    I pretty much understand what you have built and appreciate the tutorial. Is there a simple way to reverse what this does? So that it would turn on a light (or provide power) during the day instead of at night? The only way I've figured out how to do that is a second relay in the circuit and that seems very inefficient. I'm not an electronics guy at all, but trying to learn. Thank you.

    Try connecting transistor in reverse but I don't know it's work or not. Thankyou.

    I'm wondering if I substitute a 547 pnp transistor for the 547 npn. Trying to puzzle my way through the spec sheets, it seems like that might work. Time to dig out the breadboard and check my component inventory.
