Solar lights used to have a bad reputation and for good reason. When we started up in 2006 virtually all the solar lights available were substandard. The technology was there, but suppliers seemed to work on the basis that customers were only prepared to pay for cheap lights which would fail soon after purchase leaving a trail of disappointed shoppers behind them. This seemed to result in a catch-22 where customers had no faith in solar lights so retailers had to make them even cheaper to convince people to buy them.
The Solar Centre was the first UK company to break that mould by bringing high quality year-round reliable solar lights to the UK market. Our reputation has been built on supplying serious mains-equivalent solar lighting that is functional, reliable and easy to install. We believe that consumers are happy to pay a little bit more so long as the lights they receive are bright, well made and can work year-round in the UK. Mains-equivalent solar lights will not only save you money on your power bills, they will save you the cost and inconvenience of calling an electrician to install mains powered lighting outside your home.
