Solar Security Lighting Wanted Year-Round

A quick quiz for all those savvy sustainability sorts:  What is the best time of year for solar security lights?  Is it in the winter months, when long hours of darkness make security lighting necessary?  Or is it the summer months, when pleasant temperatures make roaming the neighborhood more enjoyable for opportunistic thieves?

The correct answer is that solar security lighting is in heavy demand year-round.  Seasonal changes don’t shift security concerns for homeowners, making shed lights, perimeter lighting, and solar post lights perennial favorites.  With public opinion polls showing that people are a bit pessimistic about the future, buying solar security lights provides a way for individuals to boost their personal safety levels through adequate lighting for their properties.

Businesses also have a strong interest in solar security lighting at all times of the year. They are motivated by practical as well as environmental concerns.  Though moving toward renewable lighting is smart, solar powered security lights are also strategic moves for business preservation.

World-wide, crimes of opportunity are on the rise, pushed up by economic struggles, according to Germany’s Deustche-Weille and the BBC.  Police are cautioning business owners to take additional measures to reduce the attractiveness of their offices and storefronts to would-be thieves.  Spaces illuminated with accent solars can be an effective and low cost way for business owners to remove the opportunity for unobserved lock picking and break-ins, encouraging thieves to go elsewhere.

Traditional electric security lighting for homes and businesses can be tampered with or have the wires cut.  With no attachment to the central electric grid and no trailing wires, security systems run on solar power have an added layer of safety.

As long as there is the opportunity for crime, there is the opportunity for safety through solar lighting.  It’s no small wonder, then, that demand for solar powered security lights remains strong all year long!
