Solar lighting is a relatively inexpensive and sustainable alternative to traditional electricity lamps. Solar lights use the same basics that are used for solar heating, and may cut down costs and electricity bills substantially. This is also backed up by the fact that the government offers low-interest loans to purchase these lights. They are also environmentally-friendly and a greener alternative to electricity as they cut down on pollution.
Solar outdoor lamps are an excellent choice for outdoor landscaping, as this offers the opportunity to make use of the sun`s energy. Solar garden lights in particular are a popular choice, as they do not use electrical wiring and look smart and classy, and also cost far less. Solar garden lights are also referred to as solar lamps and generally receive sunlight during the day and then turn on at dusk, usually automatically, although they come with switches for on, off and automatic.
Solar landscape lamps are very easy to install, set up and relocate, although they may provide less electricity than line powered ones. Solar lights that come with LEDs are also well suited for landscape use, because due to the solid state design, LEDs emit even more light with temperature drops. Therefore, solar landscape lights outperform even low-voltage outdoor lights and fluorescent lights in this category, the last two are quite inefficient in cold weather conditions. In addition, traditional incandescent lights feature an average lifespan of around 3,000 hours, whereas LED-powered solar lights feature a jaw-dropping 100,000 hours.
Solar garden lights can be used in arrays to illuminate paths and driveways, to guide people along dark paths. These usually focus the light in a downward direction, and the user has a wide variety of options to display them, ranging from ground stakes to hanging hooks. Solar outdoor lights also come in a wide variety of designs and themes, which can be customized according to the user`s personal preferences. The on/off switches mean that the users can store the light for a future special occasion, such as a party, instead of squandering the light every night when it is not needed.
