    24 volt solar panels MADE IN USA

    Ok I found a couple companies that make solar panels flexible and all ranges of wattage. The only problem is they all claim a 24volt output. Can this be used on a 12 volt system? Ive never used these before and a peelable self adhesive 100 watt on top of the RTT would be perfect.

    Found a 5" crack on underside of solar panel... Problem?

    I can just barely catch a fingernail on it and it doesn't appear to cut through any of the black "traces" - it runs mostly between two cells - but it's so hard to tell. I'm wondering what those more learned than I think I should do about this. I don't know how long it's been there and I...

    Solar Panel that fits between Roof Ribs

    Does anyone know of a solar panel that will fit between the roof ribs. The ribs have a 24 cm space between them. Basically I am looking for a panel that is less than 24 cm wide and maybe 50 or 75 long. Everything I find on the internet is square and a 24 cm square panel is of little point.
