There are literally tens of millions of street lights in the United States, which burn up billions of kilowatts of electricity each and every year. There are reports that suggest these street lights account for up to 50% of some states energy costs, and at a time when all areas of government are looking in to ways of reducing costs, maybe it’s the right time for us to be looking more closely at the benefits the outside solar light can bring to our budget deficits and the environment.
And it’s not just street lighting that can be replaced using outdoor solar lights, any outdoor space at your home, road signs, bus shelters, and parking lots can all be easily lit by outside solar lighting. This will not only help reduce energy costs, but will also help the many states that are now trying to meet ever stricter carbon emission targets.
In every area of our economy today we are looking for areas to increase energy efficiency as a way of saving costs and by way of meeting our energy reduction goals, and by encouraging and supporting any local efforts to introduce modern solar powered outside lights in our community’s, we will all be ‘doing our bit’.
By reducing our energy consumption across a wide range of activities, we can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels, and help increase the demand for more up to date renewable energy sources. Many states have plans in place to increase their reliance on renewable energy sources, and the outdoor solar light just might one solution to help us meet these goals.
