31.64 Watts

Just measured the output of our 100W peak solar pv panel. It’s 12:33pm, very sunny and we’re 37° North. Seeing 2.26Amps at 14V, nearly 32Watts! Maybe we’ll see the full 100Watts in southern Italy? :)


P.S. I later realised, that despite having a degree in physics, I was measuring the solar output incorrectly. I’d got the multi-meter probes touched onto both the panel inputs on the voltage controller (in parallel), when I should have undone one of the inputs and connected the meter in series. Doh!
