Here's a great innovation in street lighting: self contained streetlights that are solar powered.

Implications - These do not require underground wiring at all, which is beneficial when it comes to keeping installation costs down. There are 10 squared solar panels fixed on the top of extended arms that branch out like a tree. These panels charge the built-in batteries which power the LED lights. The benefits of using of LEDs is that it emits less pollution since it generates direct lighting. The Solar Powered Tree Chargers is a concept that will help conserve power and make the streets look more interesting and unique in its own way. Stylish and environmentally conscious, these lights are worth installing for any location.
