I’d like to deploy a FieldKit station with solar power, but I’m not sure it’ll get enough light to keep the station powered. Is there a way to find out?
As a rule of thumb 6-8 hours of full sun a day is ample power to charge a FieldKit station. Any spot with enough sun for a vegetable garden will be good for your station. In general, solar panels being used in the Northern Hemisphere should face ...
