Looking for an easy way to integrate a little alternative energy into your holiday festivities? There are a lot of exciting solar products coming out of Asia these days, as several eastern countries have gotten the jump on the US in terms of R&D and product development. Which isn’t so good for the US’ current energy market, but it is good for solar energy enthusiasts! Why don’t you try a string of solar powered Christmas lights in your front yard? They turn themselves on automatically at dusk (if you want them too), similar to existing solar lawn lamps, they have solid light or blinking options, and they can easily be strung around fences, eaves, railings and wreaths to create a cheerful effect that’s also effortlessly green.
I have a set of white fairy style lights of this type, and they are great. Not having a yard, I simply place the receiver in the window each morning and come sunset, I have a 60-LED solar powered flashlight for late night reading that lasts several hours! They throw a surprising amount of light for their tiny size. If you’re interested in these or any other solar power accessories such as solar powered flashlights for emergency or off-grid use, head to ebay today and search for solar lights. Finally, sunshine you can hold in your hand!
