Many evening gatherings and events take place indoors. As a result, large amounts of energy are used on lighting and temperature control. By moving these events to outdoor locations such as porches, decks, or patios energy can be saved by enjoying comfortable evening temperatures. The warm light from Socialight’s three high efficiency LEDs and richly colored water resistant waxed paper encourages partygoers to venture outdoors and participate in social mingling. The modular system is sold as powered hanging cores and a set of colored paper shades. The core, meant to last an extended period of time, is hung from the power lines while the shell can be replaced or exchanged based upon the desired feeling of an event.
