Solar night lighting
“How can we light up the night using solar power?”
Turning on lights at night is one of the key requirements for safety in a populated area. However, such lights can be very taxing on the electrical grid. Could there be a way to circumvent this issue? Well, let’s think about it. We know that solar panels can be used to generate energy independent of the grid. And we also know that all of the excess energy can be stored in the batteries at night. So what if we were to take solar panels, generate some energy during the day, and then store it in batteries, so when the night comes, our lights can have a power source independent of the grid? This most fascinating setup is known as solar lighting, and is very useful for the fact that not only does it beneficial for the environment but also beneficial for a user’s wallet through net metering!
