Solar panel doesn’t appear to be charging.

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Another question from me - I have a solar panel that runs through a controller to the battery. It was working fine after installation earlier this year, but now it’s not. Today it was showing on the controller as the panel producing between 10 - 12volt, but no amps going into the battery. A volt metre confirmed the voltage - but I can’t figure out why it isn’t charging the battery.

Thanks. It’s an mppt controller. Disconnected from the controller and direct to the multi metre it was still only showing fluctuating between 10 - 12 volts. Do you think the panel is knackered - it wasn’t shaded....
