Solar Energy Facts
The sun is a direct source of energy. Using renewable energy technologies, we can convert that solar energy into electricity.
All solar lights are “wireless”. They are not “hooked up” to external sources of power.
Solar lights produce no pollution and cause no harmful environmental effects.
Solar lighting is sometimes preferred for applications where the need is temporary (fairs, mining sites, Olympics, introduction of real estate developments, etc.).
Solar lights are immune to black outs.
Solar-powered outdoor lighting is virtually maintenance-free, since the batteries require no water or other regular service.
Solar lights provide enhanced security in poorly-lit remote areas where access to grid power is challenging, such as parks and large parking lots.
Solar lights work at night.
Solar lights work even after cloudy days. During daylight, even when overcast, the solar panels’ “solar generators” charge long-life batteries, which store the energy until needed, up to 5 days for Sol systems.
