'There used to be no street lights in the village, and it was very dark at night. Now the lights are turned on at 7 o'clock in the evening, illuminating the roads in the village.' said Zhang Jinqin, a 48-year-old villager. After installing solar street lights, everyone was willing to go out at night. , This kind of lamp does not have to pay electricity bills. To
The 'Thousand Villages Plan' is a project that aims to introduce public green lighting systems into villages in underdeveloped regions around the world. Since its inception in 2009, nearly 100 villages have used solar LED street lights, benefiting from this clean energy, off-grid use, and energy-saving and efficient light source, which has since ended the problem of night road lighting that plagued village names. The installation of solar street light
s not only solves the problem of villagers' difficulty in traveling at night, but also creates convenient conditions for some people to open farmhouses and develop tourism.
'It used to be dark at night. It was not safe for adults and children to go out at night. Who wants to come and play?
Wu Changhua, President of the Climate Group Greater China, said that the 'Thousand Villages Plan' not only solves the problem of nighttime lighting that plagued the countryside, but also prolongs the activity time of the villagers and provides conditions for local farmhouses, agriculture or ecotourism, and night leisure activities. , To a certain extent, promote local economic and social development.
Energy-saving and emission-reduction director Li said that the current equipment cost for a set of solar LED street lights is about 6,000 yuan, and the manual installation fee is 1,000 yuan, which adds up to about 7,000 yuan. The later operation and maintenance are about half a year, and the cost is not high. A set of traditional street lamps has more than 4,000 yuan, but with the addition of cables, manual digging and other expenses, the cost is comparable. After the operation, you have to pay for the electricity, and the later maintenance costs are relatively high. To
The solar energy system engineer involved in the project said that compared with traditional street lights, the cost of solar street lights is slightly more expensive, but the installation cost is low. Because it does not require wiring, it is especially suitable for mountain villages with weak power supply systems. More importantly, solar street lights do not consume electricity, which saves villagers from the burden of electricity bills.
This project demonstrates a solution to the lighting problem in rural areas, indicating that the introduction of clean energy in rural areas is technically feasible and the actual effect is significant. The use of energy-saving and environmentally-friendly green energy not only makes farmers’ lives more convenient, but also contributes to energy conservation and emission reduction.
