The session will begin with the power requirements of your individual access point and move to how much up time is required (i.e. 24×7). The power required from the access point along with the length of uptime required will lead you to the amount of amp hours needed to provide reliable power to your device. Once these calculations are determined, there will need to be a recharge rate determined based on the depleting amp hours and the amount of usable sun light (renewable energy) available to provide a full charge. These numbers are then used to calculate the size (in watts) of the solar panel(s) needed to provide the recharge rate during available daylight hours. Lastly, we will factor in percentages of non-peak times such as cloudy days, rain, snow, etc. and engineer the final circuit and pick out our hardware for building our power source.
