Build a solar panel rover. via Instructables

If you would like to build a 8.64 kWh Solar Panel Rover, then this is the instructable for you! Operating descriptions will also be included in this instructable as well as brief assemblage directions. Originally this solar panel rover was made to bring electricity to Pomona College’s Organic Farm which did not have access to the grid. Now the rover is used to power a large variety of outdoor events on the campus.

The rover features three solar panels, for a total of 200 W, that are wired in parallel that are connected to a power controller that then charges six interstate batteries. The batteries are wired in series and are wired to a 1000W, 12V inverter with two electrical outlets. Between the batteries and the inverter is a fuse.

This Solar Panel Rover includes:

4 Solar panels, 24 V and 8A each
6 12 V, 120 amp Interstate batteries
1000 W inverter
Outback systems Charge Controller
Two wheeled trailer with metal frame

Product List:

solar panels
31-AGM7 interstate batteries
Sine Wave 1000W battery inverter
Battery to Inverter fuse
Charge Controller
Wires: Car battery cables! With gauge ends for connecting to charge controller and interstate batteries.Car battery cables for wiring
