Solar panel powering multiple exterior lights

Posted by hoosierdoc (My Page) on

I have a landscaping bridge that I want to illuminate with around 10 low-voltage lights. It's about 200' from the back of the house though and there is a great tree for mounting a solar panel. Would it be feasible to design a system that uses a 12v battery as a storage cell and runs a low-voltage lighting system? Is this already a current product?

thanks for any advice you can offer.

if they are 12 volt lights then yes, you can easily put a deepcycle battery as the power source and have a small solar panel recharge it. i have seen several kits like this before, though i have not used one myself.
