    It sounds like you want to connect directly to your AC?

    Or just use a ac plug on your panel?

    On the first you really need a AC modulater or a DC filter along with current limiting to prevent the AC from destroying you and your panel.

    Your panel is limited in wattage where your AC peak is not.

    Look at it this way, normal DC energy sources are switched in an out, your DC doesn't touch the AC. It's safer that way in case your DC shorts to ground. If there are any series of glitches your become a very large hole in the ground and that untility operated power plant? That can fuse into one of the biggest explosions you've ever seen.

    On the second just wire the plug in it's all made of copper and iron impurities are normal in everything used in electricity.

    Nothing is perfect.

    You can do that and make sure whatever you plug into that socket uses d.c. current.

    If you want to power mains powered appliances from a solar panel you will need an inverter to convert from DC to AC and get the correct voltage. You will also likely need a very large solar panel to provide sufficient power, the size of the panel required obviously depends on what you need to power and how bright the light is.

    PlugIn Solar uses Solar boards to create FREE ELECTRICITY from daylight. This power is changed over from DC to AC by a Micro Inverter, and encouraged into your mains electric circuit (by means of a Plug-In Solar Connection Unit) enabling you to control your family unit machines.

    NO. The voltage is different.

    Sure, but it will only supply the voltage and current produced by the solar panel.
