Posted by Mike O in Idea Specs.

Some of the required components would be: 

Solar panels,  Battery pack, Transformer, LED-based lights, Sufficient wiring for flexible usage.

Some kits exist like this one, but this example lacks adequate power, wattage and likely storage to be effective. 

  • A minimum of 30 watts of solar panels (polycrystalline would be the most durable and cost-effective)
  • At least 6 lights of minimum 2-3 watts each 
  • Battery pack capacity for 5 running hours of all lights when fully charged.

Good DIY project you got going here. It will be interesting to see your results!

You might find Flexible Solar Panels to be a big help.

Through recent developments, Silicon Solar has provided ways of listing thin, light weight, flexible solar panels allowing for multiple applications to now be solar accessible and make people’s dreams they never thought would come true, come alive.
