I need to extend the solar panel for optimum position. Is there a recommended wire
Hi there, neighbor! If the cable for your solar panel is not long enough to have it mounted in a spot for optimal sunlight at the mounting location, you are free to get a cable similar in nature that is longer. A cable of similar specifications and a barrel connection at the end should be fine to use for extending your solar panel’s reach. Keep in mind, the longer the run of a wire is, the more likely power is lost along the way. To be specific, please note that there is about a 0.1-0.2% of the voltage lost per foot of 18AWG cable. I hope this helps!
