How to Find the Right Solar Kit
To determine the size of the solar kit you need, you will need to consider the volts, amps, and amp-hours of the system.
Looking for a Solar Kit, but not sure what you need? First, you need to determine the voltage of the system. The voltage of the solar panels, battery bank, and load (appliances and devices that will be powered by the solar system) must be compatible. For example, if you have a 12V battery bank and you want to power a device that requires 120V, you will need a power inverter to convert the 12V DC power from the battery bank to 120V AC power for the device.
Next, you will need to determine the current, or amperage, of the system. The current is the amount of electricity flowing through the system at a given moment. The size of the solar panels, battery bank, and other components of the system will need to be able to handle the current required by the load.
Finally, you will need to consider the amp-hours of the system. The amp-hours represent the amount of energy that can be stored in the battery bank and are important for determining how long the system can power the load without the need for additional charging.
To determine the size of the solar kit you need, you will need to consider the power requirements of the load (in watts), the average daily sun exposure at the installation location, and the desired autonomy of the system (how many days you want the system to be able to operate without needing additional charging). There are online calculators and tools that can help you determine the size of the solar kit you need based on these factors.
