You want to use sunlight, as opposed to using electricity, to light up the areas of your outdoor spaces. Solar lights need no wiring and are very simple to install. A small solar panel will charge one or more batteries during the day and then sends power to an energy efficient bulb when the sun goes down. The solar lights that use Light Emitting Diodes or LEDs are much brighter than the old filament bulbs.
The energy volume produced by the solar cell determines how much will be available for the light. The cells that contain the better circuitry will provide more power to the batteries which will get passed to the bulb. The batteries contained in these lights will last much longer; there are some of these lights can stay lit for a number of nights after only one day in the sun. The solar cell cover transparency is important, the more light the panel receives the more energy it sends to the bulb.
