Impressively, the research carried out by Hon Akinlaja and his team clearly showed that solar street lights are independent of the utility grid resulting to lessened operation costs. These means that these are wireless lights and are not connected to electricity provider.
The lights are dependent of the heat energy given off by the sun, storing as much of it throughout the day. Solar street lights require lesser maintenance than conventional street lights.
These have lower chances of overheating. Since solar wires do not have external wires, the risk of accidents is minimized. A lot of times, accidents happen to the personnel who fixes the street light. These can include strangulation or electrocution. Solar street lights are environment-friendly because its panels are solely dependent to the sun hence eliminating carbon footprints contribution.
Some parts of solar street lighting systems can be easily carried to remote areas making these more efficient and handy solutions to lighting problems especially when there is outage of public power supply.
This intervention has greatly received numerous commendations from the people of Ondo communities who are already saying Hon Akinlaja’s intervention is timely and has put them out of acute darkness especially at night and they have equally adjudged his interventions as shining example of democracy dividends.
