That's roughly 2 amps per hour at maximum efficiency, which no solar nor windgen ever seem to deliver max. Are you sure that is sufficient? It would keep your bank topped, with little to no draw, while you are away. If you were discharged even 25%, at realistic output, it would take days of sunlight to fully charge.
