How a Solar Powered Bird Bath Fountain Could Reduce Energy Costs
These fountains are usually built with an on-off switch that switches on the lighting system when it’s not in use. They work best in areas where there is plenty of direct sunlight throughout the day. But even if there isn’t much sun during the day, you can still use the solar panels and switch the lighting on and off as and when required.
As mentioned earlier, these baths cost more than other types of solar devices. So you will need to spend a little more money for them but they are worth the investment since they could provide better and long-lasting results. They could even improve your garden’s aesthetics. You may also consider purchasing them in bulk if you are planning to install them in more than one location. A solar powered bird bath pump can be installed on any smooth and flat surface. If you have a patio, you could connect it to the floor through a hole.
Before buying a pump, consider the number of birds that you want to attract. A bigger fountain would be more effective if you have a lot of birds flocking around it. If the sunlight hits the panels directly, the energy-efficient devices can only generate small amounts of power. So if you want your fountain to generate a lot of power, you could invest in a bigger pump.
