1530 watt new solar panels on order

Here are the actual panels I ordered 


  1. 1530 Watts!!! That's just crazy... I see visions of a mad scientist with his powerful Tesla Coil inside his Faraday Cage Over The Top Cargo Trailer :)

  2. Pssssssssst don't tell anybody my plans :-))

    I was told today panels will not ship till the 16th this month

  3. That's a TON of solar power! Cool stuff. For most people out there, it's not doable due to the sheer size of the panels but for a large cargo trailer or gi-normous RV, it's certain doable!

    How many hours a day do you run the solar array? Do you have to shut it down at night to preserve the battery?


  4. Well Brad

    Right now without the ac I only use 400- 500+ watts per day, on a hot day with out the a/c 1000+ watts, normally by 8:30 - 9 am the battery's are getting charged on FLOAT already.... almost all the power during the day comes directly from the charge controller.
    Im just mostly still testing & getting used to the system for whenever I may hit the road ?

    The good thing about killer panels is that I even get 200+ watts during the rain & during very cloudy overcast conditions ...that really surprised me.

    On your panel you should be getting maybe 30- 40-50 watts under those conditions ??

    Maybe I can sell excess solar to others on the road , like $2 @ KW :-)

  5. Who to choose to carry out your solar panel installation can be a difficult question.  It's such a technical subject, which let's face it, goes beyond most people's knowledge and is rather daunting.  But good solar panel installation companies should be able to help you cut through the jargon and make things clear.

  6. Well,that is a great power production,that much.Interesting.The plans for the home solarplease.

  7. I'm about to purchase some commercial/residential sized panels as well. I think I have the room needed on my 24' class C RV. I'm looking to your setup for guidance. I've done a lot of research and there is so much misinformation out there it's a really daunting process. I thought I could get a TriStar charging controller, but now I"m questioning whether I need the 800$ one that you have. please help!

  8. There's a chance you are eligible for a new government sponsored solar program.
