Smile Setting up driveway Solar LED lights over approximately 250m (820ft) length.

I want to put in some driveway bollard type LED lights. I am thinking of using about 10 2 watt 12 volt lights connected to a deep cycle gel cell charged by some 44 Volt 5 Amp solar panels.
Can I get some advice on how to achieve this. Some things I am pondering is voltage drop, wire size, charge controller, circuit design etc.

Thanks for any help or links to a similar project.
Sam

I think you would be better served by keeping each light independent (or group just several lights on a solar cell) rather than try to use one large battery array.
