Obviously there is no electricity bill. solution. releasing electrical energy to power the LED luminaire – hence lighting the road. During the night. the battery is discharged. opportunities that were previously unachievable. affordable and reliable Total Cost of Ownership lighting systems at sites where the electricity grid is either LED and solar technologies offer cost and performance non-existent or unstable (for applications such as road lighting. Also of great relevance is that our solution does • Improving safety not require the installation of an electricity grid which is the major • Bringing communities together cost driver. the residential lighting. area lighting and security lighting).Philips Solar Lighting extends the day There is a desperate need for high-quality. but other cost benefits come into play. such as lower running costs Enhancing lives within the communities: (no re-lamping) and higher uptime in areas with an unstable • Increasing productivity electricity network. Electrical energy from panel Controller Battery Box + Battery Electrical energy from battery 2 Philips solar road . As a result. Philips Solar Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of our Solar Powered LED Lighting Powered LED Lighting Solutions are installed at sites with limited or Solutions can be significantly lower than a comparable grid-based no electricity. But that’s not all! Why LED? Solar power is environmentally friendly! • Low voltage (no conversion needed. therefore more efficient) • Fully dimmable • High Color Rendering index • Long lifetime • Reliable technology Solar Panel Solar Energy How the solar system works When the sun shines during the day. This contributes further to the cost-effectiveness of this innovative solar powered LED lighting solution. the solar panel LED Luminaire converts solar energy to electrical energy and stores Light on the road it in the battery.
