Understanding Solar Power
How does solar power work?
Solar powered panels convert the sun's rays into electricity by exciting electrons in silicon cells using the photons of light from the sun. This electricity can then be used to supply renewable energy to your Touch Of ECO lights. During the day the solar powered lights convert sunlight into electricity recharging the included batteries. Using this stored energy, the LED lights turn on automatically at night. Neat right?
Where should I place the solar panel?
For optimal solar performance before installation be sure to...
Observe area of your home that receives the most direct sunlight
Turn on solar unit and install with solar panel facing the sun
Let the unit charge for 24 hours for optimal light performance
