Anyone who has ever enjoyed playing basketball during the day has wanted to play at night but not all basketball courts have lights. Why, well conventional lighting is expensive and uses lots of electricity during nighttime hours. Whoever the property owner is probably didn’t want to have a sky-high electric bill or in most cases, if the basketball court is owned by the city, the city did not want to pay for the ongoing electricity bill.
This is one instance where outdoor solar lighting is perfect. Simply perfect. Outdoor solar lights are a very unique product in that they contain solar cells that notice, store, and release light as the sun begins to set. Every solar garden light has built in semiconductors that absorb the sun’s light, which then interacts with other very intricate parts that create solar powered electricity. Each unit has a sensor that sends a signal to the solar cell when its time to begin releasing light or when it is time to slowly stop releasing light and begin storing it again. This perfected technology along with countless models to choose from have proven to be the most popular lighting product for residential & commercial basketball courts. This basically means that during the day light is being stored and as the sun begins to set, these lights begin to give off more and more free light.
Every single online provider of outdoor solar lighting has multiple options to choose from. This will ensure that no matter the size or set up of your court, they have packages that will fit your needs and budget perfectly. Online providers specialize in providing you with outdoor solar lighting at a low initial cost that will not cost you a dime nor raise your utility bill in the future, which is the whole purpose of solar energy. Of course there is a cost to have them installed but with the current state of the economy, just about every online provider has steeply discounted their costs.
These lighting packages for basketball courts do come ready to install or you can have them installed. Depending on the size of your court and how much lighting you will need will probably determine whether or not you install them on your own. The most important aspect of installing these solar lights is that they’re placed where they’re in direct sunlight during the day. This will ensure they get a full charge daily. There are full and half court packages to choose from. If and when you choose to install them on your own, the specialized kits eliminate “guesswork” during installation.
Just like basketball courts can be customized, so can these lighting packages. They come in a wide range of options like powder coat finishes, galvanized, tall short, custom colors with your favorite logos and more. As mentioned earlier most online providers are really giving some heavy discounts because of the current state of the economy but with that being said, these packages come priced including installation and set up but can save a good bit by installing them on your own. If you find yourself interested in solar lighting for a basketball court, don’t go to a retailer like Lowe’s or Home Depot, shop online because most online providers will give you an immediate discount before checking out.
