Solar street lights are independent of the utility grid reducing operation costs. The lights are wireless and are not connected to your electricity provider. Dependent on the heat energy given off by the sun, the solar street lights store as much of it throughout the day. Solar street lights require minimal maintenance compared to conventional street lights. Solar street lights have lower chances of overheating. Since solar wires do not have external wires, the risk of accidents and injury to utility and pedestrians are minimized. Go solar!
