Why solar? Why not? Solar lighting requires littler or no electricity and no wires. They last a long time, they look good, they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and configurations and they are the ideal way to light your outdoor space.
They work when their photovaltaic cells absorb the sun throughout the day and then store that energy. Once it is dark, the bulb comes on and you have light. Because they need to suck up the sunlight to work, they should be placed somewhere they can get a lot of light, but otherwise the portable ones can be used almost anywhere.
Use solar lights to line a pathway, they will get you where you are going safely and without wires to trip on, You can also use solar for security lights as they can turn on at when they detect a motion. A robber may think he or she is coming to a dark house only to be in for a rude awakening once those lights come on! They can also be used in your landscaping, either in between flowers and shrubs as accent lighting or as a spotlight to highlight a specific area of your garden. Perhaps you want to spotlight your pool area or a particularly pretty part of the landscaping, the choice is yours.
Solar lights have come a long way and now they come in string lights too. Before if you wanted to string lights outside you’d have to be near an outlet and have cords to hide, but no more. Solar string lights come in a variety of designs from little mason jars to bulbs to party lanterns with new designs coming into stores all the time. They are also available in Christmas colours so you can decorate your home for a fraction of the cost of regular lights, all without the use of electricity and again, no pesky wires to worry about that will wreck the look of the display.
Solar lights can also be in lanterns that you can have on the patio, on a table or hanging around the yard. They bring pretty light to your decor without the need for bulky or annoying regular lights that won’t blend in as nicely.
When you are looking to light your outside world, look no further than solar lights. You’ll be glad you did and the outside will never look nicer!
