This powerful solar lighting system is specifically designed as an economical solution for application with a limited budget or for the large volume buyer. The SL12 is a complete solar street light system including the choice of a 15' or 20’ pole. This is a commercial grade solar street light designed with powerful optics and customized to suite a variety of applications. The LED luminaire uses a sleek, modular design with high output Philips Luxeon® T LEDs capable of producing up to 142 lumens/Watt and can be supplied with a Type I, II, III, IV or V distribution. The system is supplied with a pole or ground mountable metal lockable battery enclosure. The batteries and MPPT charge controller are housed securely within the battery enclosure. Solar Panel power and battery capacity selection depends on the chosen lamp type, the installation location, and lighting operation preferences. We offer a range of pole mounted solar panel options from 45W up to 180W total. We offer AGM or Gel type batteries with a range of capacity from 32Ah up to 92Ah. This system is a 24V system, so it requires two batteries. The system is controlled by a programmable MPPT control module. The light will come on automatically at sunset and will run until dawn or will stay illuminated for a set amount of time. The control module light operation can be customized to suite a variety of applications. Common options include dusk to dawn (subject to model selected), or operations for a set number of hours after sunset (from 1 to 12 hours) then turn off (or dim*) with the option of switching back on for a chosen amount of hours before dawn. *Optional dimming is also available which allows the light output to be reduced by a fraction instead of completely turned off during the middle of the night. Standard color of light fixture is gray. Custom paint colors and custom LED colors available by special order only. Standard color of light output is white. Please consult our engineers for specific component recommendations.
It is perfect for lighting up streets, parks, open areas, playgrounds, public areas, HOA communities and sub-developments and such like.

The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and usually set facing South at an appropriate angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. All solar lights must be used in a completely dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being 'defective' or 'not as described'. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
The product specifications above should be used as a general guide. We can offer modifications and changes to the specifications of this product if necessary. This may be required to meet your specific needs and/or due to the geographic location of the installation site. In locations where insolation levels are poor or lower than normal, a higher wattage solar panel and larger capacity batteries may be required. We offer product customization. MPPT, dual timer and dimming charge controllers are all available as optional extras. One or more motion sensors can also be added as an optional extra. Other options included UL listed or ETL certified components and the provision of Buy American Act (BAA & ARRA) compliance, if required. Photometric data, 3D renderings and planning of your lighting project is available. Please contact our sales department for more information before making your purchase.
