Eco-friendly Christmsa party lights are ones that operate on solar power. These enviromental friendly lights draw energy from the sun during the day which is stored in a rechargeable NiMH battery. At night, the Christmas party lights switch on automatically and run all night until they automatically turn off at dawn
The advantage of using solar powered Christmas party lights is that they can be strung just about anywhere on your property since they don’t require an electric outlet to operate. Eco-friendly solar Christmas lights gives you the flexibility to decorate trees in the yard too far away from an electrical outlet, back yard fence lines, trellises, or even the dog house. What also makes eco-friendly solar party lights practical to use is there is no danger of the party lights catching fire or blowing a fuse in the house.
Eco-friendly Christmas party lights cost more than your basic Christmas string of twinkle lights, but are certainly worth it for “green” families looking to cut down their electricity consumption.
