Think about Christmas and the first thing that comes to mind is a colorful atmosphere filled with fun and joy. You get the feeling of the festive season as soon as the store begin to decorate their windows and interiors with red and white Santa colors, Christmas trees and not to forget, the lighting. The long strands of lights add color and sparkle, especially during the nights.
Now step aside and think about it in today’s environment. How much electricity is being wasted in the process and how much of our natural resources are getting depleted. On the other hand, whats Christmas without lights? So the option is not to use the decorative lighting or then to think of alternatives. The first one is not really an option, is it? But the second one seems possible, especially if you care about the environment.
The quick alternative is to opt for solar outdoor lights. If you have already installed them, then you can simply redirect the battery to power your LED light strings. Since this is solar power, you don’t really have to think about wastage at this point – the sun will simply help you regenerate it. It’s a direct saving on your electricity bills as well.
Most types of lights work well with the batteries from your outdoor solar lights. Things like the string of lights with 24, 50, or 104 LED bulbs are already accepted as ready for use as outdoor solar lights. Use these on the Pine trees in the yard or on your compound walls and you are done with Christmas lighting that saves your bills and also shows your concern about the environment.
Now, can you find an alternative for your indoors? Well, be creative and you will find ways to take the idea indoors as well. There’s still time for Christmas so think about it now so you can plan well. Have a happy and safe Christmas with solar outdoor lights.
