Save Energy with Solar Lights

by Susan Littlefield


One way to help save energy is to use solar fixtures for outdoor lighting. But in the past, many solar fixtures gave off such dim light that they were not very effective in the landscape. Now from Gardener's Supply Company comes the Superbright Solar Spotlight. According to the company, these lights, which come on automatically at dusk, are brighter than any other solar landscape light on the market, giving off 18 times more light than competing models. The high-gain solar panel powers the light for 12 hours or more, the anodized aluminum housing is weather-tight, and high capacity batteries keep the lights shining even after a spell of cloudy weather. The Superbright Solar spotlight is available for $79.95; a dual spotlight model is available for $89.95.
