There's a thread here, "Solar Panel Upgrades" where I posted my upgrade to (3) 100W panels, and 440 amp hours of battery backup. I upgraded the inverter to a 2000 watt pure sine Magnum and I can run everything except the A/C. Even cold nights, we keep the heater going. So much less hassle IMHO. Steve.

Yes, however only front to back or back to front. Based on the placement, only two at a time, because of shadowing. Here is a picture while I was detailing the AIClick image for larger version
