 There will generally be more "​surplus"​ power available when using MPPT charge controllers v. PWM,​((http://​forum.solar-electric.com/​discussion/​comment/​372165#​Comment_372165))((http://​forum.solar-electric.com/​discussion/​comment/​250746#​Comment_250746)) though the difference is less dramatic during periods one would run opportunity loads (see [[electrical:​solar:​nonessential#​when_to_run_opportunity_loads|below]]). ​ Siphoning off power can actually **help PWM controllers run cooler** by reducing the ON-OFF switching activity that generates heat. There will generally be more "​surplus"​ power available when using MPPT charge controllers v.
