We are a leading manufacturer of solar lighting solutions across the globe and are fully versed in the benefits of solar lighting.

Despite this, we often hear misconceptions of solar including:

  • Solar lighting doesn’t work. The systems fail after only a year.
  • Solar lighting doesn’t produce as much light as my grid-connected light.
  • My solar light isn’t working and I can’t get any customer service.
  • Solar panels on bus shelters are ugly and unnecessary.
  • Solar lighting is too expensive.

These are what we term, solar myths. They taint the industry with misinformation, which is why we decided to craft this Solar Myth Series. So sit back, grab a coffee, and read on as we debunk these myths one at a time.

    “The new Urban Solar improvements and technology have increased ridership more than 20 percent and decreased costs by about 35 percent.”

    “Initial costs to supply and install these lights are lower compared to conventional systems. We will do more of these installations as pathway lighting needs arise.”
