Solar notes

February 6, 2011, 2pm With the 80-litre Waeco fridge/freezer humming gently in the background, and the computers all being charged, I switched on the electric kettle for a cuppa, and glanced at the solar regulator.

Would you believe, the solar panels were pumping in 16.4Amps — that’s 32.8Amps at 12V!

The kettle dropped the battery readings during the four-minutes it was on, but within a minute or two the batteries were back in float mode.

Thanks Sol.
