Solar Panels

What success is there with bimini-top mounted solar panels? Needs are around 300 watts p/day. Manufactures of panels and mounting systems? And what you do it again? Thanks Mike Goodnough Summer Place, 387#18 Your unit of measure for your needs is confusing to me. Don’t you really want to ask for a certain amount of energy (W-hours) to be delivered on a daily basis? I suppose you could come up with a simple model and derate the peak wattage generated by the panels less any conversion losses (to generated ~12V for charging the batteries) and multiply it by the number of hours you expect on average to have decent sun. mikemea@centurylink.net I’ve not looked at this myself but perusing the web just now and I see most panels are rated in either/both amps and watts for their maximum output. Their outputs are unregulated and peak voltages can
