All our lit products can be "solar powered" including EZLit Plug-n-Play Channel Letters, Raceway Mounted Channel Letters and Lit Shape Signs. Pay attention to the size and estimated wattage of your sign. The higher the wattage the larger the solar panels and battery that will be required.

Installation

The physical installation of your sign will be the same as it would be if the sign was not Solar Powered. The solar conversion of your sign from Conventional Electric AC line voltage to Solar DC is very simple. There are one or more AC to 12VDC Power Supplies inside the sign when you receive it. You are going to bypass the power supplies with your wire from the Morningstar Sunlight Controller. We can walk you through this if you are unfamiliar with this type of thing.

Your sign will then be controlled by the Morningstar Sunlight Controller. On the controller you can determine when your sign turns and off based on how much sunlight is hitting the solar panel. You can also control how long the sign stays on a night so to not drain your battery by staying on late in the evening when you are not get any benefit from it.
