    I should be able to electrify my scooter bin (bike trailer) with some PV panels. Anyone have a good source for these, along with needed controller???..

    Any pros and cons for the different brands and types,,,etc,, such as monocrystalline,, etc,.

    The fact that I can get power, to do what I want and not have to pay for petroleum products makes me happy!! :p:

    Solar panels are cool, but expensive. I heard "they" are developing solar panel roof shingles for houses. You wouldn't even have to pay a power bill if you had those! :thup:
