Red face tying lighting to electricity from irrigation valves

I want to install lighting but there is no place to tie in for electricity. There are irrigation valves that run off a time clock in the area and I was wondering if I can tie into the wires that run the valves to install lighting.

thank you for your help

Not a good idea.
Most-most valves are 12 or 24 volts.

Not only is the voltage a problem, but the power is a problem too. The transformer in the sprinkler controller isn't prepared to supply enough power for lighting.
