If you decide to use batteries, keep in mind that they will have to be maintained, and then replaced after a certain number of years. The PV modules should last 20 years or more, but batteries just don't have that kind of useful life. Batteries in PV systems can also be very dangerous because of the energy they store and the acidic electrolytes they contain, so you'll need a well-ventilated, non-metallic enclosure for them.
Hmmm that gives me an idea for 250 hamster wheels connected in parallel . . . think of the power!
Does anyone know how i can get a 12volt Solar panel to power a 12volt inverter, i have briefley tried and had no such luck. the inverter runs of the electronic cigarettes lighter in a car so is obv battery powered, which makes it DC, is a solar panel AC and therefore why it doesnt work???
