Go solar and forget all the codes and yada yada yada. My wife bought some for the deck a few days ago for $0.50 each and they were working just fine in the rain the last I looked. At 50 cents each you could line the 3 walls at the top.

No.
He was suggesting an alternative of LV on the posts.

If you like the fixture, you can get one quite similar at Lowe's.

OK, but why bother with this?
