Now there’s no excuse not to bring solar power [2] into your life – in just a few weeks IKEA [3] will be stocking their shelves with a new line of solar-powered [4] summer night lighting! Dubbed SOLIG [5], the collection ranges from the practical to the decorative and features energy-efficient LED bulbs. Best of all, these new lamps are not only fun, funky, and earth-friendly — they’re affordable [6] as well!

All SOLIG lighting will feature solar cells [7] able to transform sunlight into illuminating electricity. Each lighting fixture has been fashioned with LED bulbs [8] that reduce their energy consumption by 70 percent while increasing bulb life at least four times longer than an incandescent bulb. The lamps also emulate popular IKEA designs [5], so there’s no need to fret over clashing décor.

Priced from $9.99 for a solar powered light tube to $39.99 for a solar powered floor lamp, these pieces definitely won’t break the bank, and they’re sure to provide wonderful outdoor ambiance while keeping your electricity meter low.
