But do you know how to choose the correct solar powered light for your area? Aside from color or design style, of which your choices are numerous, you should realize that certain lights work better in certain areas of the country that you live in. If, for example, you live in a area that receives plenty of sunlight during the year you can buy just about any driveway light you wish because even if you buy an inexpensive one that isn’t that efficient, it will still work. On the other hand, if you live in an area that is primarily more cloudy than sunny you will need to buy a better light that is more efficient and can hold a charge much longer from the few days it is sunny.

One of the ways to find out how much light is in your area year round is to look up a sun light map online and it will tell you how much, on average, your area receives for each day of the year. After you find this out you should start comparing solar driveway lights to see which is best for your home.

In the case of solar lighting manufacturers, you should stick with major brands who have been around for a long time in the solar field. Not only do they have good return policies (if the light doesn’t work out the way you thought it would) but their lights are made of strong metal, not plastic. And keep in mind, if you live in a cloudy area you’re going to need to buy more expensive lights because they typically have better batteries and better solar panels so they work better.
