Solar lamps can be easier for customers to install and maintain as they do not require an electricity cable. Solar lamps can benefit owners with reduced maintenance cost and costs of electricity bills. Solar lamps can also be used in areas where there is no electrical grid or remote areas that lack a reliable electricity supply.There are many stories of people with lung disease, eye deterioration, burns and sometimes even death simply because they do not have a healthy alternative to light at night. Women have felt unsafe walking to the toilet outside after dark. Babies are being delivered by midwives using only a candle, and students cannot study when the sun goes down for lack of light leading to increased illiteracy and perpetual poverty. These are the realities for over 1 billion people around the globe. Lack of lighting equates to continued poverty felt around the world
Energy efficiency
LED lights to use about 50 per cent less electricity than traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen options, resulting in substantial energy cost savings, especially for spaces with lights that are on for extended periods. LEDs also aim light in a specific direction unlike conventional bulbs, which emit light—and heat—in all directions (because LEDs are mounted on a flat surface, they emit light hemispherically rather than spherically). This directional lighting capability reduces wasted light and energy.
Extended life
Unlike incandescent lighting, LEDs don’t “burn out” or fail, they merely dim over time. Quality LEDs have an expected lifespan of 30,000–50,000 hours or even longer, depending on the quality of the lamp or fixture. A typical incandescent bulb lasts only about 1,000 hours; a comparable compact fluorescent lasts 8,000 to 10,000 hours. With a longer operational life, LEDs can reduce labour costs of replacing bulbs in commercial situations, achieving a lower maintenance lighting system.
Cold temperature operation
LEDs love the cold, unlike fluorescent lamps. At low temperatures, the higher voltage is required to start fluorescent lamps, and luminous flux (the perceived power or intensity of light) is decreased. In contrast, LED performance increases as operating temperatures drop. This makes LEDs a natural fit for refrigerated display cases, freezers and cold storage spaces in addition to outdoor applications such as the parking lot, building perimeter and signage. DOE testing of an LED refrigerated case light measured 5 per cent higher efficacy (the efficiency of a light source in lumens-per-watt, like miles-per-gallon) at -5°C, compared to operation at 25°C.
Without filaments or glass enclosures, LEDs are breakage resistant and largely immune to vibrations and other impacts. Traditional lighting is usually contained in a glass or quartz exterior, which can be susceptible to damage. LEDs, on the other hand, tend not to use any glass, instead, they are mounted on a circuit board and connected with soldered leads that can be vulnerable to direct impact, but no more so than mobile phones and similar small electronic devices.
Instant on
Most fluorescent and HID lamps do not provide full brightness the moment they’re switched on, with many requiring three minutes or more to reach maximum light output. LEDs come on at 100-per cent brightness almost instantly, however, and with no re-strike delay. This can be advantageous following a power outage or anytime employees open a building during early morning hours when it is still dark outside.
Rapid cycling
Traditional light sources tend to have a shorter lifespan the more they’re switched on and off, whereas LEDs are unaffected by rapid cycling. In addition to flashing light displays, this capability makes LEDs well suited for use with occupancy or daylight sensors.
It can take more than a few dollars to make commercial fluorescent lighting systems dimmable, but LEDs, as semiconductor devices, are inherently compatible with controls. Some LEDs can even be dimmed to 10 per cent of light output while most fluorescent lights only reach about 30 per cent of full brightness. LEDs also offer continuous, opposed to step-level, dimming (where the shift from the 100-to-10-per cent light output is smooth and seamless, not tired).
No IR or UV Emissions
Less than 10 per cent of the power used by incandescent lamps is actually converted to visible light; the majority of the power is converted into infrared (IR) or radiated heat. Excessive heat and ultraviolet radiation (UV) presents a burn hazard to people and materials. LEDs emit virtually no IR or UV. Rapid advancements in LED lighting technologies, with more improvements on the horizon, have resulted in lowered costs and increased reliability of LEDs. And while it may be tempting to assume LEDs are the right choice for all applications because of their energy efficiency, selection should be based on a combination of factors, including light quality and distribution, dimmability, and expected lifetime.
BONUS | Intelligence 
Today, light can do so much more than brighten our path. It can lighten our impact on the environment, make our surroundings more secure or boost the comfort and productivity of any indoor space. Pairing LED lighting with intelligent sensors and controls can help build smarter, more sustainable solutions. 
Color Without Compromise
--The Autonomous Network Dimming system enables luminaries to communicate together in a wireless network to provide dynamic profile dimming. The dimming profile can easily be changed by simply connecting wirelessly a laptop to one luminaries without using any tools. The new configuration will be deployed to all the luminaries in the network
--The solution is a remote control system for monitoring, metering and managing a lighting network. It is a unique combination of state-of-the-art technology and an easy-to-use web interface to control each luminaries at all times from anywhere in the world. Thanks to bi-directional communication, the operating status, energy consumption and possible failures can be monitored. Thanks to its open source Zigbee technology and its flexible MySQL workflow, the system can easily be associated to third party systems through data bridges. This flexibility
