    Thinking of using this for a HDU carved sign on 2 posts.. anyone ever use or have a better alternative?
    The town will not allow lighting from the ground up only shining down.. (strange I know) They do not want to deal with wiring all the way to the building so looking for a top mount solar solution... Thanks in advance :)

    I don't know about that one, but we got a solar light at Home Depot about three months ago to put at the base of a flag for our home and it lights up the entire flag beautifully. It stays lit from dusk til dawn..... about 9 hours so far. It gives off plenty of light and only cost about $29.00.

    It really depends on the location. From my experience with similar lights, if it's in a really dark area it will work OK. But if there is a lot of other lighting around it won't be that noticable. We did one and the client ended up having an electrician install a serious commercial unit that worked better.
