With the sun beginning to reappear as we head towards Spring, have you considered solar powered lighting?
Having security lights or decorative lighting for your home can sometimes become costly when you want them on regularly. One solution is to harness the infinite power source in the sky, the Sun.
Solar power gives you a vast array of benefits:
- Cost: Solar power is free! With no cost for the power, this technology can end up saving you a great deal of money. In addition to that, there is often far less installation required than a mains powered alternative which increases savings even further.
- Eco-friendly: Solar power is a renewable and clean energy source that produces no harmful gases and has very little negative impact on the environment.
- Low voltage: Solar typically uses 12 or 24V DC, which is far safer than the higher mains voltage lights. Also, because of the lower voltage, they tend to be paired with more efficient low voltage lighting methods like LEDs. LEDs can provide high the same level of brightness and quality lighting as more traditional methods but at a fraction of the power usage.
- Availability: The Sun is always there during the day. Even when it’s cloudy, the process of insolation means there will still be energy to absorb. Despite positioning being an issue for fixed PV lights, some lights can be powered by a separate remote panel, so the light can go anywhere, even in the shade. There are even technologies being developed today that are converting conventional roofing and windows into smart photovoltaic cells.
With climate change becoming a more pressing issue than ever before, it is increasingly important that renewable, clean sources of energy are taken advantage of. It can be difficult to imagine how any one individual can make a difference in this regard but using widely available technology like this can have a big impact, not just on your wallet but crucially on the environment.
