Solar lighting for your outside landscape appears to be a great option for residential homeowners. For example, they’re somewhat inexpensive, there’s no digging or wires to install so that’s easy.
However, that just seems to be the only really cool thing about them. Solar landscape lights do not illuminate the same as LED or regular lighting. So when you’re talking about your outdoor lighting you will want to be able to see in very dark situations, you may want to reconsider solar lighting.
One of the other challenges is sometimes where you want to place a light there may not be enough sunlight to actually get the energy to the solar light. Each solar light would have to be in full direct sunlight for the entire duration of the day. What about the months when there is not a lot of sunlight and we have overcast or rainy days? You’ll still need outdoor lighting for your home. This is why solar lighting and the ability to be able to have enough energy to give you the proper lighting are somewhat iffy.
