You don't need 24/7 lighting to keep them laying through the winter. Just a few extra hours in the morning and/or evening is enough. Nor will this make an appreciable difference in the longevity of the hens: They're only good for a few years no matter what you do, and even given summer lighting, most hens will still miss a day here and there.

That said, while you can't truly get an egg a day, you can get reasonably close. In fact, the world record is slightly more than 1 a day, 371 eggs laid in 364 days.
