I've been working with – 115 watt evergreen solar panels, rated 7.62 amps output. I'm starting with one for this experiment to run one motor and alternator setup. I've found low amp DC motors, 1.4 no load amps at 3000 rpm to run an alternator that has a 105 amp output at 12 volts dc to charge my battery bank. I know this set up wouldn't do whole house by itself but Since your output is more than the solar panel output itself you can put together multiple units and still keep your costs down. I've thought of replacing the DC motor with a battery inverter and ac motor setup but would need more panels because the inverter has a 40 amp input amperage. the idea here is to go solar without the high price of huge arrays. would like feed back on this, thanks
And the third law says eventually you'll lose that too (entropy).
