45 Watt Solar Panel Kit

45 Watt Solar Panel Kit


If you are looking to get started into using clean renewable solar energy, but you are not sure where to start, I would recommend that you buy a 45 watt solar panel kit from Harbor Freight.  (I am not being paid by them or endorsed by Harbor Freight to write about this product, but I am recommending it because I have used it and still use it). 

So why do I recommend that you go out and buy this kit?  Because it makes it easy to get started learning and using solar panels.  If you have a Harbor Freight location near you and you can check this solar panel kit out in person, you will see that it is pretty durable, easy to set-up, and it can be expanded to provide you with more power if you need it in the future.  The cost also is not bad – roughly $250 if you pick it up in store, a little more if you have it shipped to you. 

With this kit, setup is a breeze, and you can be up and running in about 30 minutes.  This solar panel kit included three 15 watt solar panels that you can string together to get 45 watts, two DC florescent lights, a power converter, a few cords for connecting everything up, and an aluminum frame to mount the panels.

I use this at one of my rental properties to light some exterior lights on a garage, and I am even thinking about using this kit in conjuction with another kit to power the lights of the entire upper unit of my duplex.  I plan on posting some pictures and some video about how to set this thing up and use it in a few weeks as of this posting.

You will need to buy a 12 volt deep-cycle battery and a 300 or 700 watt power inverter (I recommend at least a 700 watt power inverter to run lights and a television and computer).
