Possibly a solar-powered battery charger?
Never at night, and never during rain. When the sun comes out, the
battery is being topped off... and thereafter it's on trickle-charge.
Any place in that direction have solar panels, or those little
driveway/walkway lamps that have solar panels on top of each lamp?
