Solar light panel

Solar energy is the cleanest and inexhaustible of all known energy sources. Solar energy is nothing but the light, heat and other radiation that is emitted from the sun. Solar radiation holds huge amounts of energy and is responsible for almost all the natural processes on earth.

Solar Light panels are completely free standing. Simply fit the light components collectively, press the spike into the ground or screw on to the wall mounting, it really is that simple! Power is provided by solar panels, located tactfully on the head of the lights.

During the day the lights charge up with free solar energy via the solar panels collecting power from both sunlight and daylight. The energy is stored in long-life NiCad batteries (supplied) integrated into the lamp body. Often, these lights are designed to turn on automatically at end of the day, providing an enhancing effect through-out the night, and then charge up again during the day. All weather design ensures that Solar Lights are not affected by unfavorable weather conditions ensuring years of pleasure.

Science behind the working of Solar Light Panels:

The system operates just like a bank account. Withdrawals from the battery to power the light, source must be compensated for by adequate deposits of energy from the solar panels. Provided that the system is designed so deposits exceed withdrawals on an average daily basis, the battery remains charged and light source is consistently powered.

Features of our Solar Light Panels:

1.Automatic sunset sensors operate light at evening.
2.Strong design ideal for year round outdoor use.
3.Solid state Light Emitting Diodes give 20,000 hrs life.
4.These are the very economical lighting system.
5.Sun is a direct source of energy for the solar panel.
6.The battery is recharged during the day by direct-current (DC) electricity produced by the solar panel.
7.The light source is powered by the battery each night.
8.The electronic controls are used between the battery, light source and solar panels to protect the battery from overcharge discharge, and to control the timing and operation of the light.

Why to opt Solar Lights:

•Solar Lights are the very economical. As the cost of energy is always on the rise, every person is looking for more affordable options. Solar light panels are not only affordable but can be operated from natural sunlight, which is available for free for you. The natural sunlight provides the power for solar lights to work. They do not require electricity or gas. As this power is generated without using any external energy source, your energy bills will be much lower. Solar lights are the most reasonably priced type of outdoor lighting that you can find anywhere.

•No trenching, no metering, no wiring.

•A most important consideration is that these lights will not use up other energy resources. As electrical power and gas power are not needed, using solar light means that you are going green and you are doing your part to make sure that these resources are not depleted.

•These lights will get just the right amount of power to make them completely effective. These lights are not overly bright or very dim light that is essentially useless, but are completely effective.

•Solar light panels are easy to install. You will not require to waste money hiring a professional to do it. You can have your lights suitably installed and in great working condition in no time at all.

•Solar lights also look great. There are several different styles available that it will be effortless to find the style best suited to your needs. Whether you are looking for something modest, stylish, to blend in with the natural environment or to give a bold contrast, there is one accessible for you.

•Solar light panels are both attractive and practical. These lights make your yard, streets, driveway, and walkway lit with just the right amount of lighting.

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons why you should consider adding solar yard lights to your home. They are the best choice for outdoor lighting available today. Let’s try to get out of this ferocious treadmill of paying hard earned money to the companies for their electricity. Make use of solar light panels and reduce your bill…….

Facts:

1.NASA estimated that the Sun gives or irradiates the earth 174 Petawatts (Pw) of solar energy every day. Out of this roughly 30% of energy is reflected back to space, and another major share is absorbed by our atmosphere. Even if we get only 10% of this energy which is about 17.4 Pw per day, it is still more than the whole daily energy requirement worldwide. [#1]
2.Solar light panels help in deterring crime and by using these lights, you can augment the visibility of your place thus augmenting the safety of people who walks along the pathway while taking the benefit of reduced electric bills.[#4]
3.Do you know out of total solar radiation that falls on our solar panel how much energy does our Solar cell absorb? Sorry to say that our simple solar panel can absorb only about 14 % or less.
4.Solar energy is sustainable, clean and green energy.
5.The batteries incorporated on Solar Lights panels are recharged during the day. The battery used is so efficient that it can hold power all through the whole night which is usually for 12 hours.[#4]
6.Solar energy with the help of developing technologies play an important role in reducing greenhouse gasses and helps in stimulating the economy.
7.Solar Energy is measured in kilowatt-hour. 1 kilowatt = 1000 watts.
8.1-kilowatt home solar system consists of about 10-12 solar panels and requires about 100 square feet of installation area. [#2]
9.Solar thermal technology can also create electricity by creating steam to power generators.
10.In 1990, a solar powered airplane flew across the U.S.[#2]

11.The “solar panel” accounts for between 40-50% of the total cost of an installed solar energy system. [#2]

12.During the 15th century, Leonardo da Vinci already had plans for solar concentrators in his notebooks.
13.In just one hour, the earth receives more energy from the sun than the entire world uses during a whole year.[#3]

14.Solar energy can produce lighting for indoor or outdoor use. It can be used to heat swimming pools, power cars, and small appliances. You can even cook food with solar energy.
15.According to a global price survey, solar energy prices have declined an average of 4% per year for the past 10 to 15 years.
16.A 1-kilowatt home solar system will prevent approximately 170 lbs. of coal from being burned, 300 lbs of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere and 105 gallons of water from being consumed each month! [#2]
