Solar energy would be efficient and freely charge our devices:
- Cell phone
- Marine radio
- Small Power Tools
The summer should provide plenty of sunshine to power the small technical devices we may carry. Rob found a solar energy distributor in Wisconsin who setup a system geared toward our specifications. This stationary solar panel has the capacity of 240W.
The solar panel to charge controller (white) determines how and how much energy to send to the 12 volt deep cycle battery. The battery send power to the AC converter (black) then onto the power box with a 20 amp circuit and two normal outlets.
This system is providing all of our electrical needs and even absorbs the suns energy on cloudy days.
