Outside Light Project – ‘Free’ Solar Lighting for ‘Just’ £195.77…

…and none of it sold by us 🙁

OK it’s expensive and at 13p a kW/h I could run a standard 60W light for about 2.8 years for the same cost but – well – that’s not really the point is it?

I’ve long thought of having a roof full of solar panels and a large inverter in the loft powering our hot water but sadly that’s not going to happen soon so I thought I’d try my own mini project.

So here it is – my ‘free’ garden lighting project:
