Gas is going higher each day, food in the grocery stores are also sky rocketing to never before seen prices, extra money you use to save is now going towards these two things to make ends meet each month. So how can you save money and still have great outdoor lighting? Answer to that is simple, solar lights. Use what God gives us everyday, the sun, and make it work for you and stop forking out money each month as your electric bill rises due to your current outdoor lighting. I would like to tell you about some of the uses, setups, and benefits outdoor solar lights
can do for you, and then I hope you choose to take part in using them.
The Benefits Of Solar Lights:
Take the word solar and understand its definition first. Solar means from sun. Solar lights operate by using radiation from the sun as a source of energy. The best benefit of using a solar light is saving you energy and like I described above saving you energy means cutting down on your electric bill costs. Another great aspect of solar lights “NO STRINGS ATTACHED”. You don’t have to worry about the outlet cord and you can place solar lights anywhere you see fit in your yard. I know most of you think you have to have the solar light placed in direct sunlight, but this is not true. I have two solar lights placed in the ground with bushes above them and they work great! Here is a question, can you get a suntan or burnt even if their are clouds in the sky that day? Answer is yes. Solar lights work the same way. They will still light up even if their is a partly, or even full cloud coverage that day.
Different Uses for Solar Lights:
Solar lights can be used in so many ways, however first you need to figure out what you need outdoor lighting for? What are you trying to achieve? If you need more light for where you walk, in walkways or sidewalks, solar lights can be used to border walkway path. We all know how dangerous a walkway can be in the dark and solar lights are great to help you guide your way while you are walking.
Solar lights also can be used to light up your doorway. Ever come home at night and wished you turned on your front porch light so you could see what key you need to use to open your door? I know I have done this more then I wish I did. There are many solar lights that are used just like sconces. Place one right beside your front door so you will never stumble for your keys again.
Who doesn’t love a well decorative back patio? If you have a patio that you use, you know as well as I do, harsh bright lights will cause the bugs to come by the truck load. You can use solar lights to create an intimate patio theme and not have the bright light to contend with.
Solar lights can also be used to light up a special or favorite plant or bush you have in your yard. There are many solar lights that point upward and allow you to illuminate light upward on to a plant or flower.
Setup for Solar Lights:
Setups for solar lights could be any more simpler for you. Most (at least all the solar light sets that I have bought) come with batteries included. An to answer your question about how often you have to change the batteries, hardly ever. I have a set of solar lights that I bought about four years ago and they are still working on the same batteries that they came with! How great is that!
Solar lights are all the rage these days. Make sure you tune into this growing fad and start using them today because the pros always out way the cons when it comes to outdoor solar lights!
