This may seem like a dumb question, but since you're trying to create 2 comparators, why don't you just start out with a dual comparator like the LM2903. If you configure your sensors correctly, (vertical sun block between them), you won't even need the dark sensor, (as has already been mentioned), and with a couple MOSFETS you can probably eliminate the relays too. I haven't looked up the rating on the 747 op-amp, but I wouldn't trust it to reliably drive a relay without causing other problems.
