One of the most important factors in promoting your business is your signage. There are many varieties of signs. Some are neon and some lighted from the inside by flourescent light bulbs that cast light on a printed, opague surface enclosed by a steel frame atop a pole. But many business signs consist of a simple brick or stone structure flanked perhaps by landscaping features or stand-alone signs that are not otherwise illuminated by neon or light bulbs. These kinds of signs require a separate light source. Usually this seperate lighting source is a hard-wired spotlight that is a few feet away from the sign and pointed directly at it so that it is illuminated at night. For signs that have no lighting, one alternative is to trench an electrical conduit from a building to the sign and hooking up to the building's electrical system, thereby incurring installation costs as well as a higher monthly electric bill. Another option is to take your signage solar! A solar panel collects light from the sun to charge batteries during the day and then uses that power to light the sign at night. No trenching. Easy install. No increased electric bill!

Step #2: Insolation Hours
Use the map to the right to find the approximate sun hour rating of your sign location. Clicking on the map will open a window showing more detailed regional maps to help you determine the most accurate sun hours rating.
Step #3: Lighting Hours
Determine an operating time that is suitable for your sign light. Using the chart below, match your insolation hours and lighting hours to the appropriate sign lighting kit. Each kit is designed to provide 5 day of autonomy (battery backup).
