Show All ItemsEarlier this year we bought a 10' X 20" storage building and had it delivered to the backyard. The storage building is great - I'm slowly moving things from my garage to the building, I'm doing this slowly because at the end of the day I don't want everything thrown in the building - I want some organization.One problem with the building is long before it gets completely dark outside it's so dark inside that I can't see anything. It's cost prohibitive to run power to the building so I decided to do the next best thing - solar powered lighting. For an application like this you really don't need a lot - you need to collect enough solar energy to turn on the lights maybe 15 minutes when you need them? But you also need enough energy to carry over cloudy days. Also, my direct view of the sun is limited from the roof of my storage building by trees so I figure I'll get an hour or two of good strong sunlight a day. This meant that I probably could not get away with a small 15 watt solar panel.I ended up buying a Harbor Freight 45 Watt solar panel kit and you can find my full write-up of this kit in this instructable.
