Solar Lights: A great back-up plan in case of power outage
What a neat idea!
Isn't this one great idea !!
I have a friend who used her Solar Lights inside the house at night when
the electric power went off during a hurricane. She stuck them in jars and
bottles and said they gave off plenty of 'free light' in each room. She put
them outside in the daytime and brought them back inside at night for
several days while the power was off. They are safe to use and cheaper than
batteries. She recommended we bring a Solar Light into our own house one
night to test it for ourselves.
Due to a thunderstorm, we lost power for about 5 hours one night. We were
scrambling around in the darkness, looking for matches, candles, and
flashlights. Then we looked outside and noticed our Solar Lights shining
brightly all around the patio, stairs & dock. My wife walked outside and
brought several of the solar lights inside. We stuck the Solar Light pipes
into plastic drink bottles and they made the nicest, brightest, safest,
lighting you could imagine. We put one in the bathroom, one in the kitchen
and in the living room.
There many types of Solar Lights available. We bought quite a few and put
them all around our yard. They look nice and do not attract flying bugs
like the outdoor lights around our doorway. The lights we have fit into
20-oz. water bottles and also fit into most larger 2 liter bottles. If you
need a weight in the plastic bottle to keep them from tipping over, put in
a few of the colorful flat marbles they put in aquariums and vases. You can
also use sand, aquarium gravel, or whatever you have available.
The Solar Lights we have are perfect inside our home. They burn all night
when needed and next day we take them back outside where they recharge and
are ready for use again when needed. Solar Lights are the perfect light
solution for power outages. I had never thought of it before seeing what my
friend did, and now you know about this idea too.
The idea that you can help the middle class families save money and build a better future. After suffering my own hardships, and turned to credit counselors, that tired to charge me more then I was paying on my credit cards currently. This forced me to think of a better solution, So, I developed a saving system that can save the average family hundreds per month! And the best part, the basic program is 100% Free!!!
