What Is a Watt? How Many Watts Do I Need?

A watt is the measurement of the rate of energy transfer. You may know it best from light bulbs! Most fixtures are rated for bulbs between two wattages. This is because the wiring in the fixture has a maximum wattage that is available for the bulb. The lower the wattage, the less energy is used. The higher the wattage, the more energy is used. When it comes to low-voltage landscape lighting, your needs really depend on the number of lights that you are including in your display and how you plan the circuitry.
