Sleepout solar

Posted 3 years ago

We're having a sleepout built and would like it to have self-contained solar power. The sleepout is already built, and ready for gib, so it's time for wiring/electrics. I've tried some of the bigger well-known solar providers but it seems they start at hot water or full household packages (we already have solar hot water on the house, so don't want another house-based package). The sleepout will only have a light and a couple of power points (probably for a TV or game station).
