Solar Panels - are they for you?

"We decided to get a solar panel, but, at the start, we knew very little about solar panels.   We had a vague idea of how they worked - you know, the sun shines on the panel and it puts out electricity to charge the batteries - sounds great.   After doing a little research, we found there are several different types and sizes.   Which type was best for our application?   We also had to decide where and how to mount the panel.   Do we need a regulator?   Its not difficult, but there are several things one needs to consider before running out to the nearest marine store and plopping down cash for a solar panel."
