No power? Do you also have No headlights? No horn? No radio? If so, check: 1. Clean the inside of the battery terminals 2. Check for blown fuses, fusible links, and relays

Did you charge the battery after you bought it? New batteries are not fully charged when you buy them new.

Why did car lose all power when engine was still running?

All power or most power? When an engine's alternator (which is a generator for everything electrical on a vehicle) goes bad, the vehicle tends to run until the power in the battery runs out. During this process, all the electrical components (radio, lights, etc) start dimming due to the engines electrical system giving priority to the ignition system (spark plugs, ICM or Distributor, etc). (Side Note: the battery is only used to crank the engine, not to run it.) Now if it loses all power, with the engine running, then I have no idea. There must be a major short and or quite a bit of fuses burned out.

What should I know about installing solar panels in northern climates where sunshine may be limited?

If I unwrapped the outside plastic cover on a rechargeable battery NiMH for the Kodak cameras can I still use it?

Yes, but you should wrap the area that was previously covered by the wrapper and paper or plastic ring with electrical tape to avoid a possible short circuit. If you still have the paper or plastic ring, put it over the positive terminal and let the electrical tape cover it. Do not put tape over the terminals. Use only one layer of electrical tape so the battery will fit more easily in the battery compartment. If electrical tape makes the battery too big to fit into the compartment, you may use Scotch tape, but I would recommend electrical tape if it will fit.

It may be the battery, if the car is running the alternator should still be good. The battery may not be holding charge and supplying your car with reserve power. I would take you car to the autoparts store and have them test the electrical system. They will do this for free and tell you if the alternator and or battery is bad.
