    Aahh, so the 15amps was after the MPPT Redarc. I've rarely got more than the rated current out of a panel, but I only use a PWM controller.
    I'm lucky to get 15A out of my 3 panels....340W.

    Actually I assumed that the 15 amps was before the Redarc but now you mention it I am not sure. I'll msg the guy and check.
