Here's the 'Hybrid Solar/Wind' kit that will supply the majority of power to my two SeaGel Group 4D, 183 Ah batteries onboard JUNESSA.
I ordered the kit from emarine
The only problem with adding more electrical stuff, is drilling more holes in the deck to run all the wiring to the controller and batteries. I also have to find some real-estate down below deck for the monster dual controller... The Airbreeze wind-gen and two 65watt Solar panels (on the stern-rail) and two 35watt solar panels (on the hard dodger) should provide PLENTY of power for my little boat.
I've tried to make the boat as energy efficient by changing all the old energy-hog incandescent lights to efficient LEDs. I decided to stay away from refrigeration and water-maker, that really eat up the power... I do have some energy-hogs onboard: Autopilot, SSB/Pactor, Forced Air Heater and Chartplotter/Radar/sailing instruments so, I'll have to monitor my usage while sailing.
These two LED lights are awesome!!! They use almost zero energy!!
(I SHOULD'VE TAKEN A BEFORE AND AFTER PIC WITH ALL THE LIGHTS ON)
Here's the white and red LED lights showing the energy used... zero and .1amp!
Here's the white and red OLD ENERGY HOG Incandescent lights... .8amps!!
The LAST big purchase for JUNESSA would have to be a windvane for open-ocean cruising. I always cringe when I see how much these simple but vital systems cost... almost 6 BOAT BUCKS!!! OUCH!
