Evergreen Solar makes a 200 watt panel (model ES-A-200). In real world conditions these panels should kick out 150 watts each. So to get 1,000 watts, you would need no fewer than 7 panels to do the job. Currently, this panel goes for about $1,000 each so your lookng at $7,000 just for the panels. You will also need a charge controller, inverter, batteries (if desired), mounting hardware, etc.

you use same the amount of power for the wash selection because the motor uses the same amount of power
you may save power by selecting shorter wash times because the motor is not running for as long
a 1kw motor uses 1kw of power per hour but if used for half an hour still uses the 1 kw of power but only for a 1/2 hour so the cost of the power used will be less
If you hook it up correctly and the Voltages match... yes.
As for how long... THAT depends on a number of Factors... How much sun, What quality is the Solar Panel, Placement of the Panel.. the goes on and on... But you CAN charge a Battery...I charged a Battery for quite some time using a Large Solar array.... We were Camping an using the Battery for Lights Radio and Fridges.... So it CAN be done
Solar panels are typically rated at .3 volts per cell. These cells are connected in series until they add up to 12 volts,24 volts or 36 volts depending on the solar system. The more cells you have the higher the charge rate of the batteries connected to the system. The DC voltage from the cells are used to charge the batteries then the voltage from the batteries is used to drive a DC to AC- convertor which is the power used by your home. The more cells connected the quicker it will charge the batteries and the more batteries connected the more power the solar system can provide.
You are correct they do lose the output over time. .Not knowing the specific type or brand of the panels the following is a general over all reply.
The manufacturer will give the specific amounts the panels will lose their efficiency. Newer panels I believe will 2-4% the first year then something like 1% per year. Newer panels usually have a life of 20 years. I am not sure about the smaller panels you have but I would guess they may be a little faster especially if your putting them up and down constaly.
Also make sure you clean them, that will make a very substantial difference especially since they are smaller in size and I am sure you know that shade on ANY PART of the panel may eliminate total sections of the panel producing power, depending on the type of [panels you have. Also check for scratches where you might be able to light through the panels as that may affect the output.
I would suggest a google search for manufacturer and model # and then review the spec sheets for the item. That is were you would find the information.If you don't and the company is still in business send them an email and they will let you know.
It should be set to the Heat Pump's "Balance Point". The Balance Point is where the heat pump is generating (extracting) 1kW of heat for every 1kW of electricity. Typically, the Balance Point is in the lower 30's to the middle 20's depending on how efficient your system is. Just to mention, my SEEC 16 system is set to 25 deg.
Those markings, BTW, are 20 deg and 40 deg, not 2 and 4.
Based on your post/description, I would suggest that: 1. There is no need to install a diode from the boat motor alternator since most current design used electronic regulators with built-in diodes. The output of the alternator therefore could go straight to the battery or a switch (*selecting battery 1 or 2); 2. It would probably be safer that you would install a diode after a portable generator since some design do not need/use internal rectification but are connected straight to the windings/coil; 3. There is no need to install diode after each solar panel.
To my understanding the Plasmatronics have built-in in-line diodes to its inputs/outputs (unless otherwise required such as with the "Catch Diode protection" across the load). Additionally, unlike in some other system, a PL-20 would require that the negatives not be tied to a common ground. The PL-20 is relatively a straight forward connection (it's the programming that is a challenge).
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
