Solar-powered lights are a great option for any business. These lights provide easy-to-maintain energy-efficient lighting, and you can use panels to illuminate indoor and outdoor lighting. However, depending on the layout of your building, some of your fixtures may not get enough sunlight. Here are some helpful tips to ensure your solar lights get a good amount of sun and remain working once the sun goes down.
Clearing Potential Blockage
Branches, leaves, and other hazards often obstruct sunlight from your solar panels. It’s a good idea to trim leaves and branches in a way that allows direct sunlight to reach your panels and remove any fallen leaves or debris from the surface of the solar panels.
One tip to ensure your solar lights get a good amount of sun is to use mirrors to reflect and position the sunlight onto certain areas. This is a great solution if your building has wall-mounted solar lights that don’t receive enough sunlight throughout the day. Reflected light helps power fixtures, but you may need a larger mirror depending on the size of the panel.
Charging Lights With LED Lights
If you have certain fixtures or areas that don’t get enough sunlight, one option is using other lights to charge them. LED lights emit spectrums with enough similarities to solar energy. Panels charging with LED lights may require lengthier exposure than they would to direct sunlight, but it’s possible to direct the LED lights in a way to keep things running at night.
