Product Description

The EnGo smart solar street light consists of 6 slim solar panels that are fixed tightly and vertically on a hexagon frame. It ensures 50% of solar panel will face sunshine at any time of the day. The vertically-mounted solar panels ensure that minimal dust or snow accumulates on the surfaces. The tower is equipped with Remote Management software and smart sensors that provide real-time monitoring and data collection.

Design Specifications

EnGo towers have 6 solar panels tightly fitted and in an almost vertical position, with a power rating of 40Wp or 50Wp per panel depending on the size. The off-vertical cluster arrangement of the panels makes them less vulnerable to high-winds, less likely to accumulated dust and grime, and easier to clean. The LED lights range from 30W power rating to 100W. A rechargeable battery developed by EnGo is employed along with an MPPT Controller.
