Decorative lighting and traditional Christmas lights in particular, use a fair amount of electricity. Solar lights are affordable and a much more ecologically friendly option that you can use to illuminate your Christmas tree and garden at no running costs.
Solar string lights are a great option for outdoor decorative lighting
Whether it is for holiday’s occasions or just to light up your house surroundings for a special event or party.
Solar strand lights are easy and safe to install and you won’t have to worry about running power lines from your home. This allows you to put lights in places you never would have been able to before.
Choosing the right location for the solar panel of your solar powered string light
Solar string lights work by collecting the energy of the sun to charge the rechargeable batteries during the day. It is important to be certain the solar panel gets enough light exposure during the day. Otherwise, the solar light batteries will not charge well and your light display will be dim or dark.
What makes possible the use of solar energy for outdoor Christmas lights is LED (Led Emitting Diodes) technology. These tiny bulbs consume a fraction of the energy used by regular electric light bulbs. LED’s are also very reliable and long-lasting. Usually, solar lights come with a photocell which automates the operation from dusk to dawn.
Solar string lights, decorative lighting at its best
Solar strand lights come in a variety of colors and styles, depending on the mood you’d like to create. White lights are available for subtle, yet dramatic, effects. Colored lights will let you control the mood, or create a festive atmosphere with multicolored blinking solar LED lights. The possibilities are limitless.
Light covers are available in a variety of designs and motifs, to add interest to your display.
Shapes like dragonflies, snowflakes, flowers, stars, snowmen, Halloween pumpkins, or any other are available to suit your particular taste and personality. They are not a big addition to the cost of solar lights when you consider all the joy they will add.
With a little ingenuity and some string lights you can create icicles, wreaths, stars, and more. They can also be used to brighten and decorate your deck, patio, or path. Solar rope lights offer another outdoor decorative lighting choice.
