Be More Environment-Friendly
It would be great to think that in years to come we can wean ourselves off the need for fossil fuels and use the likes of solar, wind and water power for all of the planets’ energy needs rather than coal or oil. Indeed, it may be an absolute necessity. One of the first steps in this process is making the adjustments to our own lives and in our own homes. The solar lights that are becoming more popular may not save the world but they are a baby-step along the way.
If you have electrical lighting outside your home, on porch-ways, in yards and gardens, lighting up driveways or pathways, then there is an alternative now – and that’s these solar lights. They are small units designed to capture, store and release the power of the sun into light. Therefore, unlike your standard lights, they do not add to your monthly electricity bill and use absolutely no external power source. Everything they need is contained within the one small waterproof lighting case.
The other beautiful thing about these units is that they are so easy to fix up. There is no wiring needed, no connecting up to the electricity supply. Take the light from the box and stick it in the ground or use the mount provided to attach it to wall or other feature of your yard. Nothing could be easier. They even turn themselves on when it gets dark so there’s not even a switch to bother about.
A common use is as solar driveway lights where a pack of 6 or 8 of these little lights will line the driveway, guiding the driver into the carport after night falls. Later in the night, when everyone’s safely home in bed, the power will have been used up and they will go to sleep again until the next day’s sunshine, which will power them up ready to go again at dusk
