Hello everyone and welcome back to the solar review. Previously I talked about how this website would be used to review a number of different solar powered products. I originally thought I’d format this in such a way where I’d review one different product for each post. But today, I wanted to do things differently, and as this is our first proper article, I thought it’d be quite fun to talk about a number of different solar powered products rather than just one.
In fact, my discussion won’t focus on products per se, but ways that solar power can be used, which is then manifested in products. This will help us when referencing future reviews.
There is a huge number of things that solar power can be used for, and probably quite a bit more than you’d expect.
The first and obvious one that comes to mind is that the power of solar is harvested to use for electrical energy, and lighting your house for instance. This is definitely still the most traditional way in which the power is harnessed.
What some don’t know is that it can also be used to power individual lights too. These can obviously be used in a number of ways. For example, you can purchase individual lights that you stick into the ground, say next to a pathway in your garden. They have a strip or panel across the top of the light which absorbs the solar energy and powers the light when it gets dark.
If you’re feeling creative, then these individual lights can also be used in many different ways. I remember reading something on the internet once about how someone had used these lights and had created an outdoor chandelier for their garden. It was pretty ingenious. Personally, I prefer the best custom and bespoke chandeliers available, but if you need one for your garden then this is a great option!
Anyway, back to our main topic. If you don’t know too much about it, then it’s worth learning more. But, in short, energy from the sun can be used in so many different ways its very easy to lose count. From radios to keyboards, anything that is usually powered with electricity can be powered by solar energy.
