Marine Solar Panels Added To Range

Posted by in Eco Products, Eco News Blog on May 05, 2010 . .

If you are looking for a robust solar panel for your yacht, boat or caravan we can now supply a full range of the  excellent Spectra and Sunware semi-flexible panels.

Solar Battery Maintenance

Use a solar panel to charge your battery and be greeted by fully charged batteries every time you return to your yacht, boat or caravan!

The solar panel will keep your battery in a fully charged state which not only extends battery life, therefore reducing replacement costs but will also make your life easier!

What Size Solar Panel? 

As a rule of thumb, to replace natural battery drain through the winter months in the UK we work on 10W of solar power to every 100Ah of battery capacity.

This will ensure your battery is maintained through winter when we have minimal sunlight hours and you are less likely to be using your boat.

Come the summer months and longer sunshine hours, the solar panel will also offer useful additional charge to the battery to offset drains on the battery from use of on-board lights and appliances. This means reduced engine running time and more peace and quiet!

Spectra Solar Panels

The following semi-flexible Spectra panels are now available :

Ideal for lighter charging duties the Spectra panels offer efficiency and reliability at an affordable price.
