How & Why to Wire Solar Panels in Parallel or in Series

My solar array is actually two arrays

When connecting multiple solar panels into an off-grid energy system, there are a few wiring options: parallel, series, or a hybrid (a combination of the two). In this blog, I’ll show you the basics of wiring solar panels in parallel and in series. Then, using my off-grid system as an example, we’ll see why we would use one or the other, or both. Let’s start off with a quick comparison of parallel and series circuits. Continue reading “How & Why to Wire Solar Panels in Parallel or in Series”
