I have three 20-watt solar panels (Sunforce). The box claims to produce 2,940 watts (196 amps) per week (60 watts x 7 hours x 7 days). So this assumes one gets seven hours of optimal light. I would like to use this to power a chest freezer. I am just curious if A) this will power a chest freezer and B) how big can I go?
<16 cu ft
Will these three panels power up a chest freezer that needs nearly 200 KWH/Year?
I assume that I am producing 164.64 KWH/Year (2940 x 56), which means no or find a chest freezer the size of your chest. Someone tell me my math is incorrect, please. I did purchase two sets of these panels as the hope was one for the freezer, the other for the wofati. I guess I'll have to combine the two sets into one somehow.
