    Get off 12Vdc , Move up to 24Vdc MIN. Easy cuz many rigs are 24Vdc , it's a North American standard , Eleswhere , Europe is 48 Vdc on some new Volvo AB's Rigs ..
    MATH is needed to see the difference of the harvest of watts.
    Also we have PWM drop down units at 98% to scale down over BUCK of going up in power (@35% ) ..

    Dude who wrote that is lost in 1980 still

    I often find myself in agreement with Mr. Sloth. But, I am still a believer small systems, under 1000 watts, should run 12vdc, next system range of 1000 to 2000 watts, at 24vdc, and everything over 2,000 watts, at 48vdc.

    Of course, I am pretty sure he is involved in solar arrays / systems a heck of a lot more frequently than I am. I mainly build my own systems here. Well, that is, until I get all the parts to build donor systems I am putting together, for 10 Khmer families here. Still, they will all be 12vdc, as well. 100 watts systems.
