Fall and winter are getting nearer every day. Does anyone have any good ideas for lighting a coop that is not near a reliable electric outlet. Battery Power? Also, how to connect said lighting to a timer

I have a heavy duty extension cord running out to my coop. I run 2 lights (one in the coop, one in the run), my electric fence charger and a power brick for my trail camera. Total draw is less than 100 watts. I am hoping to run underground wire to the coop before winter comes, but that may or may not happen before the ground freezes!

If you do go with solar or batteries, go with LED's - they draw the least amount of power and provide the most light per watt.
