LED Lighting, Far Infrared Heating & Solar Solutions

Energy Efficiency: Uses renewable energy from the sun, making it a sustainable and environmentally-friendly lighting option. It helps reduce reliance on traditional energy sources and lowers carbon emissions.

 Cost Savings: Eliminates the need for electricity, resulting in significant cost savings on energy bills. Once installed, solar lights operate for free, utilising the sun’s energy to power the LED lights.

 Easy Installation: Easy to install since they do not require any electrical wiring or connections. This makes them a convenient option for both residential and commercial settings, as they can be placed in various locations without the need for professional assistance. They reduce the need for deep trenches and cable infrastructure, this also enables for very swift installations that can take place at the end of construction works, thus reducing risks of damages.

Versatility: They available in various designs and types, including street lights, bollards, floods, spotlights, pathway lights, security lights, and even string lights. This allows for versatile use in different outdoor areas, such as gardens, carparks, and pathways, in fact anywhere you want a light there is a solar option for this.

 Low Maintenance: They have minimal maintenance requirements. They are designed to be weather-resistant and durable, requiring only occasional cleaning and battery replacement, if necessary. This saves time and effort compared to traditional wired lighting systems.

 Independent Operation: Solar lights operate independently from the electrical grid, making them reliable during power outages or in remote areas without access to electricity. This makes them suitable for emergency lighting or off-grid applications.

 Safety: They do not have any exposed wires or cables, reducing the risk of accidents, such as tripping or electrical shocks. They are also safer for outdoor use as they do not require digging or trenching for installation.

 Environmental Impact: Solar lighting reduces the carbon footprint and environmental impact associated with traditional lighting methods. By utilising clean and renewable solar energy, it helps in the global efforts to combat climate change and reduce air pollution.

A solar panel works by harnessing the energy from sunlight and converting it into electrical energy.

 Solar panels are made up of multiple solar cells, which are typically made of silicon. These cells have a thin layer of negatively charged material (n-type) and a thin layer of positively charged material (p-type). When sunlight hits the solar panel, it excites the electrons in the silicon atoms, causing them to move from the n-type layer to the p-type layer, creating an electric field.

 The electric field created by the movement of electrons in the solar cells causes the electrons to flow in a specific direction, from the n-type layer to the p-type layer. This flow of electrons creates a direct current (DC) of electricity.

 The solar cells in a solar panel are connected in series or parallel to increase the voltage and current output. Multiple solar panels are then wired together to form a solar array. The DC electricity generated by the solar panels is then sent through wiring and connections to an MPPT controller to handle the charge obtained and distribute it to the luminaire. The AC electricity from the MPPT is then sent to batteries for later use at night when needed.

The lifespan of an LED (Light Emitting Diode) light can vary depending on several factors, including the quality, usage patterns, and operating conditions. However, on average, they are known for their long lifespan compared to traditional incandescent or fluorescent lights.

 They typically have a lifespan of 25,000 to 50,000 hours or more. This means that if luminaire is used for an average of 8 hours per day, it can last anywhere from 8 to 17 years.

 The longevity of the diode is due to the way they produce light. Unlike traditional lights that use filaments or gas to produce light, LEDs use a semiconductor material that emits light when an electric current passes through it. This solid-state design makes them more durable and resistant to the effects of heat and vibrations.

 It’s important to note that while LED lights have a long lifespan, their brightness may gradually decrease over time. This is known as lumen depreciation, and all our INVO range of solar lights are tested to LM80 50,000hrs. However, even after many years of use, LED lights can still provide sufficient illumination for most applications.

We have available many designs and types of commercial solar lighting solutions from low power wall lights to high mast full power super bright floods and street lights. Most of the commercial ranges we supply come with adjustable brightness levels, where we can set light levels according to the environment and requirement. A typical street light maybe around 20 watts of power and 180 lumen of light per watt of power, so around 3,600 lumens. However as mentioned we can adjust most of our ranges to meet your needs

Yes, all the solar lights we supply are designed for working in the UK extreme weather conditions. From long dark nights in winter to bright daylight and random heat waves. In fact our solar solutions typically work between -20 degree and +48 Degree. With the added advantage of impact proof protected lens and even anti vandal protection, most of our solutions can face up to whatever the UK weather can throw at them.

