You know when your driving down the road and you see the little weather stations weathering away,does any one know where to get the small solar panels that power the weather stations from, i can't seem to find out at all, i'm thinking of using one or two too power my shed, i'm not sure if it would work but its only to power a light and propagator.
thanks

:lol: was about to say Maplins - but I wasn't quick enough - I'm hoping to fit some of the shed/barn lights in my loft when I get the floor done

Hi, Old tree man
In order to make you solar power system work properly.
1)you should know the electrical load consumption.
2)Average sunlight time in your area.
3)The required running time of your electrical appliance.

Just saw something called Solar Mate in the new CAT catalogue (Centre for Alternative Technology); they are meant specifically for light in sheds without mains connection.
