Will the SunVolt solar panel work under a light bulb?

For all intents and purposes no, the solar panel is not intended to work under a light bulb of any sort.

Solar panels don't use the light that casts the familiar shadow we see. Rather it uses another form of the light that we don't see, this light is not generated by light bulbs. That being said, if you have a lot of light bulbs it will technically work but this is not what a solar panel is intended for. The solar panel is intended to be used outdoors with light from the sun.