This varies depending on the solution you need, from the wide angle long range flood lights that can reach up to 25 meters, to the small wall lights that can reach 3-5 meters. If you have a specific question about range and type of light to use, please contact us for advice and support.

We do not actually charge the lights; we send the power produced from the solar PV panels to the batteries. This is why it is so important to use high quality batteries as they are charged and discharged every day. We have seen many suppliers unknowingly using reject battery cells from old EV cars. All the batteries we use are brand new and in all our commercial ranges we use high capacity LIFEP04 with smart MPPT controllers. A typical commercial graded battery / light fitting will take between 5-7 hrs to fully charge, and then between 5-10 nights to discharge.

Yes, all the ranges we supply come with a combination of dusk till dawn backed up with either microwave or proximity sensor. Not only this but with many ranges we are also able to pre-set run times and timers to make sure you get the light you need at the right time and correct level for the environment you are within.


Yes, this is in fact one of the most common reasons that designers, architects and specifiers buy solar lights. Not only are they easy to mount as there are no cables or trenches, they are also fast to install. Most of the INVO ranges come ready assembled, meaning you just open the box, power it on and secure it to the column, wall or base. Also, as there are no electrical connections to the grid, you do not need to be an electrician to install them. Groundsmen, labours, maintenance teams and support staff can easily mount and fix a solar light in position.

Yes, we provide a market leading 5 year warranty on all parts apart from the battery, which comes with a 3 year warranty.  Most parts are on simple click plugs which means they can be swapped over by the end user very quickly and easily.  We hold stock of most parts on the shelf meaning we can offer a timely solution should any product fail. If we also supply and install your lighting for you then we provide 5 years onsite parts and labour warranty (3 years battery)

All our solar products are designed specifically for commercial applications.  This means we only use the best solar PV panels, ultra efficient LED and high-capacity batteries, to ensure we have a product that not only works now, but for many years to come.  Contact us for pricing on any of our range.

 And yes, in many cases commercial grade solar lights cost less than traditional LED street lights and bollards.

Yes, we have many reviews and lots of feedback from real clients and are happy to introduce you to them on request and where possible even offer site visits so you can see them in action. After 7 years of supplying commercial ranges of solar lighting we have many clients across many sectors.

If what you need is not within the website or on a specification sheet then yes upon request, we are happy to share any data that you may require that we do not already share. However, we are quite sure that most of the data you need to make an informed decision is already on the website. If you require a lighting design for a project please just ask and we will be able to take care of this for you.

We try to hold in stock ready for dispatch the most common solutions we sell, however as we also manufacture most of our ranges ourselves, we are able to offer bespoke solutions and make real design adjustments if needed. We are one of the few suppliers that offers a complete commercial range of street lights, bollards and flood lights of various designs, powers, functions and capabilities.

We are also able to offer the advanced solar engine range that can power a multitude of light fittings, from spots, to bollards to flood to sign lights.

Yes, we are one of the few suppliers that are able to not only adjust the brightness levels before the solutions are dispatched, but also with some ranges provide you with a remote control that enables you to have pre-set Winter and Summer modes at the press of a button.

As we design and manufacture many of the lights ourselves on our own production lines, we are able to offer pretty much any colour temperature you require. The most common temperature used for external lighting is currently 5000k, so this is what we tend to hold in stock. But there is a shift in the UK with a move towards warmer colours and for this reason we can offer 2200k, 2700k, 3000k and 4000k in most of our ranges.

Yes, however it is important to distinguish the difference in build quality between a residential designed solar product, compared to a commercially design product.  The requirements for commercial applications are much higher than residential, so we use a much higher-grade solar panel and battery solutions compared to those products which are solely designed for a residential market. That being said, our biggest clients are house builders and holiday parks, where our bollards complement their surroundings perfectly in terms of design.

 All the ranges we supply are commercially designed lighting solutions. This means they may not have the right aesthetics for the domestic market and may not be quite “on trend” with lighting fashions. That said some of the flood lights, wall lights and bollards can be used in and around residential properties and in fact most of the solar bollards we sell to the commercial market are used on holiday parks and new build estates where developers want easy installation and least amount of disruption.

Yes, we are able to offer support and guidance and even lighting designs and not just tell you what you need, but also show you what they will look like and what light levels you will achieve. Our gallery is the perfect place to visit as we showcase our ranges here and show you what the solar lights look like at night time and day time. All images we use are our own taken by us of our own installations around the UK.
