Some useless information

Recommended Posts

Guys

I had some 250W panels break because of the wind and thought it would be interesting to see if they could still generate some power.

I've got a redundant controller and put one of the panels onto that, charging the batteries of a truck.

The highest reading I saw was in the early 50 watts.

It was the wind.

 

I didn't know the Karoo well enough.

 

The panels arrived here on a pallet. Neatly stacked with fancy plastic corner pieces. They were not tied down onto the pallet..

 

The wind took a couple of the panels from the stack and thought of inserting them into the mountings so long.

 

I lost (only) 2.
