Installing exterior home lighting on residential property can add ambiance, illumination, and safety to the home. In fact, installing pathway lighting can help prevent accidental falls from occurring. One type of pathway light is solar pathway lighting. This type of lighting system uses the sun as its power source to provide the illumination. Below, brief information about solar pathway light is presented.

Solar pathway light is ecologically friendly, given that it uses the sun to illuminate pathways. This type of pathway lighting does not use electricity. Solar pathway lights are designed to work by harnessing the sun’s energy during daytime, and emitting it after the sun goes down. As the name indicates, the lights work by using the sun; therefore, the solar panel component of the lighting must be placed in the direct sun, so that they can function as designed. Whether the solar lights are designed using one solar panel or several solar panels, the solar panel(s) must receive abundant direct sunlight to function as the manufacturer intended. Some solar pathway lighting is designed to provide 8-10 hours of illumination, while others are designed to provide 10-12 hours of illumination. The solar panel(s) cannot be blocked from the sun by any object, so that they can harness the sun’s energy during the day. With current solar pathway light technology, these lights tend to work well in sunny climates, and not well in climates that are not sunny. Moreover, consumers will also want to be aware that like most products, quality varies, depending on the quality of the components of the lights. Nonetheless, solar pathway lights tend to be easy to install, given that they do not use electricity. They also tend to be easy to maintain. The maintenance for solar pathway lights usually requires changing batteries when needed, and keeping the solar panels relatively clean.
