Solar Power System

This instructable will show you everything you need to put together a pretty good sized electric solar panel system. Things you will need.

Solar panels

Charge controller

Battery charger

2 AWG cable

At least one 12 Volt marine deep cycle battery

Mechanical lugs

1 power inverter

1 Rubbermaid tote or other container

1 battery charger


Cable cutters

Red electrical tape



Preparing the batteries.


The first thing you want to do is charge your batteries with a charger. This will insure they are charged to capacity and ready to go at set up. I purchased my batteries new and were only at about 60%.

While the batteries are charging, you can set up the solar panels and get them wired up and ready to go.

Connecting the charge controller and inverter to the batteries.

Next we connect the charge controller and the inverter to the batteries. You will want to make sure the inverter is turned off and the charge controller is not connected to the solar panels yet.
