The benefits of LED solar lighting
LED solar lighting has been growing in popularity over many years, and as
the technology has improved, so have the quality and variety of lights
available to you. As well as providing extra security and illumination for
your garden, solar lights can be ornate, beautiful and bring with them a
wealth of additional benefits.
A greener choice
WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all much more aware about the impact that weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re making on the planet, and solar lights are a fantastic green alternative. During the day they soak up the sunÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s rays to charge their batteries, then unleash the energy at night. That means they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need an outside energy source, plus the batteries are recyclable when they reach the end of their working lives.
No cost to install
Because they donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t need wiring up in any way, solar lights cost nothing to install! There's no need for an electrician, so you simply take them home, position them where you would like them go and sit back in the evening to enjoy the results.
Battery technology has come on in leaps and bounds, meaning the batteries in your solar lights will last much longer than they would have done even a handful of years ago. That means theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re an incredibly low-maintenance lighting choice. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll rarely need to change the batteries and all you need to do to keep them in good working order is give them a clean now and then.
Nobody likes energy bills. By choosing solar lights for your garden instead of wired lighting, you can save yourself a pretty penny in electricity fees. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll get the same effect as wired lights, but thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s next to no cost in terms of installation and maintenance.
Choose where you place them
Wired outdoor lighting systems have their limits, because youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve got to keep your lights close to their power source and see the cables are carefully situated. With solar lights, you can choose to position them just about anywhere in your garden. As long as theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re going to get full sun for a proportion of the day, the possibilities are boundless and they can be sited to create real ambiance in your garden or patio area.
The range of solar lights now available is incredible, with some beautiful and ornate designs which are really pleasing on the eye. YouÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll easily find solar lights to your taste and style, to see your garden looks magical when the sun goes down.
