Internally illuminate a new or existing sign with our solar powered tube light system. Our solar kits do not require any cable trenching, or connection to the grid. Supplied with all necessary solar equipment to allow for a quick and easy installation. Our commercial grade system is suited to your location, so it will perform as expected year-round.
This system includes between one and four 24” LED light tubes, along with solar panel, batteries, MPPT charge controller, battery enclosure, and necessary cables. The quantity of LED light bars necessary for your sign will be determined based on the sign dimensions and the sign design. Each light bar emits approx. 1152 lumens with a 180 degree beam.
The system will automatically turn the lights on a sunset, and stay lit for your desired illumination period. Our systems can accommodate dusk to dawn illumination, up to 8 hours or any other requested illumination duration. An 8 hour illumination can be split in to two periods using the dual timer feature.
Required solar panel size / wattage and battery capacity is determined based on quantity of light fixtures, installation location, and desired illumination time. Please contact our sales department for assistance in selecting the appropriate sized solar equipment for your system.

A pair of triangle shaped support frames are supplied for the solar panel.
Solar panel must face South and should be in full direct sunlight throughout the day.
System requirements are based on solar panel facing south, and angled at 15 degrees plus installation location latitude.
If the above requirements can not be met, notify our sales team so we can calculate system requirements.
Subject to warranty registration, a limited 20 year solar panel warranty applies and a limited 5 year warranty on all other components (excluding batteries). Battery warranty (if applicable) is with the battery manufacturer.* Warranty registration is required (after purchase), otherwise a standard 30 day limited warranty will apply. After making your purchase, go to www.solarilluminations.com/registration to register your warranty.
Additionally, unlimited, lifetime technical support is available for all warranty registrations.
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.
