I was thinking it would be a neat idea to set up a wind or solar powered battery charger to my boat. She has 24 volt electrics supplied by two groups of 2x 12v batteries. Reasons behind the thinking were 1) So I can run the (large) fridge etc when anchored out of port for days at a time 2) So I can leave the batteries on a constant trickle charge over the winter which will insure that the auto bilge pumo always works if needed and that the batteries (I hope) should have a longer life.
Is this feasible and would solar be more effective than wind, seeing as Aquarius is moored in the South of France ??
