Some people love lots of details in blog posts, but many others like the concise way videos show many ideas and images in a short period of time.
Whether or not you support or hate nuclear power, most nuclear plants in the US aren’t going anywhere any time soon. The purpose of this article is not to debate the pros and cons of nuclear power. The subject actually is a bit ironic: several nuclear power plants and major utility centers around the country are now or soon will use solar lighting for perimeter security, particularly as back-up when there are natural or intentional power outages. While information is publicly available (but difficult to find) as to which utility is doing what where, we are not publishing it in this article. We found out in a round-about way and did research to see how prominent using solar for perimeter lights actually is.
Silver, gold, red and green are traditional colors for the winter holidays. This year, why not Go Green with a solar gift? There are a lot of solar items to choose from these days, from the strictly practical to the purely fun. From solar toys to flashlights and battery chargers, you can put a smile on even the most “hard to shop for” people this year.
If people are less than happy with their first experience with outdoor solar lighting, I ask them two questions:
Are you using them properly?
What did you expect from the product you bought?
Often, what they bought was not meant to provide the type of illumination they wanted, so of course they were disappointed.
