mark, Im in La Rochelle now and believe I can buy sunpower 345W panels here, 650 each HT, or 335W 580 each HT. Ill confirm when 'IF' I hear back from the company.
Im thinking of putting 3 on the davits
although its a little bigger than id prefer. Probably 3 of the smaller 250W ppanels would be enough , or maybe change one for a 335 and use the victron 70A controller
Other option is a controller for each panel, not too sure how that handles things like equalization
though. Last cat we had 3/180w 24V panels into a morningstar 60A controller into 12V system, but I dont recall
ever seeing more than 30A going into the batteries, although the panels should have been putting in 3x180 / 12 = 45 A...
any ideas on individual controllers for each panel, is that simple enough at the battery
end? I guess you disable equalization
on 2 of the controllers? or do they have manual equalization modes so you can just press a button...
