Off the Grid Tuesday: Solar Panel!

We may have not made it out to Moonraker more than once yet, but we have made some purchases…Including:


It’s 100 watts, 12 volts. We bought it from Solar Cynergy (on eBay) for $155, with $20 shipping. It will power our netbook (so I can do my blogging!), or the Bean’s DVD player. And the fridge, of course! It needs a charge controller, which can be found for $16. We could also wire it directly to the battery, but we would run the risk of overcharging it, so we won’t.
