#1 -  Renewable Energy > Technical Discussion: Solar Electric System - Photovoltaic > Simple questions for my RV solar setup:
I'm not sure if the panel I want is compatible with my batteries or mainly with the charge controller I already got.

The panel is 327W and VOC 64.9V. My charge controller says the maximum open circuit voltage is 48V.

I want this panel because it's super efficient and light weight.

I have two AGM group 24 batteries, I think they're only 50Ah each or something. Not sure, they're aren't labeled.

Can this panel work with my controller and batteries or is the voltage too high for the controller? Or both?

If I just need a better controller, any recommendations? If I can get this panel, I will eventually have just under 500W total eventually. The other panel will probably be something more normal like 150W and VOC ~30...
