Re: [hreg] PV panels
- Kim,If your pump is a 12VDC at 4 Amp that is a 48 Watt DC pump. If you want to just pump water while the Sun is shining then a 55 or 60 Watt single crystal or polycrystalline panel should work just fine.If you want 24 hour operation you will need an array of three 75 Watt panels, a controller and battery back up.I can be more specific if you need a quote to price these items.Oh, and Claude.

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I would need in the way of
a PV panel to run a 12v 4 amp pump in daylight hours. What would be
needed to run it all the time? This is one of the questions I had
prepared for the last meeting that Allison messed up.

Just let me know if you need any help with your pump system.
You can get a good combo rig from AEE.
Or, a simple bilge pump will work for a fountain on a limited basis.
You should add a linear current booster to any high quality operation.
