Re: Solar power ~ no more running the engine

yikes, generator bikes and solar panels?

For a newbies prospective, I'm not sure I see return on purchasing things like that. If you had 3-4 marine batterys, and say a 20 hp yamar diesel, how long would it really take at idle to charge the batteries? And how much fuel would you really burn doing it?
