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.
