Solar panels for bike
Woo woo! My custom-made solar panels arrived today. These modules are super light weight, making them the perfect choice for my overhead solar array. I’ll get busy building a lightweight but sturdy aluminum frame for them. I plan to mount them in tandem just above my head on my bike. Since the dimensions match the length of the bike, they’ll have a dual duty – they’ll help power my electric bike, plus provide shade and some protection against the elements.
I’ll wire the two 40 volt modules in series to get 80 volts, which is what I need to charge 48 volt batteries.
