With each passing day solar lighting is becoming very popular among people. The most important reason behind this is that it is a renewable source of energy that is free to use. It is both cost and environment friendly. They involve a one time investment i.e. once one has bought the solar set; the operational costs are completely zero. They are very easy to use and run completely on freely available energy source of the sun. Solar outdoor lighting can be very effective in lighting up streets and neighborhoods.
Though the initial cost of these might be more than normal lights and bulbs, in the long run solar lamps are more cost effective to use. Solar lights also need very little maintenance and some can even switch off and switch on automatically. They are safer than normal lights since they do not use electricity and thus do not need any wires around them.
