What were some of the new things that were possible because of edisons light bulb invention?

So many things became possible. The ability to see at night was a major event. For thousands of years night was considered a dangerous time because people couldn't see where they were going and dangers hid in the shadows. Street lights, signs on stores lit, night baseball games, homes lit, movies began, and people could move around at night. Stores could be opened later and restraurants could stay open. Factories with longer hours and the threat of things blowing up because of the gas that had been used for light was gone.

Solar street lights are raised light sources which are powered by solar panels generally mounted on the lighting structure or integrated into the pole itself. The solar panels charge a rechargeable battery, which powers a fluorescent or LED lamp during the night.

Many can stay lit for more than one night if the sun is not in the sky for an extended period of time.
