Good Sunshine

We are starting to get some impressive solar electric production. Since the sailing season starts in the winter, the sun is a bit low on the horizon early on. Now that we are getting into spring, we are getting better solar generation. We have 520 watts of panels. We just had two days in a row with over 400 watts max power. Sunny blue skies! Happy batteries!
