What size solar panel and Battery needed for a garage?

Asked by Curious May 8, 2018
4
Answers

The type of usage you mention needs a lot more than this purchase could provide. You would need a much bigger system and a DC to AC inverter. You should look up articles on the internet on how to size a solar installation. New England Solar is one place that has sizing information.

What tools will I need to install theses panels?

Asked by Daisy April 1, 2018
4
Answers

You will need a drill & drill bits for mounting the panel. A metric wrench set for tightening the mounting bolts and a wire stripping/ crimping tool for making connections to the charge controller.

Can I use this kit with a regular car battery

Yes, it will work fine with a car battery in keeping it charged up to prevent self discharge. Don't deep cycle a car battery as it won't last very long in this application. Golf car batteries will work much better.

Can this item power the water warmer in the chicken coop?

Asked by Ellen July 26, 2020

Answers

It is a 100 watt panel. That means in full sun at noon under a very clear sky it generates as much power as a 100 watt light bulb uses. That is not a lot of heat. Also it is 12 volts direct current. I don't know what type current your heater uses. I would guess it is a 120 volt device.

I tested it myself and got good results.
I bought this unit while it was special sale. I tested 2 times the 1st time during smoky sky (CA has wildfire), no sun around 4PM and saw current flowed into battery around 120mA at ~14V. The 2nd time when I got good morning sun light around 11AM. This time I tested with no load and with 60 watts light bull. At no load I saw current flowed into battery was 1.15A at ~14V. With load I saw current flow into battery was 3.25A while current flowed to load was ~4.8A. Based on this I can tell solar panel supplied 3.25A X 14V = 45.5 watts at 60 watts load. The battery is 35A hour mighty max. It is hard to say how much more sunlight to get more current. But it was about 50% of 100 watts. Conclusion: All works but the power from the panel is 50% less than spec. I can use this for router and monitor and laptop during power cut off (PG&E). However, I need one more panel to provide more power.

Excellent quality. Connectors and hardware are top notch. I installed this panel on my detached garage to power 4 recessed LED lights. The controller is easy to understand. 2 USB ports to charge phones, tablets or speakers. The only con is the cable provided is 16 ft long, it needs to be cut in half to be used. So if you are mounting the panel more than 8 foot away buy a second cable.

Have not used yet but quality seems great and shipping was on time. The only thing is that it should be mentioned in the advertisement that the in line fuse is not included with the kit. Would recommend this product.
