RAPS Design Steps:

1. Calculate your Power Requirements
Figure your load in Amp-hours per day. Consider both continuous and intermittent loads in a 24-hour period. Average over a week if loads change daily.

2. Determine your Solar Insolation Zone
Locate your site on the map below. The map represents average solar energy available in the winter. Available energy increases incrementally from zones 1 through 5.

3. Use the Performance Table to Choose your System
The tables below represent the Amp-hours per day performance of each RAPS system in the different solar zones. Choose your system voltage, then look down your solar zone column for the value that meets or exceeds your design load Amp-hours. Follow the row to the left for the corresponding prepackaged RAPS system that will fully power your load requirements.
