Taking into account lead acid batteries having a limited amount of power cycles and are heavy and space consuming, I'm wondering if it wouldn't have been easier to leave the power to the top always on and control the architectural lighting by some kind of remote switch wireslessly e.g. via LPWAN ;-)

@alex_1024 that would mean interfering with the operation of the lighting system and we were not in a position to start mandating or making changes to this. Those simple/easy fixes are not always as simple or easy as you might first imagine!

So the tower now has a purpose ? You can ascend the tower a couple of days each year , I've never been up it yet but if I do I'll keep an eye open for all the RS article numbers ! Great article , best of luck with the project .
