Ever Heard of Solar Christmas Lights?
This year Solar Christmas Lights are going to spread the message through out the world that festivals do contribute to making this world go green. During the festive season Solar Christmas Lights with LEDs are expected to raise the awareness of people about green and clean energy. Solar Christmas Lights with LEDs will also increase the focus on Solar power and hopefully technologies that are involved in harnessing the abundant Solar energy will get a boost.
What are LEDs ?
Solar Christmas Lights are made of LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) that consume much less energy than your traditional tungsten filament or CFL light. They are more efficient compared to the traditional lights that need color filters.
How do they work?
A light sensor when triggered by sun light, activates the solar cells on a controller board, which in turn charge a battery. The energy charged battery powers the Solar Christmas Light LEDs. A bright Sun produces about 1000 watts of energy for each square meter of the earth. Solar Christmas lights burn brightly for almost up to fifteen hours after a full charge.
Solar Christmas Lights with LEDs are energy efficient lights with distinctive look. They are cost efficient and last longer. Solar Christmas Lights with LEDs do not burn out but fade out over a period of time. Besides a single bulb fading out in a string does not affect the other LEDs. The energy savings made compared to the traditional lights is quite substantial.
Solar Christmas Lights with LEDs work for almost ten years. This is almost twice the time of the incandescent bulb.
Solar Christmas Lights with LEDs are safer too. Since they do not generate much heat they are safer to hang on the Christmas trees. Solar Christmas Lights with LEDs come in durable and sturdy plastic cases and do not break easily. Hence they are comparatively safer and are less risky especially when children and pets are around.
