A solar street lamp is a lamp technology that utilizes solar cell to obtain electrical energy during the daylight hour by solar radiation and then use the electrical energy to provide light at night. Semiintegrated lamp tries to overcome complicated installation and expensive price of normally solar street lamp. Semi-integrated solar street lamp only integrated solar cell, controller, and battery, while lamp is separated using cable. This configuration makes semi-integrated lamp cheaper and easier for installation that is suitable for rural area. Therefore, in this paper we develop semi-integrated type of solar street lamp. The illumination of semi-integrated lamp was measured using lux meter. The power of the lamp was calculated to meet the energy needs for 12 hours. The results show that the semi-integrated solar street lamp with low power LED ~2W has been successfully developed. The solar lamp can be automatically turned on for around 12 hours, from 5:50 PM to 5:31 AM (UTC+7). The illumination average of the lamp is 17.42 lux with 6.97 lux deviation. The measurement result of illumination shows that the solar street lamp has maximum distance of more than 140 cm with 230 cm high of lamp.
