Solar Energy Solar security lights work on solar energy that is derived from sunrays. The earth receives almost 70% of the sunlight, since 30% of it is reflected back in the space. The 70% of the light received by the earth's surface is not absorbed completely by the land; in fact, oceans, rivers, and clouds also absorb it. Solar energy is used for several other purposes, apart from lighting. It can be used for cooking , heating, treatment of water, thermal power, air conditioning, and much more. Solar energy has many more applications, such as architecture and urban planning, agriculture and horticulture, solar chemicals, solar vehicles. This energy is available in active and passive forms, and it is either converted into thermal or electrical power. Solar energy is not available in the night, so it needs to be stored. Solar lights will work on the stored energy. The total solar energy absorbed by Earth's atmosphere, oceans and land masses is approximately 3,850,000 exajoules (EJ) per year. This energy is available in different levels around the world. Places that are close to the equator receive more energy compared to those that are far from the equator. The following are some of the advantages or benefits of using solar security lights:
Advantages Economical - Solar lights can help you save a lot of money; they are very economical. You can save a lot on energy bills by installing these lights for home and outdoor purposes. They are the most pocket-friendly solution. Although the initial investment is slightly higher, these lights do not require any replacement or maintenance. There is no operational cost involved. Thus they help you save both money and environment.
Eco-Friendly - These lights will not produce heat or any other form of waste. This is because they are made from renewable energy. They are safe for the environment and even for children and pets at home.
Indeed solar lights are the best solution to all your lighting needs. Besides, they have a wide application and are useful for several other purposes. This energy is classified as active or passive depending on the way the energy is captured, stored, converted, and distributed. Typically, in case of lights, there are solar panels that absorb sunrays and illuminate the solar bulbs.
