Will this be enough to run a pi day and night
In the uk?
Ant
  • Probably not.

    It will massively depend on what the Raspberry Pi is doing, and if you have things plugged in to the USB/GPIO ports.

    When the Pi is idle, not doing anything, it'll consume roughly 1.9W but when under heavy load it can increase to 5W. As the solar panel won't be producing power during the night, a battery will need to be large enough to provide power during night, then the solar panel will need to provide enough power to the battery to charge it, whilst providing enough power to run the Pi as well.
