I went thru BRJ Solutions here in seattle. His prices matched the on line
prices I could find. Brian (owner) helped me design my system, helped
touble shoot a bad controllern and had a replacemect withun a few days.
Pegasus now is equipped with 2 140watt Solara rigid panels, 2 Gensun mppt
controllers, and a monitor. The panels weigh 20 lbs each and are rated at
22% efficiency. Being a live aboard my battery charger was turned off and
my batteries were fully charged by 1pm. Careful monitoring I could still be
off grid, but lazyness has prevailed.
