1. Initial investment: The initial investment of Solar Street Lights is usually higher than that of ordinary street lights, because Solar Street Lights require solar panels, batteries, controllers and other components, which will increase the cost. However, with the advancement of technology and large-scale production, the cost of Solar Street Lights is gradually decreasing.

2. Installation Cost: Solar Street Lights can be relatively inexpensive to install because they don’t require laying cables and complicated wiring work. The installation costs of ordinary street lights may include cable laying, trenching and trenching, etc. These costs may be relatively high.
