I want to start with 6 x 210w panels and have an option to add 2 more when we're ready. I want the 2 extra panels to be pretty much "plug-n-play" when it's time.

**Hightec Solar 210W 36 Cell 12V Nominal Solar Panel - 6 Busbar:**

- Power: 210 Watt
- Vmp: 22.42V
- Voc: 24.9V
- Imp: 9.37A
- Isc: 9.85A
