Set the controls for the heart of the sun

No, its not SpaceX delivering solar panels to the international space station. Rather, it’s the 260 watt PV panel I bought today squeezed into my CRV:


…if it was a 261 watt panel, I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have fit.

I got a great deal on this closeout REC Solar panel (75 cents per watt) from a company in Campbell called ML Solar. I just need to bodge up some connector wires to start running my Yeti 1250 on sun power! At this point, I’m not planning on permanently mounting the panel on the tiny house. Instead I want to build an adjustable-angled frame that will sit on the ground.
