If you are looking at buying 200-watt solar panels, you should know what the 200-watt solar panel output per day is. This 200-watt monocrystalline solar panel produces less electricity than most residential panel models, but it is the perfect choice for camping, a small cabin, or an RV. This means that you need to be aware of how much power you will be using with a 200-watt solar panel. First of all, wattage indicates the amount of electricity that is being generated by your solar panels. A 200-watt solar panel will produce an output of 200 watts under ideal conditions, such as a summer afternoon under a clear, blue sky. A 200W solar panel produces its highest power output between 11 AM and 3 PM. A 200-watt solar panel can produce 600Wh of solar energy per day. This is far below the amount of energy required for most family households.
Solar Energy Output Formula
Calculate your solar panel's output, use the following formula:
- Average hours of sunlight × solar panel watts x 75% = daily watt-hours
- We refer to 75% efficiency to account for the above-mentioned variables.
- As an example, you live in an area that experiences, on average, about 4 hours of sunlight. Your panel has a 200-watt rating.
The calculation is as follows:
4 hours x 200 watts x 0.75 = 600 daily watt-hours
Perfect for Use in a Range of Applications
Relax, enjoy a coffee with toast, keep your beers cold in your portable fridge, or distract the kids with charged devices by using a reliable solar panel. Keep your kit charged, and you will never get stuck in a power blackout again! This 200W Folding Solar Mat is perfect for those who want solar battery charging and more functionality from your solar panel when away camping.
Tips for Using Your Ardent 200W Folding Solar Panel
Do not bend these 200W solar panel cells. While in use, keep your solar blanket & controller in a ventilated area and away from any corrosive liquids. Keep the solar blanket and controller clean at all times, and regularly check connectors to ensure they're free of grit before plugging them in. Do not scratch the solar blanket with sharp objects. Do not use the solar blanket to charge nonrechargeable batteries. Doing so may result in harm to the user or damage to the solar blanket and controller. Do not put corrosive substances on this solar panel. Ensure shade from buildings, trees and other objects does not block sunlight while using the panels. Ensure nothing sharp or heavy could potentially break or damage the solar blanket during transport or storage. This product is not to be used by children.
