Do solar led lights work in winter
Will solar-powered LED street lights, security lights are affected in winter? And how do solar LED lights work in winter?
Solar street lights rely on solar panels to receive heat from the sun, convert the obtained heat into electrical energy and store it in the solar battery packs. When December arrives, the weather has become increasingly cold, and the sunshine becomes weak. Many people will feel that in the harsh winter in the north and the sun is dim, solar lights’ winter storage is weakened, is the solar heat that solar street lights can receive limited? Will the solar street light not work properly in winter?
In fact, under normal conditions in winter, solar street lights won’t be affected in any way.
It is considered that outdoor solar light with battery backup can still work well in winter, and it is best to clean it up manually or mechanically when there is snow on the solar panel. And to ensure good lithium battery cold temperature performance, it is best to put the battery pack into the waterproof street light battery box. However, if it encounters snow, the winter street lamps may be slightly affected, especially in Northeastern China, where there is heavy snow in winter, once the solar panels are covered with thick snowflakes, it will prevent the panels from receiving sunlight. As a result, the solar street light does not have enough heat to convert into electricity for the street light to illuminate.
In addition, in extremely cold weather, the activity of the outdoor solar battery storage will be weakened accordingly. Except for the extremely cold weather in Northeast China, extreme weather in northern countries is rare, so it can be said that solar street lights are basically unaffected in winter.
What to do with solar lights in winter? In most parts of the northern country, if there is light snow or sleet, the solar street lights can be used normally, and you can ignore it; if you encounter extreme snowstorms, you can also slightly clear the snow on the panels to avoid covering the solar cells. The panels form shadow areas, resulting in the uneven conversion of solar panels.
