I think there's a hole in the roof, and the bottles are refracting the light from the sun. They don't glow or anything.

They are just a very basic type of skylight. The bleach is just added to stop the water from going stagnant and turning cloudy... I can't see how it puts out an electrical charge, unless they're just measuring the solar output...
