Solar panels transform sunlight into energy which is then used as a power source for lighting. The rechargeable batteries store this electrical power until it’s needed. Over the years, technological advancement in this sector has helped produce numerous items for a variety of different uses including security lighting and outdoor garden lighting.
Consider a few of the advantages of solar energy over that of oil:
As long as the sun continues to shine, we have ourselves a renewable resource of energy. Admittedly there will be fluctuations due to adverse weather conditions however, the sun will eventually reappear. Compare that to oil which is becoming increasingly hard to find.
It has to be one of the most peaceful ways of creating power. Solar cells make zero noise whereas drilling for oil is deafening.
Pollution is non-existant using solar energy. Compare that to the burning of oil which produces carbon dioxide, greenhouse gases and cancer causing carcinogens that are destroying our planet.
As they have no moving parts, solar panels/cells require very little maintenance and should therefore last a long time.
You may find that the cost of going solar is quite expensive initially however there is as yet no charge for sunlight. Oil on the other hand continues to soar in price due to the lack of supply.
Solar powered lights and other solar powered goods are also very simple to set up. You do’nt even need to stress about wires.
If you are looking to brighten up your yard or garden then solar lights are the perfect solution. Accent lights, path lanterns, garden lights and deck lights are just a few of the items to choose from. Accent lights tend to be the cheapest as they have the lowest wattage but even these need only 1 day of charging to give you 2 nights of light. Advanced technology has helped improve efficiency and produced less bulky designs. Your primary task is to ensure that the cells are placed in an area that gives them adequate sunlight. In summary, what better way is there to brighten up your home or workplace, save money and at the same time, help our planet?
