This system is designed for outdoor application especially in un-electrified remote rural areas.

This system is an ideal application for campus and village street lighting.

The system is provided with battery storage backup sufficient to operate the light for significant hours daily.

The system is provided with automatic ON/OFF times witch for dusk to down operation and overcharge /deep discharge prevention cut-off with LED indicators

RENEWABLE SOURCE OF ENERGY 

The 89 peta watts of sunlight reaching the Earth’s surface is plentiful – almost 6,000 times more than the 15 terawatts of average electrical power consumed by humans. Additionally,solar electric generation has the highest power density among renewable energies.

Solar power is pollution-free during use. Production end-wastes and emissions are manageable using existing pollution controls.End-of-use recycling technologies are under development.

PV installations can operate for many years with little maintenance or intervention after their initial set-up, so after the initial capital cost of building any solar power plant,operating costs are extremely low compared to existing power technologies.

Solar electric generation is economically superior where grid connection or fuel transport is difficult, costly or impossible.Long-standing examples include satellites, island communities,remote locations and ocean vessels.

SOLAR POWER 

       Solar Power is the generation of electricity from sunlight. This can be direct as with photo voltaics (PV), or indirect as with concentrating solar power (CSP), where the sun’s energy is focused to boil water which is then used to provide power. Solar power has the potential to provide over 1,000 times total world energy consumption in 2008, though it provided only 0.02% of the total that year. If it continues to double in use every two to three years, or less, it would become the dominant energy source this century. The largest solar power plants, like the 354 MW SEGS, are concentrating solar thermal plants, but recently multi-mega watt photo voltaic plants have been built. Completed in 2008, the 46 MW Moura photo voltaic power station in Portugal and the 40 MWWaldpolenz Solar Park in Germany are characteristic of the trend toward larger photo voltaic power stations. Much larger ones are proposed, such as the 100 MW Fort Peck Solar Farm, the 550 MW Topaz Solar Farm, and the 600 MW Rancho Cielo Solar Farm.Terrestrial solar power is a predictably intermittent energy source,meaning that whilst solar power is not available at all times, we can predict with a very good degree of accuracy when it will and will not be available. Some technologies, such as solar thermal concentrat or shave an element of thermal storage, such as molten salts. The sestore spare solar energy in the form of heat which can be made available overnight or during periods that solar power is not available to produce electricity. Orbital solar power collection (as in solar power satellites) avoids this intermittent issue, but requires satellite launching and beaming of the collected power to receiving antennas on Earth. The increased intensity of sunlight above the atmosphere also increases generation efficiency

  APPLICATIONS

                Solar power is the conversion of sunlight to electricity. Sunlight can be converted directly into electricity using photo voltaics (PV), or indirectly with concentrating solar power (CSP), which normally focuses the sun’s energy to boil water which is then used to provide power, and technologies such as the Stirling engine dishes which use a Stirling cycle engine to power a generator. Photo voltaics were initially used to power small and medium-sized applications, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to off-grid homes powered by a photo voltaic array.Solar power plants can face high installation costs, although this has been decreasing due to the learning curve. Developing countries have started to build solar power plants, replacing other sources of energy generation.Solar power has great potential, but in 2008 supplied only 0.02% of the world’s total energy supply. However, use has been doubling every two, or less, years, and at that rate solar power, which has the potential to supply over 1,000 times the total consumption of energy,would become the dominant energy source within a few decades.Since solar radiation is intermittent, solar power generation is combined either with storage or other energy sources to provide continuous power, although for small distributed  producer/consumers, net metering makes this transparent to the consumer. On a larger scale, in Germany, a combined power plant has been demonstrated, using a mix of wind, biomass, hydro-, and solar power generation, resulting in 100% renewable energy.
