Generally speaking, all in one solar street lights do not require much maintenance after installation, as all in one solar street lights are very mature technology. But the operating/working environment has a big impact on outdoor solar lighting, and different installation locations require appropriate maintenance. For example, in Africa, we have to consider not only high temperature but also dust. Therefore, this article will analyze some common all in one solar street light maintenance problems, and hope it will be helpful to you.

This passage is going to talk about the followings of maintaining outdoor street light:

1) The impact of dust on all-in-one solar street lights

2) Snow and its shelters

3) Battery Maintenance

4) Salt corrosion


1) The impact of dust on all-in-one solar street lights

The effect of dust is mainly seen directly on the solar panels, as dust will mainly affect the solar panels' absorption of sunlight and thus the solar panels' power generation efficiency. Usually, regular daily cleaning is not required as rain will wash away the dust that adheres to the solar panels during rainy days, but in some particularly arid environments or regions, rain is rare. Users can clean their solar panels regularly, for example, quarterly or annually, depending on the rain and dust conditions at the installation site.


2) Snow and its shelters

In some countries/regions, the snowfall in winter is long and heavy or there are lights installed near tall trees. Snow, leaves and bird droppings may adhere to the solar panels. This alerts them to the need for cleanup when power generation efficiency decreases, such as when the number of consecutive rainy days decreases or when the power-up time is shortened. Look for these shields.


3) Battery Maintenance

Typically, if all in one solar street light uses high quality and reliable batteries, there is no need for special maintenance or battery replacement during the service life. Based on our previous experience, maintenance of the LED light source and solar panel is generally not required after the service life, but the performance of the batteries may deteriorate after five years, so if the all-in-one solar street light exceeds the service life and the bulbs still work, but the number of consecutive cloudy days has been greatly reduced, we may consider replacing the batteries to add another service life.


4) Salt corrosion

If the all-in-one solar street light bulb is installed near the sea or in a place where high salt spray is strongly corrosive, the mounting bracket should be checked regularly. We recommend that the mounting bracket be inspected once a year, depending on the actual conditions of the installation site. Usually, no additional maintenance is required.




Compared to traditional street lights, solar all-in-one lights are easier to take care of. The reason behind this convenience is that solar street lights do not require the use of a large number of wires and connections for their operation. The structure is simple and easy to maintain.

In general, all in one solar street light requires little maintenance unless it is installed in a harsh environment. The all-in-one solar street light is the ideal lighting solution for covered walkways, bus stop shelters and another outdoor covered canopy area. Solar canopy lights powered by the sun do not need to be connected to the grid and are easy to install and maintain. all-in-one solar street light automatically lights up in the dark and turns on and off after midnight with a photocell and time-controlled smart controller.
