One of the most common ways to light your home at night in Asia is solar lighting. Amazingly China are leading the way in the battle against use of outdated lighting methods. They are mass producing solar lighting which are lasting for over ten years as well as costing the home absolutely nothing to run, now don’t call me a conspiracy theorist but why on Earth is a part of the planet this is so over populated coming up with brilliant ways to not necessarily save money but actually produce power that a centralised government simply is not capable of doing.

Now take a look at a developed country such as The UK or anywhere is Europe for that matter solar lighting is extremely expensive and very scarce. I’ll give you an example. This nice little light that produces ample visibility for your garden path is 1$ for one in China, now in the UK this very same item is £15 in most retail shops.

solar-lighting-projectLook I’m getting out of control here with my rants this was supposed to be about solar lighting and I am going off on a tangent. Here’s the bottom line. Solar lighting in China costs peanuts, please if you have a night light use it. They work in a simple but brilliant way. They have a small storage capacity which will allow the solar panel to absorb energy enough that the light can stay on all night whilst the next morning the power will be close to low and the charging process will begin all over again. By making sure the power charges up and down slowly everyday the battery will continue to hold power for ten years no problem at all. For the small cost of plastic the saving to the environment is massive. Just imagine if we all swapped over to this form of lighting. The savings in electric produced would be phenomenal as we ll as the jobs that are created by manufacture! Seriously guys solar power is affordable and we’ve got to start taking advantage of it.

If you think we will buy a normal light there really is no damage to the environment at all as it’s simply a case of swapping over the method in which we light our homes. Solar lighting is one way we are going to keep our homes relevant and up to date. Now you might be wondering if this truly is the future because Elon Musk has released unbelievable roofing technology for solar power however, for the average home it just is not viable yet and he is being hit by governments not willing to reduce tax on increase property value, as well as the cost of the install itself.
