Warm weather and plenty of sunshine mean it’s the perfect time of year for a backyard party. Why not use the sun to your full advantage during your event? Solar products are a great way to use sustainable, green energy to power your barbecue, game day, celebration or pool party. Keep your energy bills down with these popular sun-friendly options:

Solar Lighting for Your Backyard

Nothing sets the mood better than lighting. Even when the sun goes down, you can still tap into the day’s energy resources with solar-powered lights. Check out some of these unique ideas for lighting up your festivities:

  • Solar LED String Lights: Draped on your bushes, hung like a curtain or strung up your fence, these are a safe choice and easy to put up and take down.
  • Ground Stake Lights: Light up a winding backyard path, highlight a backyard area or add additional lighting to surround your swimming pool with ground stake lights. Handy and often inexpensive, all you need is a couple of inches of soil to keep them secure. The small solar strip is typically located on the top of the light.
  • Tiki Torches: These are a classic, fun take on outdoor lighting and perfect for a party atmosphere. Solar-powered versions eliminate the hassle of open flames, batteries, and cords.

Solar-Powered Swimming Pool Cover

Keeping the cover on your pool during your gathering? A solar pool cover will use the sun’s rays to help your pool water retain heat when not in use. Jumping into cold water or waiting hours for the water to warm up each day is not ideal, which is why this option is an easy, hassle-free way to keep your pool water temperature up. LinerWorld offers two high-quality solar covers including the HIGH TECH Solar Cover and the MEGA TECH Solar Cover, both of which can heat up your pool by 15 degrees or more.
