Question

15W panel used with Eliminator 800 pack

Do I need to use a charge controller with this 15w panel if I am charging my Eliminator 800 battery pack through the AC charging plug which is regulated, and "plug in and forget"?

Solar electric is not the answer to heating. To give you an idea, this panel here produces 15 watts, and a typical electric heater uses 1500 watts. And you need some batteries to store this power, and probably an inverter.

Your best bet to avoid using hydro is to line the greenhouse with as much stuff to attract the sun, ie, black barrels full of water, dark colored stones (both retain heat well, and reduce how quickly your greenhouse gets too hot).

Invariably you will need to heat using some sort of alternate arrangement, unless you have a massively oversized storage system (wether it be electric or water). Instead of an oversized system you're better off hooking a solar electric system to the grid, at least when you're not using the power it will be fed back to the grid for a credit. Unfortunately this is work for a pro.

Yes, the panels can be hooked up to two 6V batteries wired in serial. The voltage where the panel is connected should measure 12 volts.

I have used it for non-serviced campsites and it will definitely help—ultimately, it will depend upon how much sun you get and how much power you are drawing from the battery. If you are only using the battery to run camper lights, etc., you should be fine. It won’t however generate enough to power to recharge your battery for a 12V fridge, or running anything with a motor for long periods of time. Be sure to get a charge controller—it does put out significant voltage in full mid-day sun.

Question

One panel enough to run a 12V cooler?

I have a Mobicool A40 DC/AC/Gas cooler which I use during summer. Power consumption @ 12V = 290 BTU/hr, and Current consumption = 7.5 A Could I have enough power to run the cooler with the 15 W solar panel?

The 15W panel cannot directly run a cooler with 7.5 amps current consumption.

You will need a 12V deep cycle battery. In order to determine the size and number of panels needed, we would need to know the approximate running time of the cooler per day (total hours).

Question

Will this panel keep an 8D heavy equipment battery fully charged when not in use

I use an 8D deep cycle battery for my commercial fishing boat, and wish to keep the full charge maintained during the winter months when it is not in use. Will the 1 amp be powerful enough to keep my battery fully charged during the winter?

The 15W panel should maintain this battery despite its large size. Make sure to leave the battery with a charge of no less than 11V.

what solar equipment do I need

For this application, you must be able to generate as much power as it's being consummed. In this case 250 Watts, for 24 hours. For example: 250 Watts x 24 hours = 6000 Watt-hours. In order to generate 6000 Watt-hours in 6-7 hours of sun, a solar array of at least 1000W total must be used.

Such a system would consist of a dozen Blue Planet 85W Solar Panels, 2 deep cycle 12V batteries of at least 100 Amp-Hours and a couple of 50 Amp charge controllers.

It is possible, but keep in mind that because of the artificial light conditions, you will need to install the panel as close as possible to the light source. Approximately 4 to 5 feet.
