Renewable Energy - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals

Solar energy is the output from our sun though not strictly correct it is sufficient for most purposes to say it is the sun's energy that reaches Earth. It includes a wide spectrum of different frequencies/temperatures of light and energy and various types of particle and electromagnetic radiation, a significant proportion of much of the content is deflected by the Earth's magnetic field and various layers of the atmosphere.

The solar energy reaching the Earth's surface is reckoned to average the warming equivalent of 3kW/hr per square metre.

Photovoltaic (PV) is a process that converts the Sun's heat/light into electricity and should not be confused with the Solar/thermal systems designed to use the sun's heat/light radiation to heat water. Mostly this is used for domestic purposes but some large installations exist where large mirrors concentrate light onto a solar panel with enough heat to produce sufficient steam to drive a turbine/generator to produce electricity.

Photosynthesis, incidentally, is the method plants use to convert atmospheric CO2 into growth using energy from the sun.

First thing, disconnect AC and DC power. You can leave the LP attached but go ahead and close the valve for now.

Plug in AC only and let it boot up. If the fridge does not automatically, press the power button to turn it on. The refrigerator should start working. Let it run for a while to make sure it does get cold. Once you confirm it does work you can either unplug the fridge or just open the breaker in the fuse panel.

Before you reconnect the DC wires, you need to check the power coming in. Most camper units will have wiring that will have color on one side and white on the other. The color wire will be your 12VDC, white is neutral return. Once verified, pull out the fuse for the power to the fridge to isolate the DC voltage. Check with the manual for the fridge, the positive input should be marked or identified in some manner. Open the valve to let LP back into the lines and wait a few minutes. Plug the fuse back in. If the fridge does not turn on automatically, press the power button to turn it on.

With the DC power on and no AC detected, the display should display CHECK. Let the fridge run for a bit to make sure it cools. Once you know it is working, the breaker for the AC can be closed to turn on the AC power to the fridge. Press the MODE button until AUTO displays displays.

Let it get cold and resume normal operations.

With so few panels, you could use microinverters in parallel instead of series, such as from Enphase

But if you want to stick with series, then a 1.2 kw string inverter is what to look for. Perhaps something like these
