    Yesss I mean his requirements are ‘Roughly’ 50A / Hr a day, So I ‘Future Proofed’ it a Bit to 60A / Hr a day & They are ‘Kinda’ Tilted But Only as far as it follows the ‘Rake’ of his roof, So probably best to say Flat.
    Amps is (roughly) the speed the electricity is flowing at. The equivalent of miles per hour.

    Amp hours is the total amount of electricity used. The equivalent of miles.

    It isn't 50A / Hr because the / implies division, but it is multiplication: an amp hour is an amp for an hour, just as a mile is one mph for an hour. So the abbreviation is Ah.

    Just got a msg from my mate, Now he left here with a fair charge, Drove for 90min So arrived at his chosen park up for the night with a Good Full Charge (12.70v showing on his meter so 100%) in his batteries. He DIDNT use hardly anything from arriving or the first night (He said he found THAT blinking hard lol lol). When he woke up he still had 12.56v on his meter. So all good for a night if he just sits there lol.
    Anyway YESTERDAY he just used his bits n bobs aboard as usual allowing the daylight to contribute as best it could throughout the day, & he has just taken another reading having just got up & it’s down to 12.40v. So I really do think that he Just uses more than his panels put in.

    As I said earlier I’ve had Solar & Wing Harvesting in the past & LOVE the idea of having as many ways of Harvesting Energy as you can possibly & realistically have, But the system MUST be ‘Matched’ to your needs.
