Large industrial lights can be used for parking lots, security on perimeters, along streets and roadways and even on some of the largest billboards. These lights use high powered fixtures and require a larger amount of solar power. Highly efficient and off grid allow these types of lights to be the best solution to an area where grid power doesn’t already exist and is costly to bring in.

Medium Solar Lighting Solutions

In the middle you have solar lights that produce light perfect for signs, decorative pathway, commercial landscape, flags, bus stops and building structures. These lights are typically use lower wattage fixtures as the amount of area being lit is much less. Their solar is also smaller in size to produce the needed power for the application. These systems are perfect for almost any type of application as they can be located anywhere without disturbing the surrounding area by needed trenching of wires.

The smallest lights are typically found in a home improvement store. These lights range from a single LED to about 5 Watts of light. Their solar panels are very small, will only operate the light for a couple hours a night and they do not provide much reliability. However, these are perfect for the typical home landscape lighting needs. Since atmosphere and boundary markings are typically all that is used at a residential location, these are the perfect type of solar lights as they are inexpensive and allow for installation anywhere around the yard.
