bloodhunter is on a distinguished road
We have a solar array (2 120-watt panels ) and we plan to add a wind generator. The array by itself has met all our electrical needs keeping our 700 AH battery bank fully charged. But admittedly we don't have any really heavy draws, just the refrigerator, lights, fans and electronics. With the wind generator I was assuming that we could handle a watermaker (Spectra 150 running an hour or two a day) as well. But, there seems to be a consensus on this thread that you need a genset tor un a watermaker so what am I missing?
