Solar Lighting for Emergencies

Isn’t it great to be able to take advantage of free energy from the sun? It can come in especially handy to use solar lighting for emergencies when the power’s out.

In the May/June 2013 issue of “Backwoods Home Magazine” (Issue #141), Jeffrey Yago gives guidance on using solar landscape lights for emergencies. It’s not complicated or difficult, but there are some things to keep in mind when you buy solar landscape lights. An excerpt of the article appears below.

 

Use solar landscape
lights for emergencies

By Jeffrey Yago, P.E., CEM

People own all kinds of household items that can be used to make life easier during an emergency, yet never realize their dual use. During a recent week-long power outage, I knew an older couple who were telling me how hard it had been for them in their all-electric house without power and no way to stay warm, cook, or wash. I knew they owned an RV camper that had battery-powered lights, battery-powered water pump, and a propane stove, furnace, and refrigerator, so I asked why they didn’t stay in their RV. They told me they had never thought of it!

While this may seem like an extreme example, there are all kinds of solar-powered landscape lights that can be used during power outages to illuminate your home, yet most people never think of it. We see solar landscape lighting everywhere these days, and many are priced cheaper than light bulbs.
