  5. Solar Lights Blog

    Solar lights are an easy and affordable way to add outdoor lighting to your landscape or garden. With solar lights you do not have to run electrical wires or hire an electrician, just simply install your solar outdoor lights in an area that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. At night the solar light will turn on automatically and can illuminate for approx. 8 – 10 hours. With solar light there is virtually no maintenance required except for occasional cleaning the solar panel surface to keep it free of dust and dirt, and replacing the batteries when required.

    All of the solar lights on the market today are equipped with a small photocell (solar panel) device built-in to the fixture that converts sunlight into electrical energy. This energy is stored in highly efficient rechargeable batteries, used to light the solar light at night. All solar lights on the market have a built in sensor that will detect darkness or low light levels and will automatically switch the light on at night. If the area does not get dark enough at night the solar light will not come on. When installing your solar lights make sure there are no other light sources near by that can affect the photocell sensor, because if it is not dark enough the fixture may not automatically switch on.
