Solar garden lighting is being widely used by most homes, commercial spaces and office buildings. It is green and clean energy and every individual wants to adopt these green techniques and do their bit to save the environment from further degradation and tap the natural resources available in abundance.
Solar energy can be tapped, stored and used effectively especially for outdoor lighting. It helps in cutting costs by way of huge electric bills and also prevents pollution. The solar cells that are part of the newer technology are even better as they allow the lights to burn for an increased period of time and are capable of powering increased wattage as well. They are a much better option when compared to low voltage landscape lighting as well.
These solar lights are long lasting and powerful as well, depending on the wattage of the bulbs as well as the storage capacity of the solar cells. At least 5 to 7 hours of sunlight would be required each day to power the lights through the night. Most of this information will be available either on the packaging or in the company’s website. These lights also come as a single piece and can be installed one at a time.
You will also have the freedom to choose the placement of lights as there is no wiring that is required. This also helps save on costs as a lot of money can be saved on wiring and transformers. The solar lighting is especially useful in huge tracts of land where lights will have to be placed in remote corners. Low voltage lights generally use little electricity but it still does show up on the bill each month. Hence, by choosing solar energy, you will be choosing a green, renewable energy source that is natural, found in abundance and will not deplete in the years to come.
