A solar lighting apparatus is disclosed for illuminating the interior of roofed building while simultaneously generating electrical power from one or more photovoltaic panels secured to the reflector apparatus for rotation therewith to track daily movements of the sun. The photovoltaic panels may be pivotally supported by the hinged reflector of the reflector apparatus and may be slidingly secured to a track for allowing the photovoltaic panels to fold to a horizontal position when the reflector apparatus is closed. Alternatively, arrays of photovoltaic panels may be supported on opposite sides of the reflector apparatus by brackets secured to a lower frame member of the reflector apparatus. A wind detection apparatus is also disclosed for simulating the onset of darkness during the existence of dangerously high winds.
