Tell us about your solar
1. Can anyone share any quantitative documentation
on the actual output they’ve realized (over time) from their Solar Power Installation
2. Are you (generally) satisfied or disappointed in your Solar Power Installation
3. Is your Solar Power Installation worth the:
(a) cost ?
(b) bother (installation, obstruction, space & constant adjustment/or not) ?
4. What are the key elements of your installation that have improved (or reduced) your overall satisfaction ?
I’ve never operated a Photo-Voltaic Solar Array on my own boat
, so my “knowledge” (ignorance ?) is mostly theoretical (& installation).
Over the years, I’ve conducted informal polling, on cruisers’ satisfaction regarding their Solar installation - but none of them had accurate instrumentation - so their judgments were mostly subjective opinions - which varied from “disappointed” to “ecstatic”.
