My electricity bill: I paid it once, it was pricey, but it's good for 100 watts and there isn't any envelope coming in the mail each month. I'd like to get a 12 volt refrigerator next, BUT then I'd need another 50 watt panel and battery.
For a rainy day Extra 80 watts
Low Cost low voltage Lighting.
The rest is pretty self explanatory. None the less, notice the washer fastened to the ceiling to hold the light in place by the magnet on the back and a hook or another wire works great as a safety hook in case the light gets knocked around. .
To help keep my cage cool I use a power converter to operate a Silenx micro fan which is designed to operate at 6 to 12 volts.
This picture shows how I have block the switch so I won't give them any more than 4.5 volts.
Oh yeah: I got the light at Harbor Freight and the voltage converter was bought at Radio Shack.

You may have noticed that my idea of neat a tighty electrical wires does not exist. Well, maybe a little. it's been getting better over the years, but the reason it looks the mess that it does is that it has been changed around a number of times over the years, but in the past couple years I've got closer to what is more practical. For instance, now I have three way lighting switches at my bed and at the door, and I'm talking florescent and non florescent.
I use a Jack amplified TV antenna, however I ditched the 120AC converter power supply and I've wired it directly to my 12 volt DC supply.
I've got a Pioneer Super tuner for a stereo and I can run the stereo DVD and TV through it.
In this picture you may notice I had cardboard on the walls to help insulate it. But since then, I've installed rigid foam board and boy you would believe the difference it makes.
