Hello everyone, seems like since getting my car I have more and more reasons to post! I'm trying to learn a bit more about solar systems and the lingo that goes with them. Currently I'm using 50-100 or so kWh of power a day on electricity. I would like to get that down to 30-60 a day and so am trying to figure out how many solar panels I would need to lower my over all power usage. The car draws 60kWh over a period of 5-6 hours while charging (I don't need to provide a steady 60 kWh but figure if I just lower my hourly usage through-out the day then over the day it would effectively = 30-60kWh therefore making the car almost free). So short of it is, Curious if I can just get a simple solar system, plug it into my 120v plug in my house, and have it supplement my hourly usage so that over all it's lower, hopefully combining over the day to be half or equal of my car use. So my confusion lays on when I'm reading about solar panels and it says, 250W solar panel, does that mean it provides 250W (.250kW/hour?) so over the course of a day (8 avg hours of sun) it would be app 2kWh of my power mentioned above? or is .250 kW steady stream and then how do you calculate how much it impacts your hourly power usage??? sooo confused. Anyways, just trying to get the usage down.
