OK folks sorry for the late follow up, but I finally got a chance to
tinker with this some more and was able to serve up a website from the
raspberry pi using node.js, running of course on a battery rather than
solar panels as it was about midnight by that time. Big thanks to The
Doctor who recompiled node on his B+ over the better part of a day. I
recommend following this link and using this package if you want to set
node up on your RPi. Once I get a bit further along in terms of
functionality, I'll share my whole B+ image and power electronics
schematic for other people to use.

Yes, but not easily. 

I followed the tutorial you linked to later in your post, but was
unable to get it to work reliably. What did work was compiling libv8
and node.js manually and building .deb packages, a process that took
most of a day on a RasPi model B. If you want to give the package a
try, here's the link to our public repo:
