Been intermittently sunny today and it has charged much more than the last few days, so it gives me hope it should be good enough.

Also made a Web dashboard of sorts with some voltage data and GPS Tracking

O_o So I guess that massive heatwave last week was just a southern thing?

When it's super hot are solar panels more effective, or is it just a matter of direct sunlight from a cloudless sky gives the same amount of energy in winter as in summer?

Direct sunlight is needed, or preferred at least to get the most power generated.

Direct sunlight in winter is less useful as it is less intense due to the angle in incidence. Same as why it's colder in winter than summer. Earth tilting away from the sun rather than towards the sun. Same light beams spread further. You obviously also get less hours of daylight in winter, but that's got nothing to do with the intensity of the light.

Still generate some whilst cloudy, just nothing like a clear sunny day.

Panel seems to be doing a reasonable job. Done some tests with lights on for 8-10 hours and fairly happy.
Started the insulation process over the last couple of evenings. Kinda just winging it, hopefully it won't be too rubbish.

Will post some work in progress photos later.

Bought some wood, cut a frame



Built the frame



Bought some more wood, made the surfaces



Started to tidy up some electrics



Bought an airbed - which fits very well

Can the airbed be inflated and deflated without getting out of the van?

If it's like all the other airbeds I've ever tried, it auto-deflates at 2 am.

Easy solution to that: buy an Australian one. Then it'll deflate 6 hours later, right when you want it to...
