Solar System Extension - Solartech Panels?
Has anyone any experience with Solartech solar panels? I want to add a second panel to my existing setup, and Kyocera seems to have abandoned the mid-size panel market. Our 85 watt Kyocera panel fits our FC23FB roof space very nicely between the A/C cowling and the front skylight vent, and does an adequate job of keeping us charged while off-grid (BlueSky MPPT controller and Gp 24 AGM batteries) except when we are heavily shaded. I've found only three manufactures that offer this size. The Solartech closely matches the discontinued Kyocera specs and warranty and comes at a nice price via Amazon.
I plan to add the second 85 watt panel between the A/C cowling and the rear skylight vent (removing the TV antenna which we never use) to maximize separation between the panels so as to improve the odds of catching sun.
I've considered a freestanding remote panel, but really don't want the bother and risk. We're on the move frequently, and rooftop solar is optimum for our usage.
