Not enough people understand the benefits of solar lights for property managers, and that’s why commercial solar lighting is often misunderstood.
Some people think that solar lighting is largely broken into two types:
- Solar lights for residential settings, and with lots more to choose from we wish we could say that all lights are great, but the fact is there more more junky “disposable” solar lighting than ever before.
- Expensive solutions for commercial properties, such as big-ticket solar street lights or complex systems where solar panels power a system of lights that involve a power lines similar to electrical systems.
Sure, those two types exist, but there’s a whole lot more, and one of these are stand-alone commercial solar lights. While we finish our detailed post, we hope you take a look at our latest YouTube video on Stand-Alone Commercial Lights. Then, hop over to SolarFlairLighting.com to check out some of the different types of commercial lights we offer. Continue reading

Don’t know about you, but I’ve had enough of Winter 2013/2014. To over a bit of winter blues, I planted some seeds and dahlia bulbs to get a jump on Spring.
I also took looked at the stored solar garden products and thought that maybe some videos of popular solar lights and garden products will remind you: Spring really is just around the corner!

February is American Heart Month. Go Red for Women’s Heart Health Awareness! Heart Disease is the Number One Killer of Women, surpassing all forms of cancer combined.
Many heart attacks and strokes are not only preventable, there is a good chance for great recoveries if treated if early so recognizing early symptoms is critical, and women’s symptoms are very different from those of men.
Many parts of the United States have had snow and ice storms over the past couple of months: including areas that don’t normally get hit with severe weather conditions.
Past posts have discussed how to care for solar lights during winter (including what to take in before the weather hits), and what to do (and not do) with solar lights covered with snow or ice hits.
If your solar lights or the solar panel of any solar powered product was covered with snow more than a few days, you may notice that your solar lights aren’t as bright or don’t stay on as long as normal once the snow melts. Luckily, there’s a really easy fix so that most solar lights or water features will well as ever!
We’ve discussed solar pest control in past blog posts and now have a video that show some of the different products available for specific types of nuisance animals from from crows to geese to moles and deer.

With so much of the US dealing with extreme cold, and both ice and/or snow storms, we thought we’d review some important Do’s and Don’ts for solar products, particularly solar lights.
You may not be able to use all lights for the duration of the current weather, but these tips will help you make sure that they work long after the weather settles down.
We originally did this post a few weeks back, but just found out that 60% of Americans are unaware that 40 and 60 watt bulbs will, like 75 and 100 or great incandescent bulbs become part of history once the New Year comes.
Also: we want to fix an “Oops” in our original post where we stated the ban was for 75 and 100 watt bulbs. (Like many of you we still have some in our closet since the funding to implement the 2012 ban on those bulbs was delayed and many were available long after January 1, 2012. Not this time: the funding is there and it will be enforced in a timely manner. This post summarizes the pros and cons of different bulbs most people will choose from. Continue reading
