If you have the need to install traffic warning lights in your area, there are several options to consider. For example, you could go with standard lights and signs but you also have the option of installing solar power warning lights. But is this the best option? Let’s explore this issue a little more closely to see.
Free Power When Needed
Some people believe that sun powered systems only function when the sun is shining and this is not the case. The truth is, most systems operate on DC power supplied by rechargeable batteries. The solar cells are used for replacing the charge in the batteries used by the warning system. There is no need to tap into an AC power source and use energy from the power company.
Because the power source is free, you will never receive an electric bill for your solar power warning lights. If you have several units installed in your community, the savings can add up during the course of a year. However, free electricity is not the only reason to use these systems.
Because there are no wires to run, installation is quite simple and uncomplicated. You will not have to be concerned with wires suspended over roadways or pay for installing buried cables in the ground.
When you choose self powered warning systems, you are not limited where you place them. There is no need to be near a power source, so you can install your units exactly where they need to be.
Today, most towns and cities are sincerely interested in doing their part for the local environment. Solar power warning lights utilize a source of renewable energy. No fossil fuels or nuclear power is required. Plus, when you add in the power savings, these warning systems are a cost effective solution to many traffic related problems.
