I would like to learn how to power some house hold appliances from solar energy.
I haven't had any experience with electronics but am eager to spent time reading and experimenting.
I've done a little Googling which has been interesting for a start but has also raised some more questions.
I've seen a wide range of specifications for small solar systems, batteries, converters and inverters but haven't been able to work out the best combination to use to power say, a TV, a caravan fridge, a laptop and a microwave.
Is there a formula that I can use to calculate the specs required for the solar panel/inverter/batteries and inverter?
A description of a working system with examples of what the system is powering and the sunlight hours required to keep it alive would be very helpful.
