Solar Lighting

Lower your power expenses and your carbon footprint with affordable, bright and long-lasting solar lights. Solar lighting is not just the lighting of the future: It is the lighting for right now.

Today's super-efficient LED (light emitting diode) fixtures combined with the latest solar panel technology means that you'll enjoy the same brightness and dependability of conventional lighting, but without the monthly electric bill, wiring or an electrician. 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.

One of the main reasons daylight saving time began was to save energy. The common sense science behind this observance was that the least amount of electricity is used while people are in bed, sleeping (no lights, etc.) By springing time forward, the duration between sunset and bedtime is lessened. The brighter it is before bedtime, the lesser lighting will be necessary for daily business.

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.

This is true on an individual scale as well as on a governmental one. There have been many cultural and political initiatives taken to reduce energy use before and since the conception of daylight saving time. The United States has had varying energy policies since the colonial days, beginning with standard procedure for timber and coal use. In more recent years, three energy policy acts have been passed in 1992, 2005, and 2007.

It is never too soon to start saving money in terms of energy costs. Solar lighting can help by reducing reliance on fossil fuels and the electrical grid. In addition to this, it works to save the environment. There is no risk of depleting the planet's resources, nor any production of harmful waste or emissions. Solar lighting generally pays for itself with power savings in the first year. Not only is solar lighting cost effective, the many charming designs will add beauty to your home or garden.

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.
