solar battery to supply power, a maintenance-free controlled battery to store electricity, a ultra-bright LED lamps as light source. And they are controlled by a smart charging and discharging controller. Continue reading “All about Solar Street Light”
Morocco has no gas or oil gas resources on its territory. Therefore, the realm has to import about 90% of its electricity, totaling about one quarter of its overall importation. Buying energy from oversea is a huge investment for the country and Morocco is now turning to renewable energy to become self-sufficient in terms of energy. The country will soon produce its own energy, mainly through wind and solar facilities. Morocco’s goal is to produce about 20% of the country energy by 2020.
