Energy&Power(3/6)

Hello! This video breaks down energy and power, showing you how to calculate how many panels you'll need to power your appliances. 


How to Calculate: 

Watts (W) = measurement of power 

Energy = Watts x Hours = Watt-hours (Wh) 


Example: 

65W (TV) x 10 hours (Time Usage) = 650Wh 

100W (Panel) x 5 (Peak Hours) = 500Wh 


650Wh/500Wh = 1.3 Panels; round that to 2 Panels. 

Thus, to run a 65W TV for 10 hours, you'd need 200W of solar panels.
