Solar Garden Light

Are you concerned about the integrity of the environment or perhaps looking for new ways at benefiting from the energy the environment has to offer? Do you already own a specific energy system, and would like to lower your carbon emissions?

Solar garden lights work through what is known as the photovoltaic (PV) effect. The PV effect is the method that sunlight generates energy in solar cells (also called photovoltaic cells).

Solar garden lights use a small photovoltaic panel you see at the top of the light. This panel draws the sunlight in, and then charges and stores the energy it makes into the battery under the PV panel in the light. As it charges throughout the day, it stores enough energy to light a walkway or a garden path throughout the night, repeating the cycle again when the sun rises.

Where Can Solar Garden Lights Be Placed?

Solar garden lights can be used anywhere it will receive sunlight throughout the day. When planning your landscaping, choose a location for your solar garden lights that will get ample sunlight. For the most long-lasting and effective night-time illumination, make sure that the solar garden lights are not shaded by trees or structures that may interfere with exposure to direct sunlight. A south exposure is best. If fully charged, solar garden lights can many hours of illumination on summer nights.
