Gallery: Solar Cynergy Solar LED Paver Lights

 

Solar Cynergy’s new line of solar LED lights is an eco-friendly, reliable and smart alternative to traditional street lights and home garden lights. Run entirely on solar energy, there’s no battery or complicated wiring involved, simply place the unit in a sunlit area and you can use the sun’s rays to light up anything from your front yard and drive way to dangerous intersections and crosswalks.

The solar unit charges during the day and turns on automatically at dusk. A single day of weak sunlight is enough to provide lighting for several days. The lights come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors for residential, commercial and city applications. The lights are weather resilient (working conditions –4 to 158º F), durable enough to be driven on and if that’s not enough, they come with a 10-year warranty and an expected lifetime of 25+ years.

A six-pack of round halogen white lights retails for $699.99 on SmartHome.com

    Can your streetpavers be used to generate power instead of lights?

    i think so solar street lights is one of the better source of light for developing countries with any energy charges
    our company name is Alternate Energy Systems Corporation.

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for the comment. We use 10 milliWatt LEDs so our lighting units act as the perfect non-invasive accent. We were concerned with light pollution as well, so we made sure that our units would not be disturbing the night skies.

    My only complaint with these lights is that they would contribute significantly to light pollution at night. This is a major problem in cities and it is irresponsible to sell a fixture that directs all its light skyward.

    hey everyone!

    thanks for taking the time to learn more about our solar LEDs. You’ve highlighted a few issues with regards to reflecting over an entire surface. Being that our RSC fixtures are embedded flush into the surface and emit a solid output of light (unlike traditionally sharp points of LED light), glare bombs should be avoided.

    If any of you are interested I can pass along some video reviews of our line as well.

    Thanks again and if you have any questions, feel free to contact me at john@solarcynergy.com!

    Where do you live? In states with low or no snowfalls, the far left lane has reflectors inserted into the roadway in the left-lane line. They reflect headlight beams and protrude hign enough to warn drivers they are drifting into the on-coming lane or the road shoulder. They can’t use these in areas frequently used by snowplows. Is this the issue?

    sean” I’d say current street lights that turn into glare bombs on wet paved roads are pretty terrible. this is because they are pointed downward at a perfect enough angle to cause such glare. perhaps if LEDs are coincident with the wt surface, they will not create this same glare bomb effect.

    there have been several studies conducted by the LRC (lighting research center) on roadway and transportation lighting. check it out: http://www.lrc.rpi.edu/programs/Futures/LF-Auto/roadway.asp

    if you look on solarcynergy’s site, their RSC line is absolutely beautiful and a perfect complement to modern designs.

    very clean and simple.

    It seems these would be really useful in a hard rain, especially at night, but not so great in snow. Still, good thinking!

  14. eric November 5, 2007 at 6:55 pm

    these would only work on roads in warmer climates….

    otherwise they would all disappear in the first snowfall as the snowplow scrapes them away!

    yeah, i would think that lights down the middle of a road would get confusing with oncoming headlights. but the true applications of these lights are exciting. perhaps the overhead lamps on highways could be replaced with solar.

  16. Ro November 5, 2007 at 5:53 pm

    Sean, you think so? Hmmm, I’m not sure. Like I said, it was off the top of my head, so I didn’t think it through.
    Time for a test I’d say! :)

  17. Sean November 5, 2007 at 4:55 pm

    LEDs on a reflective surface like a highway, covered in water and oil, would cause the lights to reflect over the entire surface of the road.

  18. Ro November 5, 2007 at 12:55 pm

    I’ve always been annoyed with the fact that the dividing lines on highways aren’t that visible when it’s raining.
    Using lights to mark the lane you’re in, would be very helpful, wouldn’t it?

    Just an idea off the top of my head for these lovely little LEDs. :)
