How Does Solar LIghting Work?

1 Dawn: 

The voltage from the solar panel raises and gets higher than it was during the night. When a certain voltage threshold is reached the controller will detect this and turn off the light. The battery will then being to charge itself from the discharge that occurred when it was powering the light.

4 Night time: 

The voltage from the solar panel is lower than the pre-set value. After the controller recognizes this situation, the electricity is drawn from the charged battery and continuously powers the lamp fixture. The light will stay on all night until the sun rises and the cycle is completed.

2 Day time: 

Throughout the day the solar panels will convert the solar energy from the sun into electricity which will charge the battery. The intelligent solar controller charges the battery throughout the day and controls the current to ensure that the battery is not overcharged.

3 Dusk: 

As the sun sets the photocell that is built into the panel will sense the voltage drop as the panels are no longer taking a charge. The battery has been charged throughout the day and is now ready to discharge and provide electricity for the lamp and turn it on. If there is inclement weather, there are at least three days backup for Greenshine’s system.
