How to Choose a Solar Street Light Manufacturer?
In this article, we want to list you several fundamental points to consider in order to choose which is the ideal solar street light manufacturer for your business.
However, given the countless solar street light manufacturers on the market, it is not always easy to choose the best company to which to entrust your solar proje
Don¡¯t just focus on price and cost
Every day, more and more companies are operating in this field especially after the increase of the demand for solar street light, economical and renewable systems that allow a reduction of the costs in terms of energy used. Many times we are often deceived by very low prices and fast solutions.
A quick and fast response may lack detail and accuracy. If your project starts on the road and you don¡¯t know what type of Solar Street Light you need to install, and you need to carry out an in-depth study of what type of lighting system you need.
Always make sure that your contact person is available and attentive to your needs and that all the data provided has been clearly and accurately perceived. Promptness is not synonymous with accuracy and often overstated or underestimated offers are made because the company of your choice only wants to give you a price.
Many Chinese suppliers and manufacturers (not all of them) are trying to dump their prices by using poor quality components. In order to get a better understanding about the solar powered street light, we will list all components that are part of it, from the bottom up: solar panels, batteries, MPPT controller, metal parts, pole, wires,fuses etc. Each of these components are an important part of the solar street light. That is why it is so critical to evaluate each component when choosing what solar street light supplier you will hire to produce solar street lights for your project. After all these solar street lights are intended to stay installed more than 20 years, therefore it is very important not to focus only on the price and cost when choosing solar street light option.
Warranty coverage and customer service
The warranties on solar street light systems are very important. A one year warranty on the system does not guarantee the system will even make it to a year. The system could only cost a couple thousand, but if you have to pay that every year or two for replacement, it could end up costing you much more after only a few years of operation. Instead, ensuring you are purchasing a system that lasts for 25 years or more will reduce the overall project costs greatly, not only in the first year, but for many years to come.
How does the customer service department respond when there is a problem? Do they stand behind their product and answer your questions? Or do they leave you in the dark and stop responding once the purchase is complete? Speak to the manufacturers and get references.
Anybody can provide service but there is a difference of service and confidence in the product that it is offered. Check the facts always and remember, Tachyonlight will help you in your solar needs from the quotation, to the installation, and service calls for years to come. We will always look for exceeding customer service and provide help when you need it the most.
Corrosion is a natural wear-and-tear process that affects all metals. While corrosion is a natural occurrence, there are ways to mitigate corrosion and extend the life of solar street lights. Corrosion is the deterioration of metals due to chemical reaction with the environment. Corrosion occurs due to the oxidation of metals because of exposure to catalysts such as air and water. A preferred manufacturer is one who use materials which is treated for corrosion. Among the most common forms of corrosion protection methods are: Cathodic protection, Corrosion inhibitors, Coatings, Abrasive blasting.
Quality and project cases
Unfortunately, it is not possible to know in advance whether a product is of quality or not and the only way is through testimonials and/or project cases.
Be warned of companies that don¡¯t have project cases to show you. You should always ask for a test sample before making a bulk order.
Moreover, we don¡¯t have an MOQ because we want to give our customers the opportunity to test and verify our products with their own eyes before proceeding with bulk orders.
We all know that insects is the most attracted to bright light. A properly sealed light is always the best way to prevent insects from penetrating the solar street light and blocking the light emitted by the light which will result in a lower maintenance on the solar street light. Insects is the leading cause for any light for failing to work. A good manufacturer will recommend sealing the solar street light if it is your design, else their own product will be properly sealed to insects and the elements.
