Solar Lights

Solar Lights

During the summer months, barbecues and open-air parties are common. Some outdoor lighting helps to set the right ambiance for these fun gatherings, and allows the party to continue into the evening. Unfortunately, having electric lights installed is often expensive, and running them causes energy bills to rise. A good alternative is solar lighting, which is available in a wide range of styles and colours, and has many benefits compared to electric lighting.

Solar lights have small panels that use sunlight to charge a battery. The batteries store enough charge throughout the day to provide illumination for up to 10 hours, although this period varies based on weather conditions and the positioning of the solar panels.

Solar lighting is incredibly convenient, allowing homeowners to install the lights wherever they want without any concerns about proximity to a power source. Solar lights are a good choice for use around ponds and swimming pools, or in out of the way locations such as a "secret garden." As an additional benefit, solar lights continue to operate even in the event of a power outage, ensuring there is always adequate lighting in the garden.

Solar lights are an excellent way for homeowners to reduce their carbon footprint. The lights charge throughout the day, and then run off stored energy. This means homeowners are able to light their gardens through the night with no additional energy consumption.
When lighting is installed in the garden the effects on wildlife are often overlooked. Light pollution from inappropriately positioned security lighting is often the worst. Many insects, including Moths, navigate by using light sources, such as the moon and may become disorientated by artificial light. Many Bat species avoid lit areas, and the breeding cycle of the glow worm may be disrupted by artificial light. Solar lighting emits low-intensity light that is less likely to affect wildlife.
