#5 Increase U.S. energy self-reliance

Solar Panel And Battery Time Charge Question?
Hello Guys. I Put Up A Simple Setup For Just Emergencies And Low Loads. My Specs On The Solar Panel Are:
Max Power = 85W
Max Power Voltage 17.4
Max Power Current 4.91
Open Circuit Voltage 21.8
Short Circuit Current 5.29
Max System Voltage 1000
Im Using A Kirklan Deep Cycle Marine Battery 115 Amp Hour And A Cheap Sunforce 7Amp Charge Controller 7A Max/14.2V/13V
My Question Is...Me Being A Non Connoisseur , How Long Will My Solar Panel Take To Charge My Battery? I Know That I Wont Be Sucking It To 50% And My Only Load There Would Be A Stand Alone Fan 50 Watts That I Intent To Load Whenever The Power Goes Off For About 6 Hours. I Live In Puerto Rico , My Solar Panel Is Oriented South, Its A Movable Unit On A Dolly, Like The Ones In Diy On Youtube. And We Have Full Sun All Year Long.
I Thank You And Appreciate Any Help On This Matter, Cause I Know Nothing About It, I Just Know Is Better Than Buying A Noisy Generator.
Lead acid batteries are 50% efficient at charging and 92% efficient on discharging. However you don't want to deep discharge a lead acid battery and you don't want to overcharge a lead acid battery. There are three stages to charging a lead acid battery, a bulk charge, a topping charge and a float charge. The bulk charge is current limited ( the 7 A max ), the topping charge which is your 14.2 V and the float charge which is your 13 V. However a conservatively designed system would only use half the capacity of your battery in a cycle and would assume charging to 80% of charge. That would be charging the battery from 862.5 AH to 920 AH, a difference of 57.5 AH. At 12 V, that's 690 WH, however the batteries are only 50% efficient at charging so you'll need 1,380 WH to charge that 690 WH. You said you had six hours of usable Sunshine and your panel is rated at 85 W, well 85 W * 6 = 510 WH so you only have enough to charge 15% of your battery in a day.

How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work?
I Am Doing A Research Project, And I Need Help. How Do Solar Powered Calculators Work? How Its Used, Who Invented It, What Year. And Such. Please? Thanks.
all I can help with is how it works. They have solar panels on them that transfer sunlight into energy and then that energy powers the calculator just like batteries would. If I had more time, I'd be happy to look up the info for you. Try e-mailing me later.
Anybody Install Solar Panels Themselves?
Got A Quote For About $11K Today For Solar Panels To Save Me About $100 A Month On My Electric Bill. I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Had Successfully Bought And Installed Their Own And How It Worked For You?
i have always been interested in it but the storage (batteries) and power grid tie in (to get paid for excess) technicalities made me shy away.
since your getting it installed im sure labor is a huge part of that -ebay has tons of the equipment.
I think wind may be a good home renewable source depending on where you live (cheaper than solar if you got the wind and space)
I would doubly check any goverment offerings - I know they used to and maybe still do offer sizable credits if you are within the bureacratic standards so make sure the installers work with you on that.
good luck -its new - and going to be a hassle to get right but the world needs more like you. willing to pay more now for a better tommorow (and not just $ wise)
you should come out ahead as interest rates and market provides little value on that cash and saving any equipment falure you sound good.
does the price include the batteries for all your produce kwh's? panels and labor aside batteries are the next big one
