Solar Panels Are In!

As of September 21st 2009 the Photovoltaic Battery charging System has been operational. And today, even with no direct sun from heavy overcast skies most of the day we were still getting 13 Volts steadily "trickle charging" the battery. Eventually we will have the ability to measure more precisely how much power the Panels are generating for us including amperage and battery level indicators. For now the 7 Amp Charge Controler provides us with a 2 LED "Charged/Charging" readout which is useful at a glance.
