A research team at the University of Notre Dame has developed a solar “paint” that is cheap to mass-produce and would look just like regular house paint when applied to the exterior of a home. While the team is still working on making the paint significantly more efficient, the idea is an exciting leap forward for everyone who want to use solar power but doesn’t want to bolt those unsightly panels to the top of their home…
Fairy Berries Lights. These charming little orbs of light gently fade in and out to add some after-dark magic to any yard. Scatter or hang them anywhere--they're even water resistant to add a glow to your pool, fountain or pond.
Bought an old light fixture for $5.00..painted it black…replaced the bulbs with solar lights…and then I was going to hang it from a shepherds hook..but then I noticed it would slide right into a piece of conduit…so I painted that black also. Inserted that into the ground. Instant light with no wiring!
