 Hi  folks,
 Have  a  tank  that  has  the  following  equipment  running  24x7
 
 1.  2  external  Eheim  filters  (2215,  2217)
 2.  A  Jager  heater  300W.
 3.  Tubelights  and  leds
 
 
 My  question:
 Is  anyone  out  there  running  some/all  of  their  tank  equipment  on  solar  panels?  Any  ideas  how  we  can  do  that?  I  know  i  will  have  to  really  do  a  cost  benefit  analysis  before  i  figure  out  if  it  is  a  viable  solution,  but  still  wanted  to  understand  if  anyone  has  any  prior   experience  with  using  solar  panels  (If  not  for  tank  use,  any  other  use)  and  if  they  have  done  any  DIY  kind  of  projects  with  it?
 
 Thanks,

 Well  I  have  not  done  anything  myself.  But  there  are  lots  of  solar  lamps  and  stuff  available  on  the  market,  I  guess  you  can  use  them.  We  are  currently  making  our  new  house  and  were  quoted  with  12L  a  1MW  unit.

 Ashwin,
 Thanks  a  lot  for  your  info.  1  MW?  Are  you  guys  planning  on  running  most  of  your  electric  points  on  solar?  Not  sure  if  I  will  need  to  the  same  size/capacity  to  run  the  filter  and  heater.  Of  course,  this  is  my  view  with  no  real  calculations  on  paper.  I  shall  work  out  the  details  and  maybe  do  some  more  reading  to  understand  how  much  power  would  i  really  need.  Maybe  I  could  run  the  equipment  on  solar  power  during  night  time,  cutting  the  requirement  in  half.  Again  more  or  less  speculative  thinking  with  no  real  data  to  back  it  up.
 
 Thanks  again!

 We  are  planning  to  go  off  the  grid,  so  all  of  the  house  is  on  non  conventional  sources.  Anyway,  ideally  you  should  use  the  solar  cells  to  charge  the  batteries  of  an  inverter,  which  will  then  be  used  to  run  your  systems.  I  had  come  across  this  some  time  back  on  ebay,  this  should  give  you  a  number  to  look  at   Chuckle

 1  MW  or  1000  watt?  Please  Check  your  calculation.  I  had  recenty  installed  120  watt  solar  system  to  run  led  lights  (in  case  of  MSEB  power  failure)  This  cost  me  30K.  All  equipments  used  are  branded  &  I  got  them  at  dealer  price.  I  never  got  output  more  than  60  watt.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Ajay

 Yea,  I  am  pretty  sure  it  was  1MW.  Still,  my  dads  into  this  not  me.  And  I  guess  the  link  I  posted  in  my  previous  post  is  similar  to  what  you  have  installed.

 @  Yajur,  kv  is  voltage  &  MW  is  power.   @  ashwin,  1MW  is  100000  Watt  &  Nagpur  peak  requirement  is  about  300  MW,  consult  your  dad  before  posting.

 Maybe  we  are  not  getting  it,  but  the  1MW  unit  was  for  12L.

 It's  instantaneous  connected  load  if  you  multiply  it  by  no  of  hours  then  you  will  get  actual  consumption  i.e.  Mwh

 @ashwin
 
 interesting!  never  heard  of  anyone  cyber-savvy  using  solar  power  throughout  his  house!  that  will  be  a  first.  u  must  be  pretty  'unconventional'  yourselves  to  go  for  such  a  thing!   Chuckle  
 
 good  good.  let  us  know  when  u  manage  it  .
