Solar Lighting for Halloween

solarghosts.jpg

Save some energy this year as you get into the holidays. While all your neighbors are eating up kilowatt hours, you have Westinghouse's solar Pathway Lights costing you nothing. These weatherproof Halloween Ghosties come in a 3 piece set, soak up the sun all day, then automatically come on at dusk and light up your walkway all night while changing colors for a bit of extra charm.

While you are at it, add a string of orange Solar Lights to your walkway, railing, doorway or bush that you can probably keep up until there is nothing left to the turkey besides the wishbone. And while the waterproof Solar Pumpkin will not freak anyone out, he will certainly keep him/her from tripping over other things that go bump in the night.

Hiking Solar Gnome Leads the Way

What could be better than adding a Garden Gnome to your yard? How about one that also sports a solar mushroom lamp for weary travelers, stray pets or nosy neighbors. Standing 10" tall, the figure is made of painted resin. He will catch rays during the day and emit a soft yellow light at night.

Light Up Your Darkness With Solar LED

For all those dark places, the Smart Solar LED lights up keyholes, entrances and handles. Three interchangeable covers (white, brass or chrome,) are easy to mount with adhesive pads or screw holes. One button push gives a light that lasts 10 seconds then automatically switches off. A fully charged battery (powered by a low light level solar panel) can withstand ~720 operations.

Those who invest in the book "Gruen Produzieren" ("Green Production Technologies") will receive an added bonus, an OLED, powered by a solar cell. The book itself, edited by the German Engineering Association in cooperation with the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, is a sort of who's who of Germany's green leaders combined with projects going on at research centers.

Ripe Radish Glows and Grows

radishlamp.JPG

Radishes may not be our favorite vegetables, but we are thinking that the bunnies that frequent our backyard may mistake them for the real thing. Designed by Arthur Xin, the "Ripe Radish" collects energy by day and glows red during the night. It also doubles as a flowerpot so that you can grow the real thing.

DDA To Illuminate Downtown Detroit With Solar Power

harmonieclub.jpg

The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has been given a $100,000 grant from the DURP to install solar-powered lights to some of the older, mostly empty buildings in downtown Detroit like the old Harmonie Club. The lighting will be used on street-facing windows and exteriors in an effort to make them a bit more cheerful, but we bet they are also hoping that someone will come along, purchase them and make Detroit literally brighter again.
