So now I generally
don't bother hooking
up to shore power!
Thanks for all the help in planning my solar project for my boat. The two 170W flexible panels fit well on my Bimini and now I generally don't bother hooking up to shore power. Although I haven’t had any long trips since my installation I have done a few day trips. And even with fridge, radio, plotters, autopilot and occasional radar it seems that these panels are keeping up with my usage. I did add some stiffener material to the back of the panels and attached the panels with zippers and they have survived a few 30 knot days and one night with winds gusting well over 55 knots. No damage at all and no signs of flexing problems.
The advice and service has been great. Thanks again.

It made my project
work, thank you
Lyall and Katie are so knowledgeable. I tried this project with a lesser quality panel and the project failed because it wasn't efficient enough. The SunPower® Maxeon Gen III cells are compact and simply kick out more Volts/Current than all the others on the market today. And by using the SunPower® panel, everything was smooth and efficient. I love my new 170W 29V 5.83A panel!! It made my project work. Thanks Lyall for all your knowledge in making this work.
