Solar Outdoor Lighting

May 12th, 2009 · No Comments · Lighting Tips, Outdoor Lighting

We currently rely too heavily on fossil fuels in the United States. These energy sources are not renewable and will soon dwindle unless we begin using other forms of energy, such as the sun. Solar energy is infinitely available and can be captured and used for a variety of electrical needs. The benefits of solar energy include; environmental benefits, energy that can not be used up, job creation, improved economy and energy security.

The suns energy can be captured for use in lighting and there are several available options for solar powered lighting. Outdoor lighting is the perfect place to start. Solar lighting is quick and easy to install since there is no wiring and it won’t add to your electrical bill. Solar fixtures employ a photovoltaic cell that captures the sunlight and converts it into an electrical current which supplies the lamp.

Solar power is also surprisingly dependable; it’s never too cloudy to collect solar energy, even when it’s raining. The fixtures do not require any maintenance, and can be installed anywhere.
