Old-way energy costs were a sticking point. It used to be that in the old days, expensive conduit piping added to costs. Trenches of from twelve to eighteen inches needed to be dug, and then weather-resistant and long-lasting wiring ran from the house to each of the garden lights in a sequence. Let’s not forget that all those power needs had to be met by an additional fuse or circuit within the house. This required even more energy and added to the monthly electric bill. With solar lighting, though, that’s no longer a problem.
