I use a 150 watt portable unit so I can track the sun.
Problem with them on roof is they are fixed and at best you only get 4-5 hrs good sun. not to mention holes in roof. I was told my 150 portable is probably better than 450 watt that is laying flat, as
I can angle right at sun. I can pull in about 12 amps per hour.
Do your research as there are lots of options. I would opt to stay away from Chinese stuff and look for something with the Bosch solar cells.
