Solar lights provide security and illumination in needed areas. A lot of the time those areas area located some place power is not available. Solar lights are a great alternative and a cost effective solution. They range from small one LED fixtures that run along a home’s driveway to powerful street and flood lights that can illuminate a 150’ area.

Solar lighting is great for many different reasons. It is a green alternative to traditional lighting, it is low cost and practically maintenance free, and there is no power bills associated with utilizing solar. There is no reason to extend the power grid or use underground wiring. Solar is also low voltage which makes it much safer for installation and maintenance.
