I think the key to your success is in the first sentence. "I would like to experiement" Go to and order a couple back issues, maybe the latest CD. Read up on what you need to setup your power requirements in your shed. Play with it and have fun. Will it be more economical with Solar, probally not. Can you just buy a 100 foot 12 ga extension cord and string it out to your shed? Yes. Is that fun? You decide what your intentions are and do what you want...

Thanks and have fun.

1. You did not mention how long the stuff would be operating. But a single 32W panel seems small.
2. The charge controller seems ok. Always try to go a little bigger so it last your upgrade cycles.
3. For a starter system, four Golf Cart Batteries can be bought from Sams Club for $45 each. I did, they work, same size, no shipping...
4. Inverters can be 400 - 1000W cheapies form Walmart, Sams, Home Depot. Try
5. Cables. Use 10ga from panels to charger. Buy Car Jumper Cables and cut them to fit from Battery to Inverter. You should build a plywood box to hold batteries and mount inverter on outside of box, like on the left or font, etc.
6. Homepower Mag can help.
