Solar Power Kits

Solar Power Kits

We offer a Solar Engine Power Supply (SEPS) to go with our 12 VDC Windsock Assembly. The SEPS comes in two sizes – 80W and 160W – which is rated for 10+ days of autonomy in most locations. Although standardized, customers should always confirm installation location with Flight Light to ensure the SEPS is properly rated.
