Taking a single semitrailer as the load you have approximately 12.5m long by 2.5m wide of top surface, or 31.25m². With 20% efficient panels you might get as much as 6kW from the semitrailer, or 6kWh every 100km/60 miles on the highway (which is also where good solar access is most likely). It's tricky to find energy consumption figures for heavy electric ...

the short answer to your question is yes, that type of inverter does exist, they are very rare. The Delta model H6 (Thailand) is one example. A battery less grid tie inverter that is also advertised as a backup inverter for power outages, up to its full rated 6kw output, provided the solar array is sized for the load and in direct sun, no clouds. This unit ...

What about a set of "rabbit ears" from an old TV or TV antenna? With two sets you should be able to use them to prop the panel, depending on how heavy it is and how substantial the antennas are. They typically have a screw-in base so you could remove them from their current mount and rig something up. Given how common these once were, you should be ...

Energy payback in 1-6 years Taking manufacturing variables into account basically gives you a range of time from 1.25 - 6.5 years based on 5 sunny days out of seven and an average of 6-8 hours of sun per day. But in reality none of this matters, here’s why... Fossil fuels never reach energy payback Electricity as a commodity has been in use for over a ...

If the "embodied energy" of photo-voltaic tech is ~585kWh/m^2 and it generates ~0.2 kW/m^2 then; the answer to the question seems to be that the photo-voltaic tech will need to run for: ~(585kWh/m^2)/(0.2kW/m^2) hours = 2925 hours to generate it's embodied energy; yes ?
