FAQ Commercial Solar Lighting

What kind of maintenance is involved with solar panels?

Maintaining solar panels is very simple since there is no mobile parts. A few washes a year using a hose to remove dust and debris is all that is needed to keep your panels operating efficiently for decades . It is not recommended to spray cold water on the surface during a hot day because it can crack the cells. Automated cleaners can also be programmed to periodically clean the panels.


What happens if my GenLight 54/108/120 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...


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.
