3 Common Problems Solar Adopters Have with Solar--and How to Resolve Them with a Solar Power Generator
Posted by Stephen Shickadance in Solar FAQs.
We’ll show our hand of cards today and admit that solar isn’t perfect, it’s just better than fossil fuels. But when constructing a solar lighting project for wherever light must be, there are some small difficulties planners and project managers might run into in regards to solar panel placement and other snags. We’re here to help! Greenshine has been into solar for a combined 3 decades and knows what’s around the corner for a lot of projects. Let us be your eyes for this journey since we know the pitfalls.
Details on a Solar Power Generator
Power Your Outdoor Solar Lights with a Remote Panel
Probably the most apparent “problem” of solar is that it’s unsightly. Even with our decorative lights, a solar panel perched somewhere on the light pole isn’t very attractive. Whatever decorative fixture might be on the top of the pole certainly looks lovely, but the panel itself just sticks out--a dark, flat panel with a generic, unappealing look. Nobody ever said solar power was attractive. But there’s a way you can preserve your light aesthetic, stay green, and save some green all at the same time.
If you power your outdoor solar lights with a remote panel, there’s no need to have the solar panel up on the pole. Using a solar powered generator located in an inconspicuous location can beautify your light pole while harnessing the power of the sun. You get the best of all worlds--cheap, renewable energy (provided every sunny morning), a low-cost technology to power a light, connected to a remote panel generator that hides the ugly part of solar tech. Congratulations, you’ve won.
Relocate Your LED Lights Where Needed with a Separate Solar Panel
We love trees; we’re Greenshine after all, so anything that speaks green to us is a positive aspect of our corporation. However, trees can often be culprits for solar power since they tend to block what solar panels thrive on: the sun. If you have a mini-forest in the area, that can definitely spell doom for the maximum potential of your solar panel power. If your panels are sitting in too much shade, it’s time to think about powering your LED lights with a separate solar panel.
An SPG (solar-powered generator) off-site is perfect for those pesky areas that have very little sunlight because of trees. Find a spot that is secluded but open enough to maximize your solar time, and you can be certain that your solar lights will still be running for days even when the sun ducks behind an overcast sky. Keep your park or public areas populated with trees and well-lit at night with a separate solar panel.
Not Just Lights…But a Wealth of Other Applications
If you’re enjoying your solar spot light with separate solar panel lighting up the night with virtually endless power, don’t forget that your solar generator is portable and can be used almost anywhere. So if your lights are portable as well, remember you can have flexibility with your installations and how they’re powered. In short, an SPG moves with you.
We hope we’ve shed some light (pun intended) on finding workarounds with powering your outdoor solar lights with a remote panel. You can hide them around inconspicuous corners if needed, use them to help solar panels gain charge in the midst of problematic sun-blockers, and you can take them anywhere with you!
