WindyNation Offers Solar Panels for the Do-It-Yourself Market

There’s a wind of change in the energy market thanks to a Southern California design and engineering company.

WindyNation_logoVentura-based WindyNation is busy creating solar and wind products for the end-user do-it-yourself market.

WindyNation takes the trouble and confusion out of adding a solar panel system to a battery bank with their 100% Complete Off-Grid Solar Kits.

WindyNation’s Solar Panel Complete Kits for RVs, boats, and off-grid applications are easy to install by any layman, according to a company news release.

The kits, which are available from 100-watt to 600-watt units, take the trouble and confusion out of adding a solar panel to a battery bank.

The company said it takes the approach that deploying cost-effective, small-scale solar and wind power is not rocket science, according to WindyNation’s Josh Antelman.

Four 100-watt, 12-volt solar panels mounted on the roof of an RV.  Windy Nation's 100-watt solar panels use high efficiency German made Bosch solar cells producing 5.56 amps of current at maximum power point.  Each panel is 40-by-26-by-1.5 inches in size and weighs 18 pounds.

Benefits and features of a kit for RVs, boats, and off-grid applications include producing up to 3,600-watt hours of charge per day depending on kit size.

Two or more panels provide back-up power for critical appliances, like a refrigerator, during a power outage.

The equipment powers devices in remote back country locations, and easily provides power for sheds, light poles, and gates without the need for trenching and laying cable.

Kit will produce an average of 300-600 Watt Hours (Wh) or 25-50 Amp Hours (Ah) of charge per day (depends on sunlight availability)

Worth Pondering…

I find that a great part of the information I have was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.
