Post solar panels

I found good site for research on panels, solarpanels .com surf around in the site a 85watt panel will do a lot of work also think about 24volt as a better way to go.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Possibly pink, possibly jelly. But anyhoo.... Figure 6 hrs per day of realistic generating insolation, allow for panel derating so an 85 W panel is really 100W, that's still only 0.6 kWh/day, or barely enuf to run a very efficient dorm-sized fridge. Need two at least. Always glad to learn of new suppliers, esp. cut-price ones.

Except's web site sucks rocks. I can't even bring up models, specs, or prices. Get all kinds of security certificate warnings. Get buttons for Real Goods and dating services. But no solar info. Gods preserve us from HTML idjits.

BTW: anyone who finds killer PV deals online -- *get a hard quote on shipping.* You may find a nasty $400 surprise tagged onto your panels, independent of their weight or wattage.
