American Flag Still Need Proper Lightings

By Albert Derrick

Recent technological innovations have paved the way to the rebirth of flagpole lightings through solar powered ones. The most obvious benefit of solar powered lights is that they do not require the main outlet to power them. Instead, the lights have small solar panels that use sunlight to charge a battery. Many solar lights store enough charge throughout the day to provide illumination for up to 10 hours, although this period varies based on weather conditions and the positioning of the solar panels.

Most of the solar panels automatically sense outdoor light through a light source. These can give off light on successive nights even when the sun's energy is not available for a couple of days. Many users are switching to solar lightings nowadays due to a number of reasons.

Solar lightings are independent of the utility grid resulting to lessened operation costs. These means that these are wireless lights and are not connected to your electricity provider. The lights are dependent of the heat energy given off by the sun, storing as much of it throughout the day. Solar lightings require lesser maintenance than conventional ones.

These have lower chances of overheating. Since solar wires do not have external wires, the risk of accidents is minimized. A lot of times, accidents happen to the personnel who fixes the lightings. These can include strangulation or electrocution. Solar powered lights are environment-friendly because its panels are solely dependent on the sun hence eliminating your carbon footprints contribution. Some parts of solar street lighting systems can be easily carried to remote areas making these more efficient and handy solutions to lighting problems.

On the other hand, if there are advantages, solar lightings also have a number of disadvantages. It also pays to make you aware of these few advantages just so you can compare it to conventional lighting systems. In the end, you just have to decide whether the advantages top the disadvantages or not.

Some disadvantages are the following. There is a barrage of cheap solar powered flagpole lightings being imported and sold, that do not comply with the flag statute. This is bad for a number of reasons. Imported stuff is cheaply made and more importantly, the designs, materials, colors, and methods do not compare well with the better quality, longer-lasting, and correctly designed flagpole lightings made by American manufacturers. The Flag Company Inc specialized in flags and flagpole lightings offered a special edition of solar powered flagpole lightings to provide innovative solutions for individual projects.
