Hypothetical: Let’s say you live in a hot, humid climate like, oh, I don’t know, the Texas Gulf Coast.
You have all the sunshine you could possibly want, and in summer you have a good 14 hours of it per day. The only problem is that it’s astonishingly hot and humid all night long and you want to use your roof A/C to keep cool and dry while you snooze the night away and to keep the mushrooms from growing in your shorts drawer.
The obvious solution, of course, would be to fill up ol’ Betsy with gas and head for northern New Mexico ASAP. But suppose that option wasn’t available for some reason. Remember, this is all hypothetical; a sane person would just bail and head for the mountains.
I’m not smart enough to calculate this on my own, so can anyone tell me how much battery it would take to do the job and how much solar that battery group would need to recharge during the day enough to run the A/C all night. Let’s assume for the moment that all the other needs are taken care of – just talking about the requirements for the A/C in this discussion. Also, to narrow the field, let’s assume just one single, normal sized A/C unit in a small TT or Class C.
