Review the Geo 1 - Mains Free Solar Lighting Kit
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 mains lighting 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.
Geo 1 Applications
The Geo 1 will light an area of 16 Square Metres making it ideal for medium 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 simply by adding an inverter.
What Battery Do I Need?
The Geo 1 - Mains Free Solar Lighting Kit
can be used with a 12Ah or greater 12v battery. If you are using a low capacity battery, such as the 12Ah, we recommend disconnecting the battery when not in regular use, to prevent overcharge. Alternatively you can add a charge controller
to the system so there's no need to disconnect the battery.
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 to install
will be included in pack but it really is this simple.
How it works
The solar panel within this kit will generate electricity 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
I'm thinking of the the ego 4 light for a cabin. I believe that all the lights will go on at once, I was hoping to have three areas of which not nessasary wanting light at all times can they be separate or is it to buy three single lights thank you
By Dawn Muggridge on Mar 3, 2014
You can purchase further light switches and add them into your circuit to stop all of the lights turning on at once.
Ive recently purchased the Geo 1 - Mains Free Solar Lighting Kit plus charge controller. Ive noticed that the the video, instructions and diagram all show different ways of connecting the kit. Can you please confirm which way is correct. i used the video, and the light is working but i only done it today so dont know if the batterys going to charge.
By Steve on Feb 15, 2014
The video is the best method as you can see it directly as it is happening: step by step. All of the instructions should say the same thing although the Geo 1 Mains Free Solar Lighting Kit doesn't normally have (or use) a charge controller.
Would i need to use a charge controller with this kit?
By Steve on Feb 7, 2014
No. You do not need a charge controller with the Geo 1 or Geo 2 Mains Free Lighting Kits.
I have bought a 600watt oil heater to put in my summer house behind my gagage it has electricity but would like to run the heater seperately with a solar panel need to know what size to get and would it work with a timer THANKS
By ada on Feb 3, 2014
Unfortunately we cannot provide the solar kit that would be required to power the oil heater. Our systems have been designed to run lights. Anything else will drain the battery very quickly.
Can I use a timer on this system?
By Paul on Jan 23, 2014
Yes, you can easily add this 12v timer into the lighting circuit.
