The use of solar lighting is a cost effective choice, and it can be used to make a statement about responsible energy use.
Not only does installing solar lights at a home or business office save money, it also spreads interest in solar technology to other members of a community. It is never too soon to start saving money in terms of energy costs. Browse our selection for hundreds of solar lighting products.
How solar lighting works
Solar powered lighting consists of a photovoltaic cell or solar panel. The solar panel or cell collects sunlight during the day and stores it in a rechargeable battery. When dusk falls, the converter can sense that there is no more energy from the sun and will automatically power on the LED light using the energy stored in the rechargeable cell battery.
Solar landscape lighting is actually simpler to install than a traditional wired light setup. One of the biggest advantages is that each lighting unit is self-contained, so you don't have to run wiring back into your house or call to have the buried cables in your yard marked. Most often, installing solar outdoor yard lights requires little more than pushing the light into the ground. Find a sunny location and let the sun do the rest of the work! Since solar landscape lights are competitively priced with traditional models, there is no reason to opt for the more complex, harder to maintain system of grid-tied lights. Solar landscape lighting is an ideal and cost efficient way to provide accent lighting to brighten up your garden, driveway or walkway.
Solar sign lights and solar address signs are useful for exactly what their name implies. The solar panel builds a charge during the day, and when the light falls below a certain threshold it switches the light on, illuminating your sign without adding a cent to your power bill after it is installed. Current models keep the light on throughout even the darkest winter nights.
Solar lighting in the home provides free, renewable energy with every flick of a light switch. Solar energy is not simply renewable, but also inexhaustible. It is interesting to consider that, were everyone to utilize the sun's free energy for lighting and general electricity, one of the purposes for observing daylight saving time would be gone.
Of course, the extra light available in the evenings may be enough of an advantage to keep daylight saving time around. Regardless, many would simply appreciate the savings which the use of solar lighting produces.
Solar lights are a breeze to install and require virtually no maintenance. If a solar light fails, most often you just replace the batteries. The bulbs in your solar lights rarely wear out.
