we had our solar oanels, 3 innumber and rated at 3 amps or more each on the biminy. we had a air-X landlubber wind genny on th etransom/. we had zero shading of the solar panels
. the solar worked great in daylight and the wind worked well while sailing at night, even when we were nearly down wind-- the head
of the unit faces the wind even whenye are going down wind...kinda like when yer at anchor
and have the wind blowing thru the boat-- it faces the wind..LOL... what a concept-- wwe had no problem after we d]added the wind genny in keeping our batts up with the demand placed on htem. and we used high draw laptops.
now.granted we only did this for a year.....but i dont see any problem with having both air and sun power. there is ALWAYS wind whenye are sailing. have fun. just telling what worked for us for a year. wasnt even marine
rated (LOL) wind genny.\
ther ear emany who will say what is what-- but when it comes to whAT works-- YOU HAVE TO TRY YOUR OWN WAY. gooodluck. i love sun and wind. i may like water
later-- but i dont need that yet, i have over 16 amps per hour i can hook into from sun and i will have a homemade wind genny once i find the right blades and figure out where to place it...my boat hs a seaview tv antenna
which is disposable, and i can place the wind genny there--is high up above the radar
dome on my mizzenmast....
