Power Outage Idea

I have a friend who used her Solar Lights inside the house at night when the electric power went off during a hurricane. She stuck them in jars and bottles and said they gave off plenty of 'free light' in each room. She put them outside in the daytime and brought them back inside at night for several days while the power was off. They are safer than candles and cheaper than batteries.
Thanks Grace 


  1. What ARE these solar lights? How do you get them, what do they look like, and are they expensive? Sounds like a neat idea.

  2. Dear Lanny, some buildings already have small solar lights around walkways and garden, like Hampton Bay Outdoor Solar LED Walk Lights from Home Depot or Lowes. Google it! The very cheap ones ($2) may not stay lit long enuf.

  3. WE did this for "Wilma" The Ass'n had purchased a set of eight for our Patio. We drew lots and the winners (4) each got 2 solar lites. These give about 6 hours of light Set of 8 at that time at BJ's $40.
