Solar energy is finally starting to get the recognition it deserves. As the most abundant energy resource on earth, it continuously strikes the Earth with 173,000 terawatts of solar energy.
As the American public is becoming increasingly aware of its benefits, sales are increasing. In fact, developers installed 85% more solar panels compared to the first quarter of last year. For those thinking of using solar towers as a way to light their outdoor space, consider these benefits of solar lighting.
No outlet necessary This is probably the most obvious benefit of them all. Solar light towers do not require any plug-in power sources. This is because the lights have small solar panels that use sunlight to charge a battery.
They have the ability to store enough charge to last up to 10 hours. The length of time in which they can last is dependent on the weather conditions and the positioning of the towers.
Cost effective Portable light towers are typically more affordable than most electric garden lights. They are also user-friendly, saving homeowners money because they do not have to pay to have them installed. Considering the fact that they run on solar power, homeowners can have peace of mind knowing they will not be adding to their monthly energy bills.
Environmentally friendly For homeowners wanting to reduce their carbon footprint, solar towers are the perfect way to do so. During the day, the towers absorb the sunlight, then run off that stored energy at night. This means that homeowners can enjoy their yards into the night without using any more energy than they need to.
Safe Without electrical cables, solar towers are safer than electrical garden lights. For this reason, they are a good choice for portable lighting at barbecues, cookouts, and other outdoor gatherings. There is no risk of children or guests tripping over exposed cords and they are much safer than candles and lanterns.
Apart from commonly used incandescent bulbs that release 90% of their energy as heat, solar lighting uses far less energy at no additional cost to the consumer. They do not require outlets, and they are more affordable than electric garden lights, environmentally friendlier, and safer for guests. With so many benefits to choose from, why else would you choose any other way to enjoy your outdoor space this summer? Choose solar tower lighting and make a difference.
