Hey all, I was wondering if there would be a feasible way to run a string of christmas lights powered by a solar cell?

I need to be able to design a system (with arduino) that can store power during the day and automatically turn its self on at night (I'll adjust the program's on/off times with the changing of seasons).

Would it be possible to build this? Or would I need a ridiculously big solar panel for arduino to charge a battery to run the lights?

Thanks!

Impossible to answer without knowing how much power the lights use, and how long they will be on for.
