03MAKE THE MOST OF DAYLIGHT
It sounds simple, but it's true nonetheless. If you take advantage of natural light during daylight hours, you don't need to have many lights on. Of course, this becomes more of a challenge in winter as the days get shorter and we get less and less daylight. Here, however, you can minimize the use of your lights and only use the absolutely necessary lighting in the few places where you need to focus, such as at the kitchen island when you're cooking or at the desk or dining table when you're working or helping with homework. Leave all other unnecessary light sources switched off and use only the most necessary lights in the most important places.
Another great way to make the most of daylight is with solar lights! With solar lights, you can use the Earth's natural resources and charge the solar cell using sunlight via the small battery in the top. When you turn the light on in the evening, it uses all the energy that has been charged in the battery during the day, so you don't need to use electricity for this light. Solar lights are therefore an extremely environmentally friendly, energy-saving and, most importantly, economical solution that doesn't show up on your electricity bill.
Solar cells are also extremely smart for outdoor lighting, as the vast majority of them turn themselves on when they sense that they are not being charged by the sun. That way, you don't have to worry about timers or manual switching on when it gets dark. See our full range of solar lights here
