A solar lamp also known as solar light or solar lantern, is a light fixture composed of an LED lamp, solar panels, battery, charge controller and inverter. Depending on where and when the lamp is being used, it has various sizes of batteries. The lamp operates no electricity or batteries are required due to the use of solar through the use of photovoltaic panel.
Solar-powered household lighting can replace other light sources like candles or kerosene lamps. Solar lamps use renewable energy with infinity supply and it is cheaper than standard lamps. In addition, solar lamps reduce health risk as kerosene lamps has bad impact on human health. However, solar lamps have high initial cost, weather dependent and the panels can pollute the environment.
Advantages of solar lamp:
♦Low costs: There is no maintenance cost required and it is one-time investment as it usually runs itself. Also it can be used wherever and whenever if it is charged. In addition, there is no need to use electricity therefore decrease the charge on electricity bill. Hence, it can be used in areas where there are no electricities, for example remote areas or rural areas where they are under-developed.
♦More safety: A lower voltage product compare to the lamps that are run by main electricity.In addition, households using solar lamps rather than kerosene lamps are able to avoid the health risk that kerosene can cause. Kerosene often has a bad impact on the lungs.
♦Using renewable energy: No worries about running out of solar energy to charge the lamps unlike some of the other sources of energy such as electricity or fuel.
Use of solar lamp:
♦Rural: In rural India, solar lamps, commonly called solar lanterns, using either LEDs or CFLs, are being used to replace kerosene lamps. Especially in areas where electricity is scarily supplied, solar lamps are very useful and it will also improve life in rural areas.
