The 20 Watt Solar Energy Kit is designed as an educational classroom and homeschooling kit. This DIY solar energy kit is perfect as a solar power demonstration. One of the important aspects of science education is learning how to measure results. The digital meters give students the opportunity to accomplish this by measuring voltage, current, amp-hours and more.
The digital meter will give you the real-time voltage and current of your system. Watch the voltage increase when the battery is charging. Meter tells you how many amp-hours you have generated during the day of sun. Watch it go down when you are powering devices (or charging smartphones etc.).
Included in the Kit
Not Included in the Kit
A battery – We recommend using an 18AH Sealed battery or a 32AH sealed battery. You can also use a 12V Deep cycle marine battery purchased locally, but we recommend one of our sealed batteries if you are locating the battery inside a classroom.
You can mount the digital meters and 12V outlet on a piece of plywood and label each meter. Or use a wooden crate, or plastic cooler. Just keep the wires and battery in “the back” and have the meters and outlets available to see and use. Be creative! Optional: Wall/Pole mounting hardware, 12V DC 15W CFL Bulb (to compare power usage to LED bulb).
