Looking into buying an All-in-One Solar Street Light this 2020, but you have no idea how much it would cost you? If yes, you’ve landed on the right page!

A lot of us easily get excited with a new technology, but when faced with a higher investment cost, we tend to back away.

For one, solar street lights have gotten a lot of attention, but not many people wanted to use them in the past. Some of the reasons were: higher cost, unreliability and difficulty to harness the sun’s energy.

In recent years however, with so much improvement in solar street light battery, LED lighting technology, built and capabilities, there’s no reason to back out.

In this article, we’ve covered the typical cost of high-quality All-in-One street light from different manufacturers in different countries. We’ve also demonstrated how much it costs compared with traditional street lights. At the end of this article, you will have an idea which solar LED street light to choose for your application.

Solar Street Light Cost Comparison Based on Specifications

Generally, the price of a solar street light will depend on its power rating, quality and brand of its components, solar panel quality, LED lamp efficiency, and pole material.

When you are looking for a reliable manufacturer who offers mid to high-end quality, have a look at the specifications. Mid-range to high-end street lights are usually the best options as you’ll get your money’s worth. So you should limit your options within this range.

LED Specifications vs. Cost

For starters, see that the integrated solar street lights have LED lamps for illumination with a lighting efficiency of 150lm/watt and above. LED solar street lights are not only more efficient than CFL street lights, but are also more cost-effective. They also hold a promising future as they are projected to decrease in cost and increase in efficiency as seen in the graph below.

This means that whenever you would need to replace the LED of the solar powered street light (an average of 12 to 15 years assuming that you use it for 12 hours a day), you’d save a lot more in the future than when you buy CFL street lights.

Below, we have listed the typical specifications of high-quality All-in-One solar street lights with their typical price range.
