When you invest in outdoor lighting, you might be worried about how much energy you’ll be using to keep your yard illuminated. Well, that’s the beauty of green energy. Your outdoor lighting can collect energy from the sun and keep itself powered. So, are you ready to learn more about how you can keep your outdoor lighting bright with green energy? Let’s do it.
Solar power gives you options.
When you think solar power, you will probably think about those huge grids of solar panels. This is not always the case, especially when it comes to small outdoor lights. There are a ton of solar powered options available for anything from walkway lights to flood lights that can help you find your way around your garage. They usually attach to a small solar panel or they have one built in. These little panels collect the sunlight during the day and then light up at night. The bulbs that are typically inside of these lamps are LEDs or florescent. Neither one is particularly energy hungry, so the light they collect during the day should be sufficient.
Supplement your lights.
A great way to light up the night without sucking up any energy is use good old-fashioned fire. Tiki torches or fire pits can add some light when you need it. The downside of using this sort of lighting is that you can’t really control when it comes on or gets turned off. Oil lamps also can supplement what your solar lights are doing, but they can be a little dangerous if there are small children or pets running around.
