Ten Everyday Devices Powered On Solar Energy!
When you think about it, many of the products that you use in and outside of your home can be powered with solar energy. And that’s the problem. We are so accustomed to traditional electricity that we fail to stop and consider alternate methods and sources.
Aside for adding solar panels to your roof, you can also use solar power to charge other devices around your home and garden such as security cameras, bird baths, lighting and many more items that we will discuss below. And why pay to use them when you can enjoy their use for free?
So ditch the expensive batteries and traditional electricity and power your outdoor gadgets and necessities with solar energy instead! Solar power is free, plentiful and great for the environment—allowing you to reduce both your electric bill, and carbon footprint.
SOLAR POWERED LED MOTION SENSOR LIGHTS
These super bright LED lights keep your property safe and well lit at night. They come in a set of 4 (screws included) and can be programmed to stay on all night, or to only turn on when detecting motion. When charged by solar energy throughout the day, these lights can last up to 9 hours at night. It’s a smart trade for traditional motion lights that drain your home of electricity.
SOLAR COOLING FAN FOR ATTIC & SHED
Cooling your house during summer months can really raise your electricity bill. By cooling your attic with a solar fan, you’ll essentially be cooling your entire house, and saving money in the process—this fan will basically pay for itself. Amtrak Solar’s Powerful 40-Watt Galvanized Steel Solar Attic Fan quietly cools your house, ventilates your house, garage or RV and protects against moisture.
SOLAR SONIC MOLE REPELLENTS
These solar-charged, underground critter repellents are an effective and humane way to keep your lawn from being repeatedly destroyed. They emit ultra-low frequency sonic pulses that penetrate the soil, every 30 seconds. The sound is extremely irritating to moles and other burrowing critters because they are virtually blind and thus extremely sensitive to sound and vibrations. The sonic pulses encourage underground varmints to vacate the property and also discourage return visits.
WIRELESS SOLAR PATHWAY LIGHTS
Light up your beautiful walkway with free energy! These stainless steel solar pathway lights are waterproof and easy to install. They add style to your landscape design. The solar panels absorb sun light during the daytime to convert sunlight into electricity to recharge the AA Ni-MH battery (included). The lights automatically turn on at night and turn off at dawn which preserves battery life.
SOLAR WIRELESS SECURITY CAMERA
Millions of American households have a security camera installed somewhere outside their home. And many require an electrical charge in order to do their job. The weatherproof YESKAMO Z6S requires only a short amount of sunlight, and works for a very lengthy amount of time. It’s one of the better solar cams on the market as well.
SOLAR BUG ZAPPER
Summer is approaching and so are the pesky bugs and mosquitos. Instead of using fuming citronella candles, give the weatherproof PIC solar bug zapper a try. It gives off zero air pollutants and requires no fuel replacements compared to standard oil-burning torches. This insect killer torch can replace up to (90) refills of torch fuel (projected consumption based on 4-months of an average evening of use). It’s a wonderful effective swap.
SOLAR POWER BIRDBATH PUMP
If you own a birdbath, or are considering getting a birdbath for your yard or garden, installing a solar pump is a smart way to recycle water. It can also be placed into a pool, pond or traditional birdbath. The Viajero solar fountain features a powerful 2.5W solar panel and long lasting 800mAh battery—working together they provide continuous power and ensure stability of the pump throughout the day when it’s sunny or cloudy out.
SOLAR PATIO TABLE LANTERN
A lantern is a great accent piece to any yard decor—especially for weddings or outdoor parties. This solar powered garden light charges during day and turns on automatically at night for up to 8 hours when full charged. Place it on your outdoor patio table or indoors!
SOLAR LIGHTED ADDRESS SIGN
Havig a solar powered address sign is a great way to make your address visible without incorporating traditional electricity. It’s also convenient for visitors, delivery drivers and emergency responders to find your home in a more timely manner.

SOLAR ULTRASONIC ANIMAL REPELLANT
A great and humane way to repel above-ground animals out of your yard and garden is to install a weatherproof, ultrasonic device. The WarmStares repellant is safe and eco-friendly. It works by emitting an intense ultrasonic signal to scare dogs, cats, wild boars, mice, birds and many other animals away from your zone, house, garden, and yard.
