Common Problems and Solutions of Integrated Solar Light
The popularity of integrated solar street lights has brought a lot of convenience to people’s lives. Nowadays, integrated solar street lights can be seen everywhere in many rural roads, scenic spots, mountains, parks, and other places. They store energy from sunlight, which is widely used in squares, public areas, roads, streets, etc. It’s made of lithium rechargeable battery, controller, solar panel, lighting pole, light source, etc. Integrated solar street lights are designed to work throughout the night. It will automatically turn on by sensing the light condition.
But do you really understand integrated solar street lights? If you don¡¯t know it enough, then during the installation and use process, integrated solar street lights may have some problems, so what are the common problems of integrated solar street lights? How to solve the problems? Below we list some common problems and solutions in the use of integrated solar street lights.

1. What to do if integrated solar street lights don’t work?
If the integrated solar street light is not on, it is likely that the battery is damaged. Remove the battery and replace it with a new battery for inspection. If it¡¯s on, it means the battery is faulty. Put the new battery cable through and connect it according to the original wiring method; If it still doesn’t light up, you need to check the controller. Secondly, check whether the load indicator light on the controller is on, and a voltage output indicates normal. If there is no voltage output, the controller needs to be replaced. Check the solar panel to see if it can be charged normally, mainly by looking at whether there is current on the voltage panel. If the battery board connector is not welded well or the aluminum foil has no current, it needs to be replaced; if it is caused by dust accumulation, it can be cleaned and maintained.
2. Which direction should the solar panel faced to?
China is in the northern hemisphere, and the sun shines directly from the south, so only the solar panels facing south can fully absorb the solar light. If the photovoltaic module faces north, it will not absorb sunlight. The ideal angle of inclination is to make the solar panel’s annual power generation as large as possible, so that the difference in power generation between winter and summer is as small as possible.
3. Where should solar panels be installed best?
Solar panels should be installed where they can receive sunlight all day long, and tall trees and buildings should not be able to block the sunlight. Even if there is a small amount of shading, it will greatly reduce the output of the system’s power.
4. Is the solar panel fragile?
Solar panels are not as fragile and brittle as we think. They are made of polycrystalline or monocrystalline cells. The surface layer is laminated with strong tempered glass. The frame is firmly fixed and can withstand the hail test.
5. How long is the lighting hours?
The configuration of integrated solar street lights is different, the electricity generated and the lighting hours are naturally different. The configuration of integrated solar street lights is generally determined according to the local environment. The parameters that need to be provided are the number of consecutive cloudy and rainy days, the duration of sunshine, and so on. When configuring integrated solar street lights, you need to choose a suitable battery. If the capacity of the solar street lamp rechargeable battery is too large or too small, it will affect the lighting efficiency of the street lamp.
6. Do solar panels need to be cleaned frequently?
Under normal circumstances, there is no need to clean solar panels frequently. But it can also be determined according to local conditions. If snow or windy sand accumulates on the solar panels, it needs to be cleaned regularly. During the cleaning process, do not step on or stand on the solar panel, and do not use metal or hard objects for wiping and cleaning.
In summary, you will encounter some problems during construction and use of integrated solar street lights. If there are any problems that can’t be solved, you can find a trustable street light manufacturer.
