What can I power with a 100W solar panel?

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, and some ideas of 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.

  1. This video needs to be seen BY ALL 5th and 6th Graders in America and a project of connecting a solar panel or 4 to MAKE US ALL SEE the Need for MATH. I too didn't pay much need t o math as a kid because thought I would NEVER Need this…my youthful error????????????????????????

  2. Are you kidding me???? Ha.. guess I need five or six times more panels and batteries than I originally thought …. just to be safe. LOL

  3. so i bought a solar panel for experimenting with and its a 12v 100w solar panel ,
    but for my experiment i only need 2v to 3v at 4 amps.
    how do you think i should go about that? hole bunch of resistors?
