Installation Guide to Solar Fluorescent Light


Step 1

Find a suitable spot and mark it with a pencil, then use a power tool to punch the hole.


  • It needs to be installed on a wall or platform facing the sunlight.
  • Please note that there should be no shade around the solar panel.
  • There should be no additional light sources on the solar panel at night. Extra light will keep the solar panel charged, which will cause the light to turn off automatically.

Step 2

After determining the mounting position, use expansion screws to fix the bracket. All screws are packaged in an accessory kit.


  • Be sure to use a wrench to tighten the screws rather than doing it with your bare hands.
  • Be sure to check for looseness after installing the expansion screws.
adjust the solar panel angle

Step 3

Secure the solar panel to the bracket and adjust the installation angle.


  • In low latitude areas (e.g. India, Southern Asia, Central America, Africa), it is recommended to adjust the angle to 20-25 degrees.
  • In mid-latitude areas (e.g., Europe, northern United States), it is recommended that the angle be adjusted to 30-35 degrees.
  • In high latitude areas (e.g. Northern Europe, Canada), it is recommended to adjust the angle to 40 degrees
