What can I power with a 100w Solar Panel

Although 250W solar panels are available, in this video, we explore how to determine:

  • how much power a 100W solar panel will generate?,
  • what size battery and charge controller you need to store the power,
  • what you can power with it and for how long?

We also show you how to do the calculations for yourself to figure out what you could do with off grid solar. Note that at minute 7, we included a deration for the inverter losses. Since we are talking about what size battery is needed to put power in, not taking power out, we don’t need to do that step. The battery can be 5% smaller than we calculated.
