Review the Geo 2 - Mains Free Solar Lighting Kit
Great bit of kit
Fantastic kit for lighting, really lights up my 12x10 shed, more than enough light, my only gripe that it was slightly annoying installing and there was not enough cable to space the light out, so I had to purchase more cable. Otherwise I would seriously recommend this product

Unlike large solar panel systems that can take many years to pay for themselves, our Geo Mains Free Solar Lighting Kits
deliver instant savings. Installing a lighting supply to remote locations isn't always possible and is often highly expensive when it is.
Our Geo kits can be installed by anyone with basic DIY skills and are exempt from Part P of the building regulations which means there is no need to pay an electrician to have your kit installed and certified.
The Geo 2 - Mains Free Solar Lighting Kit
can be used with a 12ah or greater 12v battery. It is recommended however that if you are only using a low capacity battery that you either add a charge controller to the system or disconnect it when not in regular use, to prevent overcharge.
Geo 2 Applications
The Geo 2 will light an area of 32 square metres making it ideal for medium / large sized rooms, sheds, garages, outhouses, wendy houses, greenhouses and tree houses. As well as providing you with lighting you can use the charge stored in the battery for powering a variety of small electronic devices.
What Battery Do I Need?
You can choose a battery using the drop down selector above the Add to Basket button. If you already have a 12v battery you can use it with this kit, please note using a lower capacity then recommended will reduce the length of time the lights run for.

How it works
The solar panel within this kit will generate electicity from the sun, into a connected 12v battery. This battery then stores the power ready for use when required. Connected to the battery via a simple circuit are the 12v light bulbs, with a switch situated between them and the battery. Once the switch is turned on the circuit is complete and charge from the battery will power your 12v lightbulbs.

as part of the circuit.
I have a 12volt car battery fully charged all the time can i use it for this system Geo 2
By Michael on Jan 23, 2014
es, our batteries are top of the line deep cycle sealed gel batteries but you don't have to use them, any 12v battery will do the job, just bear in mind the capacity.
I'm looking at purchasing your Geo 2 - Mains Free Solar Lighting Kit with a 34ah battery - can you tell me which of your charge controllers you would suggest for this set up?
By Irene on Jan 23, 2014
This charge controller
is the best option if you want to add one into the circuit however it's not essential. If the kit isn't getting much use in the summer you can just disconnect the panel from the battery using the crocodile clips instead.
Hi, I'm interested in purchasing one of your 20W panels to provide lighting in my garage; I note that you advertise that the installation is exempt from Part P building regs - Is building reg approval required for the installation of the panel on the roof given that this adds (minimal) additional structural loading?
By Ian on Jan 23, 2014
You won't need building reg approval to fit a small panel to your roof. The approval requirement is for large scale grid tied PV systems.
