Westinghouse solar lights are landscape lights containing a small photovoltaic cell that converts sunlight into electrical energy. While the sun is shining, the photovoltaic cell captures solar energy that is then used to power the lights.
A photo resistor built into each solar light unit recognizes darkness and uses the energy stored in the photovoltaic cell to turn on the light-emitting diode (LED) bulb.
Westinghouse manufactures many different types of solar lights to decorate outdoor pathways, gardens and yards. Westinghouse offers hi-output as well as standard path lights, mosaic, novelty and seasonal solar lights. To prevent damage, the company recommends storing lights during of bad weather, such as heavy rain, thunderstorms and snowstorms.
