I live in south Texas and the grids here are so old they can not provide the needed electricity when need is high. The weather here is salty and very hot and it is hard on lines. They need to be replaced often but are not. If it rains. ...if there is wind. ..if it is cold. ..you can count on the electricity going out. It goes out so often that I have bought a gas heater, gas stove and oil lamps. I have solar lights outside that can be brought in for light too. This works well in case of hurricanes too because then the electricity can go out for weeks until there is time enough to repair all the damage. Because of hurricanes here, many people have generators. I unfortunately cannot afford one. When there is a bad hurricane, I will be vacationing far to the north until utilities are repaired and a/cs are running. I have no idea how often it happens but this year I can remember only two or three times...but the weather has been dry and no big storms. Other years it can happen much more than that and sometimes it happens every other day because they change who uses what grids so no one is out for a very long time. Then it can be every so many hours or every so many days. I spent one Christmas with no electricity for five days and it was freezing. I felt bad for my neighbors that had small kids but we had snow on the ground so they were happy. That happens about once in a hundred years. I've rambled but hope it helps

2. 3 Best Solar Flood Lights You Need for 2021
Solar flood lights are one of the most invaluable investments you can make for the safety of your home. These lights are convenient and practical additions that will make everything from using a home security cam to unlocking your door at night a little bit easier. They can also help to keep the critters away from your prized tomatoes. A flood light is designed to flood an area with light. It's very straightforward. Flood lights are most important for outdoor applications. Inside, you have your walls, mirrors, and surfaces of your furniture to help bounce light around to fill the space. One bulb can take you a long way in a small room. Outside, you do not have that luxury. It's a vast expanse, and without a well defined space to contain a light, it sort of leaks out everywhere. A normal light outside wo not go very far. Since a flood light is designed to beam a high concentration of light directly out into a wide area, they will do a better job at illuminating a vast expanse. Flood lights are used to illuminate outdoor concerts and sporting events at night. These flood lights are a lot more powerful than the kind you would need to illuminate your home, since your back porch is substantially smaller than a football stadium. Flood lights for home use are compact, easy to use and install, and relatively inexpensive. Boundery's LumiGuard Pro is an ultra-bright 270 degree motion sensing floodlight. It's the perfect one size fits all solution for some security and safe illumination. It easily installs on your front porch or by your back door, giving you enough light to safely enter and exit without tripping over the doormat or trying every key on the ring. The LumiGuard Pro XL was designed with home security in mind. Our biggest and brightest floodlight can be used to illuminate very large areas, making it helpful for homeowners with a lot of property. It's designed to detect motion from up to 25 feet away, neutralizing threats the moment they approach. The Original LumiGuard is a compact and powerful solar floodlight that installs in minutes. It's the perfect replacement for battery powered LED flood lights, providing substantially more life without the hassle and waste of constantly replacing batteries. Why Do I Need a Flood Light? There are a lot of excellent reasons to add a few flood lights to the front and back of your house. You can position them wherever you need them to make your life a little easier at night. After work, you stop off to have dinner with a friend and run some errands. You make a last minute trip to the grocery store so you can meal prep some healthy meals for the upcoming week. Before you know it, you are getting home at 8 PM. The porch light is not on. You now have the troublesome task of figuring out how to get your groceries to the door that you cannot see to unlock. It's a huge pain, and you are kicking yourself for forgetting to leave a light on. A motion activated flood light solves that problem. As you approach the flood light, it will turn on. You can hold your groceries in one hand and unlock the door with the other because it's easy to see what you are doing. Need to run back out to the car to grab that 12 pack of seltzer? The light will kick back on. If you are having people over for a night time gathering, you probably have a well lit gazebo or porch area. But what happens when someone needs to walk to their car or around the house? They are probably unfamiliar with where they are going, and you do not want them to trip and fall. Solar flood lights and Boundery's Solar LED Stair Lights can make it safe for people wandering around in the dark. People with bad intentions do not want to be spotted. If anyone were casing your house to vandalize or burglarize it, they certainly do not want to do so with a bright spotlight shining directly at them. Mischievous teenagers are programmed to run the moment a light kicks on. It will give them the sense that someone saw them, or that someone could easily see them if they noticed the light kicked on and looked out the window. Strategically placing motion sensor lights near security cameras will help them capture clearer footage. If your camera's night vision leaves much to be desired, keep it in its normal mode and back it up with some solar flood lights. If you live in a quiet area or have a small patch of woods behind your home, you probably love the view. What you do not love is the curious deer and raccoons that want to see what kinds of plants are growing on your property. Rabbits are just as interested in finding snacks at dusk as they are at dawn. If you are growing fragrant herbs, fruits, or vegetables in your backyard, put up a solar light. Any curious animals looking to steal a bite will be scared off when the light kicks on. Motion sensor lights work by detecting infrared waves. People, animals, and cars emit heat. This heat energy can be seen by a motion detector light, especially when it's moving. The sensor picks up on the heat signature that passes before it and, in response, turns on the light. Motion sensing lights can sometimes be triggered by things like foliage aggressively blowing in the wind. If this is a dealbreaker for you, just trim the bushes. You can also adjust the placement of your lights to avoid pointing them directly at greenery. Why Are Solar Lights Better Than Electric Lights? Solar lights are better than electric lights for countless reasons. The most obvious reason is that they do not ever cost you anything to run. They use the light from the sun to charge an internal battery. When the sun goes down, solar flood lights know that it's dark and will automatically begin to work. You never have to remember to plug them in, turn them on, or recharge them. Since they do not require an active source of electricity, you can place them anywhere. You do not need to run wires or extension cords or create hazards to power your solar lights. Anyone can install them with simple instructions and basic tools. How Many Solar Flood Lights Do I Need? The amount of solar flood lights you need depends on what you are trying to achieve. You may only want two: one for the front door, and one for the back door. If you tend to take the trash out at night, it may help to strategically place one by the cans. If you are using them for home security, you will want them near every entrance and exit of your home. You might want to place them near your security cameras or, as a precaution, near any areas of your home that get particularly dark at night. If you entertain on your property, you might want to place them in a way that they will illuminate the way to the nearest entrance of your home. It's polite to help people find the bathroom during a bonfire or late night whiskey tasting. Solar flood lights can be affixed to your exterior walls with screws. They have a place for those screws to go in the form of a built-in mount. It's usually as simple as using the right drill with the right bit to prepare the wall and affixing the light. It is not much different from hanging a mirror or a picture frame. Your solar flood light will come with detailed instructions. Every home can do with a few solar powered LED flood lights. They are a one-time investment for a lifetime of convenience, safety, and peace of mind. It's liberating not to worry about turning the lights off and on when you need them, and it's even better when the light wo not add a single penny to your electric bill. Solar powered LED lights are ready to go right out of the box, and even the laziest DIYer can have them up and ready in time to eat a sandwich and take a nap. It's such a simple fix for a common problem that now you know how easy it is, we are not sure how you will want to go without it!
