Solar powered house lights

Just finished installing my baby solar power system.

I've got a single 80Watt PV panel, connected to a charge controller, connected to 4 car batteries, which drive a small 12DC to 230AC invertor. Which then runs all the CFL lights in the house.

Doing this in mid-winter doesn't make much sense but - really - I'm just playing with this stuff.
