Questions & Answers

What amp fuse should I use with this panel?

What amp fuse should I use with this panel?
Asked by: Bowhunter
I would use 20amp, as I use a Renogy Rover 20Amp charge controller with this panel and even on the most clear, direct sun it never gets close to 20 Amps

I am looking at getting 4 of these and mount on my boat. Would it be ok to wire in parallel with a MPPT 20 Amp controller?
Asked by: Sailor
Your controller would be VERY inadequate for (4) 180W panels... You'll need at best, an 60-80 amp charge controller...If you overload a too small capacity controller, it will fail and then you have nothing...

I had a shed built. Can I use to run lights and maybe an ac unit?

Asked by: Newey
You can run lights (preferably LED) but not an ac unit. You need to install a controller and deep cycle battery bank to store the energy. If you use 12V LED lights you can wire direct from the battery (properly fused) to the lights. If you want to use standard house fixtures you need an inverter to convert the 12V DC power to 110V AC. There are calculations you should do to give you an idea of how many lights you can power and for how long given the anticipated power output from the panel and the storage capacity of your battery bank. Note that a 180 watt panel states the max power. The actual output will be less.

Hurricane generator

Can I use this a a power back up? I was considering 2 12v deep cycle batteries, a charge controller and a mobile pvc stand that I can take in and out of my home. Feasible?
Asked by: Gringo
It might be feasible if you only use a minimal amount of battery power. As an example, I'm using this 180-w panel and one more 160-w from the same company for my 23' travel trailer. The two batteries power a gas heater with electric fan (comes on about 2 or 3 times per night), gas refrigerator, water pump, stereo, and lights, all 12v. Those devices use about one quarter total battery capacity in a single day. It usually takes 1/2 to 3/4 of a day (daylight) at 70 - 80 outside temperature to fully charge both batteries. Based on my experience with a total of 340-watts, using just one 180-w panel to charge two 12v batteries will require ideal conditions. If you're thinking of using the same devices I'm using and want to fully charge every day, I would recommend two panels.

180-Watt Monocrystalline PV Solar Panel for Cabins, RV's and Back-Up Power Systems is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 82.

I first purchased a Cynergy 180 Watt panel for my trailer and liked the performance, so I decided to purchase another Cynergy Panel. However, they no longer sell a 180 Watt Mono panel. So I found the Grape 180 Watt with nearly the same specs as the Cynergy purchased it from HD. Wow, there is no comparison between the two panels. Performance of the Grape is slightly better but the best part is the frame construction. I drilled both panels for mounting and there was less flex in the Grape frame and corner assembly of the Grape is reinforced with a stainless insert. How do I know this....I broke a #12 stainless self drill in one corner. Twice!! Only small issue is that Grape does not color code their hookup wires and when your building cables and the panel is flat on the roof it's impossible to see the markings on the terminal box. If you don't trust the sex of the connector to tell which is positive you should mark the cable before mounting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great solar panel for off grid cabin at a very reasonable price. I purchased this solar panel to replace a Harbor Freight set up that I had been using for a few years. This panel is by far much better than the 45W (3) panel set up. The biggest and most time consuming job in installation was having to make the frame for the panel to attach to on the roof. Once that was done, the panel was easy to connect to my existing charge controller. The leads are rather short on this new panel, so expect to buy extensions if you need to. I am very happy with the initial performance as well as the sleek look on the roof. This is an off grid application, and 165 watts vs 45 watts is a great improvement for my needs which are simply lighting and small electronics. I am anxious to experience the long term results with this new panel. NOTE: A major deciding factor in purchasing this panel for me was that it is made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Offgrid Living Over the last two years, I have built my solar power system which includes 10 of these panels. They are awesome. They provide enough charge to my 8 battery bank to run a freezer, washer and dryer, quite a few CFL's, small power tools and several other things and I still find my CC on float because the batteries are fully charged. I am going to plug in my fridge and turn off my gas one and I am sure there will be enough power for the fridge also. I have posted pics of my CC and the battery bank so you could see what the panels can do/handle. I plan on buying 10 more of these and another CC by the end of the year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our camper! The panel comes with nothing but the panel and leads off from it so you'll need a solar power controller, 10 awg copper wire or whatever you choose, and all of the connectors. We knew this so had it all, then went camping! It worked like a charm! We didn't need to run our furnace so couldn't get enough things to run to even take down our battery bank. It kept the batteries fully charged the whole weekend, and half the weekend was overcast. What we WERE running was...an exhaust fan in the ceiling of the camper (about 6 hours/day), a few lights, and constantly charging cellphones, Ipad, weather radio, or whatever else gadgets we needed charged, and a TV/DVD player for 2-3 hours each night.
