This is an inexpensive photovoltaic setup sold by Harbor Freight stores. Wires from the panels come into the house and into a controller box and charge a 12 volt battery (the battery was not included with the package). It comes with two compact fluorescent lights and has a USB port which can be used to charge electronic devices. Future plans are to move the panels to a more favorable location, possibly add an additional battery, add some additional 12 volt LED lights and an inverter to provide normal household current.
