Solar lamps


Solar lamps allow you to create the same lighting as a traditional system, but offer many more benefits. It is important to know the system that garden lighting uses to make the lamps work. Whatever the type of lighting chosen, solar energy is able to satisfy any need by means of a small solar cell that conveys the rays of the sun and uses this energy to make the element light up. Let us now begin a more detailed analysis of the different garden lighting systems that use solar energy.

Solar lights

Solar lamps should be placed inside the ground and everyone can choose the most suitable height. The structure is very simple, they are formed by a base and a small solar panel on the end. They do not require any particular care, they light up when they are charged and the intensity of the light gradually decreases as the charge of accumulated solar energy decreases. Some models also have infrared sensors that increase the luminous intensity of the lamp when approaching. The solar panel has a metal body and a glass cover that protects it from shocks but also from the weather. Moreover, they are a fairly durable product.

No maintenance costs and respect for the environment

For this kind of solar lighting, and for all the other models, it is good to point out that the only cost to be faced is the expense concerning the purchase since there are no maintenance costs. Unlike the traditional plant, which involves the purchase of the light bulb and also the cost of electricity, when choosing solar energy you don't have to face any expense. This is an important economic advantage, especially for those who have a very large garden that they need to light, and this certainly also allows them to place more light points. The energy of the sun not only has no cost, but is also renewable and clean. Renewable means inexhaustible and non-polluting, thus combining respect for the environment with economic advantage. Solar garden lights are also wall-mounted. In this case the light is projected downwards, unlike the spotlights, where the light is instead emanated upwards. They are basically used for two different garden spaces.

The spotlight and the lamppost

The spotlight is able to properly illuminate the passage in that area. The solar panel is located in the upper part, and if it is a sloping bollard, the few rays the sun gives off during the winter are also optimized. The solar-powered solar spotlight can be with or without a motion detector. It is always applied to a support or can be fixed directly to the wall. The lamppost with solar panel on the wall has a slanted panel and also an internal battery. Usually a series is used to adequately illuminate a passage. Some small solar lamps have suction cups and can be placed anywhere.

Solar-powered lighting during the winter

The main problem that arises is how efficient solar lighting systems can be during the winter. In reality the results are quite satisfactory because, depending on the different inclination of the panel, it is possible to capture the few rays of the sun even during freezing days. The system that uses solar energy for outdoor lighting is a novelty that arouses the curiosity of many, who when they discover the many advantages fail to resist the temptation to buy a solar-powered lamp. There are still skeptical people, but to be convinced, it is enough that they have the opportunity to experiment personally.

Solar lamps: The costs

As for the costs, they vary depending on the model chosen but tend to be in line with those relating to the traditional outdoor lighting market. The choice of using solar energy is a conscious and very important choice that allows you to respect the environment and thus begin to spread even a very important concept: it is fundamental not to pollute. Outdoor lamps are one of the innovations in the sector, they have different shapes, some are very simple, others have particular dimensions and, using the sun's energy, generate brightness. It is interesting to experiment in this sector also new possibilities that allow to arrive at the search for different materials. There is no law that requires the purchase of solar lighting systems, but it is a personal choice and those who care about the health of the environment certainly cannot do otherwise. Raising awareness and directing the customer towards the purchase of a solar system is important because it allows the dissemination of this new culture that values ​​renewable sources, and in this case, the great resources that the sun can offer us, at no cost.
