Did you know you don’t have to limit your use of solar lighting to the outdoors? You can use indoor solar lighting, as well! While many may not have considered using solar power to provide indoor lighting, it is becoming a growing trend to save money on the electric bill. Some building may also be far away from the main dwelling, making it expensive to provide electricity for even a single bulb, and indoor solar lighting can solve the problem quickly and brighten your space, too!
Wondering how indoor solar lighting would work? It’s simple really, you can just place the indoor solar lighting next to a window through which light shines during the day to all the solar cells built into the lamp or lamp base to gather energy to charge an internal battery.
Most indoor solar lighting use a 12-volt bulb and will operate directly off the battery at night providing lighting at no cost, except the initial investment which, in most cases is not that much higher than a traditional lamp.
If you need to brighten remote buildings, that is not an issue. Indoor solar lighting can be used without the need to run electrical wiring to the building the solar cell can be placed on the roof ad wired into the lamp for use any time of the day or night. Of course, this works even if the remote building does not have any windows! Makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?
Regulator Keeps Lamps Ready To Use
If you want to invest a little bit more in your indoor solar lighting you might want to look at an indoor solar lighting regulator. The regulator helps to prevent the battery from being overcharged. When the battery reaches full power, the unit will break the connection to the charger without having to turn on the light.
At night when the light is needed, the battery will be charged or, if used during the day while the light is burning, the battery can remain charged for when you want to use the light at a later time.
With the use of indoor solar lighting homes can be easily illuminate when away on vacation without increasing the electric bill, or if the power goes out lights will be available to keep the house illuminated.
Indoor solar lighting is a great option if you live in an area where power outages are common, in a storm prone area, or even in an area that is hit by hurricanes! Imagine being able to have light even if you don’t have any electricity! Solar indoor lighting is a great option!
