Solar-powered household lighting can replace other light sources like candles or kerosene lamps. Solar lamps use renewable energy with infinity supply which is cheaper than standard lamps. In addition, solar lamps reduce health risk as kerosene lamps have a bad impact on human health.
Grid Connected - These systems have no storage other than the grid itself. Any excess electricity generated from solar system is fed back into the grid. At night or during times of intense cloud cover, the installation draws power from the grid.
Hybrid (Grid tied with Storage) - These systems are grid connected, but also have some storage capacity by way of a small battery bank. They provide some measure of continuity when the grid goes down at the same time as there is not sufficient solar input.
Off-grid - These systems are suited to remote locations where a grid connection is not available/when there will be no continuous power supply in the grid. The battery bank is sized to provide a certain number of days of storage in the installation and the installation draw power from the storage batteries during the night or during days of intense cloud cover.
Solar Lantern : A solar lamp also known as solar light or solar lantern, is a lighting system composed of an LED lamp, solar panels, battery, charge controller and there may also be an inverter. The lamp operates on electricity from batteries, charged through the use of solar photovoltaic panel.
Solar street light: Solar-powered lighting consists of a solar panel or photovoltaic cell that collects the sun's energy during the day and stores it in a rechargeable battery.
