Illuminate your sign or billboard with a solar powered lighting system. Avoid monthly meter and electric bills by installing an off-grid solar kit; no trenching electric cables necessary.
This solar powered sign light system is supplied with a single light fixture offered in 5 Watts, 10 Watts, 20 Watts or 30 Watts. The kit is supplied with the necessary equipment including the solar panel, solar rechargeable batteries, MPPT charge controller, battery enclosure, interconnecting cables, and solar panel mounting hardware.
The light can illuminate for up to 8 hours, or dusk to dawn. Other options are available upon request. For systems with a maximum of 8 hours illumination; the light duration can be split in to two periods. For example, illuminating for 4 hours after sunset and then 4 hours before sunrise, or any other two period 8 hour combination.
Please note that the installation location, desired light fixture power (Wattage), as well as the illumination time will determine the appropriate sized solar panel and batteries for your system. Please refer to the zone map and options table below, and select the correct system option from the drop down bar above.
1 - Using the map below as a reference, determine what zone your installation site is located in
2 - Using the table below, determine what system option you should select. Choose your desired lamp power, and illumination period within your zone. The point where the two intersect will be the system option you require.
For installation sites in zone 4 or outside of the United States, please contact our sales department for system requirements and pricing. The zone map above is based on estimations and may not be accurate for all areas. For the most accurate solar panel sizing we suggest contacting our sales department. If you require a system with an illumination time other than 8 hours or dusk to dawn, please contact our sales department.

Please Note: This product is a special order and is non-returnable except in the event of a fault (during its warranty period) when the product, once returned will be repaired or replaced.
The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and usually set facing South at an appropriate angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. All solar lights must be used in a completely dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being 'defective' or 'not as described'. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
