Ultimate Solar Lighting Guide

We make it easy to understand solar lighting specifications

The solar outdoor lighting market is crowded with a wide range of choices that provide different light outputs, batteries, bulb options, and more—not to mention the fact that they all explain these specifications in different ways. We’ve created a free guide explaining how to understand and compare these specifications. If you are a lighting professional tasked with helping a client select a solar lighting option, this guide will walk you through the questions you can work through together to complete the project. For clients themselves, this guide is also a valuable tool for self-education.


What will you learn?

  • How a solar light works
  • 7 things to discuss with clients about their requirements before comparing manufacturers
  • The importance of location, solar panel sizing, batteries, and LED fixtures in evaluating manufacturers
  • Which costs you should focus on when making a final decision

This helpful resource also contains case studies, example calculations, and diagrams to help guide you through the process.
