Our house is about 30 years old. When it was built, we had a pole lamp
installed down at the end of the driveway.
It was electric with the wires running in a piece of thin-wall conduit
from the house to the pole.
Now apparently the wiring has failed. I was waiting for spring thaw to
start digging up the front lawn to replace the wiring and probably the
A friend mentioned that I should look for a solar pole lamp to replace
what is there and save all the digging and wiring.
I don't need a lot of light, just something for the newspaper delivery
person to aim at. I did some searching and found some lights. The big
problem is I don't like the styles that I had found. We need something
a little more modern looking than the typical coach light style.
My questions are:
Does anyone have experience with solar pole lamps?
Any recommend sources?
Or, any other alternative ideas to eliminate the need to dig a trench
through my front yard?
