Also, there’s been a few people sending me email questions about various problems or requests for advice on all aspects of solar lighting. That’s great news and I look forward to more of you getting in touch so I can offer my advice and recommendations. Just use my email that’s available on the website.

I’m not exactly sure when I’ll be back to update the site more fully but I expect it will be in the month of August 2012. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.
