I'm shutting down the boat for the season in Mexico
. The dry storage
yard in San Carlos
does not have electricity.
I am planning to cover one of my two 140w panels
with a bit of plywood
, tied down tightly, but leave the other uncovered to keep the batteries topped up.
My charge controller is a Blue Sky Energy "Solar Boost 3024i" - I am worried about what it will be doing with the excess current
once the batteries are fully charged! Nothing in the manual mentions any way to hook up a dump circuit like a fan or a water
Is this actually even something you have to worry about with solar
? I know you need one with a wind generator
, but how does solar
handle excess current
