I have ten 100watt panels and a 20amp MPPT charge controller. The controller says a max of 528watts so does this mean I can only wire up 5 panels without blowing my charge controller or am I way off the mark here. Sorry for the newbie questions but just starting out in this new hobby.

ChargeMPPT you are correct, IF you are running at 24v (including battery setup).
If you're running at 12v, you'll need FIVE controllers (2 panels per controller) __________________ Solar is like the wind. It may be free, but putting it to work isn't! Willie, Tampa Bay
