Now that the lockdown is finally showing signs of easing, we are all desperate to be as outdoors as possible. and now that small al fresco soirées are allowed, it will be a summer full of garden parties.
Solar lighting is a popular choice for outdoor lighting. No electricity means no electricity bill. You save money and don’t waste electricity when it’s not needed.
Solar panels charge up during the day and use this energy until it gets darker. In the months with less sun they are charged a little less and then run less long in the evening.
There are affordable options for Wayfair and B&Q. We also recommend local hardware stores for deals and discounts.
We found ten of the best options for any outdoor space to consider right now.
