Power up with Solar Panels


03.10.2014


Modern caravans and motorhomes are becoming more luxurious all the time, as we look for freedom coupled with a home from home experience. The result is that many of the appliances we take for granted at home are now part and parcel of holidaying on the road. We're looking for high quality lighting, refrigeration, cooking and entertainment even when we're not 'tied' to a mains hook up.   Growing numbers of caravan and motorhome owners are using solar pv panels mounted on the roof to help keep the batteries charged, so you can enjoy true freedom in comfort, whilst being miles away from the nearest mains connection. 

The power from the solar panels normally feeds into a large 'domestic' battery and a regulator is used between the panels and the batteries to prevent overcharging. 
The number and size of the solar panels to fit to a motorhome is often more dependant on the available installation space and budget, than on daily energy use. Most owners are simply looking to get as much charge as possible into the batteries.

We can also supply Sunshine Portable Solar Kits, with no installation needed. Just hook the clamps directly onto the battery you want to charge and that’s it...so simple!
