Answers

You will need a storage battery, 12 volt and charge controler

will this work with my Natures Generator ?

Asked by Bob May 6, 2020

Answer

Panels will produce energy via a completed circuit when fully exposed to sunlight. You will have to check with the manufacturers of your generator to see if they use MC4-compatible connectors (present in this kit) or proprietary connectors, or if the panel specs meet their requirements. The 100W panels have the following specs: Vmpp:18, Voc:21.9, Impp:5.6, Isc:6.1

To accurately size a system we will need to know the wattage of your mini fridge. Contact support@grapesolar.com for assistance in sizing a system.

Yes it will. Hope this helps!

For the deep cycle battery, should I get a 6 volt or 12 volt battery? Also what size of inverter what I need?

Asked by DIYGAL May 17, 2018

Answers

Doesn't matter on the battery at all. Inverter depends in what you plan on using it for. If sensitive equipment, I might suggest pure sine wave inverter. Hope this helps!

Can I plug this into an existing 120 volt outlet at my home and have it feed power into the grid?

If they are all 100 watt panels, a 40 amp controller will work just fine. The type I am using is GS-PWM-40BT. Hope this helps!!

Will this poduce enough power to plug outdoor lighting into and have about a 5 hr charge?

Gets the job done. I added this to my previous 100w Grape Solar panel to run my 24/7 pump (a 12v boat bilge pump) in a fish stock tank. Of course a battery bank keeps it going at night, but the 2 panels are strong enough to run it daily and bring batteries to a full charge before I lose sunlight.

This includes 6 deep cell batteries in parallel with 3000 watt inverter providing electricity for all our needs which includes running two 12 volt pump (1 in the Bathroom to shower and 1 under the sink for my wife to do dishes)... vacuming... numerous phone charging outlets... running our new wave convection oven... and most important of all it provides lighting threw out our 14 x 40 cabin. Money well spent on solar panels.
