Why Should I Go Solar?

 Investing in solar Christmas lights can eliminate one of the highest ticket items on your holiday decorating list– electricity for your display.  In place of the power draining strings that can use up to 100 watts a piece, solar Christmas lights work 100% by using the no-cost energy of the sun.  These power-saving light sets work in exactly the same way as the solar lights commonly used in landscape lighting. 

A solar Christmas light set consists of a string of lights attached to a controller board.  The board is made up of a battery, solar cells and a light sensor.  The light sensor gathers the light, activating the solar cells (photovoltaic cells) convert the sunlight into electricity.  The produced electricity is then used to charge the battery that powers the Christmas lights.  On a bright, sunny day, the cells can take in enough sunlight to totally recharge the battery that powers the outdoor string lights.  Should the wintry days be cloudy, the cells will still recharge but may not totally recharge the battery.  If this is the case, the lights will not stay lit as long as they would if totally recharged. 

Solar Christmas light sets use the industry’s new darling, LED lights. These LED (light emitting diode) bulbs asolar coverre more efficient to operate than traditional electric Christmas lights, making them the ideal choice for use with sunlight-dependent solar cells.  You’ll find solar Christmas lights to be particularly bright and clear and available in a variety of bulb colors and string lengths. In addition some manufacturers are offering inflatable solar light covers that drape over your lights and create images like this snowman available from Amazon.com

 

 

 

Use a Live Tree Inside and Plant it Outdoors Later

Christmas Tree Lights… Outdoor Extravaganza

 

Outdoor Christmas Trees–A Little History

As early as 1912, North America began to see the use of Christmas tree lights outdoor.  One of the first places where lights were used on trees was in Boston’s public areas.  Soon thereafter many other communities followed suit until today where it is rumored there are as many outdoor Christmas trees as there are indoor ones.

 The Living Outdoor Christmas Tree 

If you want to join the outdoor Christmas tree crowd, consider planting an actual permanent tree in front of your home.  A permanent live tree adds color, life and even oxygen to your yard and its surroundings all year long.  At Christmastime you can then do some outdoor Christmas tree lighting of your own.

Yet another way to be “green” and eventually add a tree to your yard is to purchase a live Christmas tree–roots and all.  These trees are dug up in their entirety and placed in a container.  You simply leave the tree in the dirt for Christmas and when the holiday is over you plant it in a pre-dug hole in your yard.  After a few years of doing this you can reforest much of your yard, while never killing or wasting a good tree.                                                                                                                

Landscape Lighting and a Perfect Tree 

During the winter months many of us are looking for ways to brighten our yards.  Landscape lighting and plantings that maintain their color during the winter are two common ways to accomplish this goal.  So adding a tree to the yard makes sense in more ways than one.  When the holidays come along you have the additional opportunity to step up the color when you add outdoor Xmas light to your trees and yard.

Whatever you choose, adding a tree to the yard is an investment in the future.  Light it now or light it later.  Or better yet plant it after using it indoors. 

 Happy holidays from us—- at the site for Outdoor Christmas Lighting Ideas!

LED Christmas Lights–Make Holiday Decorating Greener

Why LED Christmas Bulbs are Greener

LED xmas lights make holiday decorating greener 1Common sense tells us that outdoor holiday lights are the farthest thing from green.  But, if you insist on lighting your home, consider LED Christmas lights for energy conservation and cost savings.

Based on the semiconductor diode, LEDs (light emitting diodes) release light when the electrons combine with holes.  Although LEDs originally emitted only red light, today’s LEDs produce light across the visible, ultraviolet and infra red wavelengths.  This allows interior as well as exterior LED Christmas lights to be produced in a rainbow of colors.

The Benefits of LED

LED Christmas Lights–Not only Greener
