    It would help to know what appliances you are powering.

    Apart from the (LED) lights all we have are the water pump, blown air heating fan (much less power hungry than we thought it might be) and recharging of e-readers/phones/computers &c to power.

    Our 80W panel replaces all we take out of our 85Ah battery on a daily basis for at least 10 months of the year.

    I suggest more panels.

    I have lived in my Iveco self build for years and years.

    I have four roof top panels.

    Solar panels are like beers in the fridge or giga bytes in your computer. You can never have too many... :Wink:
