Why You Should Go Green with Solar Lighting

Solar power is a great method of harnessing the sun’s to illuminate your home.  Outdoor solar lights normally have a small solar panel that captures the sun’s rays which are then converted into storable energy within an internal battery. This is a great way of lighting your home using renewable energy. These are some of the reasons why you should get on the ‘green’ bandwagon.

Long Lasting 

Solar lighting often uses LED lights which are much more efficient than incandescent lights. LED lights emit light in a controlled manner. This gives the bulbs a longer life span. So, if you install solar lights you are less likely to be replacing bulbs on a regular basis.

Green Energy

Solar energy is eco-friendly. The sun is the main energy source for this kind of power which makes it renewable. You do not need a connection to the national power grid to access solar lighting. They also do not give off any harmful chemical into the atmosphere which is a major plus for anyone who is environmentally conscious.

Most outdoor solar lighting fixtures are fitted with special sensors that turn them on as soon as it gets dark. This means that you do not always have to remember to turn them on and off.  It also reduces the chances of wastage.

Outdoor solar lights are standalone fixtures that do not need cabling or connection to power outlets. This makes them quite easy to install or shift from one place to another.


Solar lights come in stylish designs and colors. This means that they in addition to their functionality, they can also be used as décor fixtures.
