Frequently Asked Questions

Check out our great FAQs and Answers for our EnviroLight Large Solar Sign Lights below:

What should I do if my light is not turn on at night because of too much ambient light?

If your solar light is not lighting up at night because there is too much ambient light on the street, there is a solution for you! You can simply purchase a photo eye, place it in the shadow of the light and connect the lights it to the batteries. That will solve the problem caused by too much ambient light!

Where are our Genlights manufactured?

Our Genlights are manufactured overseas.  Right now 80% of solar products are manufactured overseas, making it more difficult to  acquire domestic products.

Do we sell an extension cord for our GenLight Series Lighting?

No, we do not sell an extension cord for our GenLight 108LED or GenLight 54LED lights.  The GenLight 108LED comes with 25 feet of cable between the light fixture and panel.  The GenLight 108LED comes with 13 feet of cable between the light fixture and panel.

What is the output in Lumens for are Genlights 54 LED and Genlights 108 LED?

Our Genlight 54 LED’s output 1,700 lumens per square foot.  Our Genlights 108 LED’s output 3,400 lumens per square foot.  A lumen is a measure of the total amount of visible light emitted by a source.  Visit our products to learn more about the Genlight 54 LED and the Genlight 108 LED.

How Do I Mount The Solar Panel For My GenLight?

The simplest way to mount the solar panel for your GenLight 108LED or  GenLight 54LED solar sign light is to use our single-arm side of pole mount.

This mounting bracket is perfectly sized for the solar panels that power each of our GenLight solar sign light models.

What is the difference between our Genlight 54 and our Genlight 108?

The GenLight 54 LED operates for a longer time per night, while the GenLight 108 LED has a brighter light output.

What happens if my GenLight 54/108 fixture dies before the solar panel does?

If the GenLight fixture stops working but it has been determined that the solar panel is still properly functioning, the battery in the light may have simply expired. The LED’s in our light fixtures are rated to last over 50,000 hours, which translates to over 2000 days of continuous 24/7 runtime. These lights do not die easily! If this is the case then a new replacement battery can be purchased (according to the specific light fixture) and replaced inside the casing of the light.

What is the arm on the GenLight 54 and 108 fixtures made of?

The rotatable arm on the GenLight 54 and GenLight 108 fixtures is made from steel, which allows it to be welded to frames in order to securely attach it to billboards. However, care should be taken to only weld the rotatable arm, as the body of the light is not made of steel.

How to clean off the solar panel?

You can use vinegar to clean off the solar panel (every year it good to clean the solar panel, takes 2-3 min).

What do I need to replace on my solar light?

Typically you need to replace your battery every 3-4 years depending on your climate location. The colder the climate, the more frequent you need to replace your batteries.

How long is the typical shelf life of an unused backup battery?

An unused solar backup battery can last well over a year if properly taken care of. Like any battery, one that is left depleted will eventually lose its ability to hold any charge at all. To combat this it is strongly recommended to use a trickle charger to slowly keep a battery charged part way to full. This should be done as often as possible but at minimum once a month to help ensure the life of the battery stays as long as possible.

1) I live at a high latitude, will these billboard lights work for me?

Absolutely.  Our headquarters are located in Upstate New York and we use several of these lights around our properties which work extremely well.  We also have several customers who use our billboard lights in the area.  The Northeast is located in a “low insolation” area.  Insolation is essentially a measure of the intensity of solar radiation at a given place.  At Silicon Solar, we have created high, medium, and low insolation solar billboard lighting kits that compensate for the intensity of the solar radiation in any location in the U.S.  Low insolation kits compensate for the reduced sunlight intensity by increasing the panel and battery bank sizes.  While these kits may cost slightly more than high insolation kits, Silicon Solar Guarantees a high output, high quality product that can illuminate your billboard through the night.  See our “How To” and “Learning Center” sections for more information.  In addition, each EnviroLight should be configured by a Sales Representative who can assist you in determining which panel configuration and battery backup are appropriate for your location and operation.

2) Will the EnviroLight Kits illuminate billboards during the winter?

Yes.  Our charging and storage systems were designed around insolation hours on December 21, the shortest day of the year.  However, our kits can have fully customizable running times (not recommended to exceed 8 hours in winter months).  Furthermore, the charging systems are designed to last for 2 days of operation with no sun exposure.  Therefore, even after 2 consecutive days of completely overcast and cloudy weather, our lights will still illuminate your billboard.

3) How bright is each EnviroLight?

Extremely bright.  Each lighting head unit utilizes ultra bright LEDs to produce 100000 LUX or roughly 10000 lumens per square foot.  Each unit brightly illuminates 30 feet of signage.
