Eric,

Are you sure it's "1000 watts"? That one hell of a size solar panel. That should pump out about 75 to 80 amps at 12 volts. The regulator wouldn't be cheap either. 1000 watts - phew!

G'day eric,
1000 watts. Thats some serious power. A 900 watt system will set you back around $13,000 less Gov rebate of $3,600. A 1050 watt system around $14,000 less rebate of $4,000. Chuck out about 6KW a day. If you mean 100 watts, then a google search will probably find you something.

120 watt is normally the biggest you'll get.
1,000 watts would be nice, but sorry it aint possible. Maybe some day....
