Solar powered garden office

If you're thinking of using solar power in your shed, you should certainly take a look at this article at Better Generation called Solar Power for your Shed. "The basic idea is that a small solar photo voltaic panel is mounted somewhere on the shed to maximise the amount of solar energy falling on it (usually on the roof)," they write. "This is then connected up to a standard 12v battery (such as one from a car) so that it will trickle-charge up the battery during daylight hours."


  1. Thanks Alex - we also have on our site a new solar lighting case study that follows a recent installation of a lighting setup on a large shed in south London. We're happy to answer any of your readers' questions about suitability for their setups
