Solar Panels for Caravans


Solar panel systems enable you to use the sun's energy on your own purposes. Solar energy is a renewable energy source and a great way to generate power for you and your family on caravan adventures - especially through the summer!

A range of complete solar system kits designed for caravans and motorhomes including the VISION PLUS 40W SOLAR PANEL MASTER KIT

Do solar panels work?


Yes they do! They provide some of the most successful examples where they provide power away from a mains supply. As the sun hits the panel, the kinetic energy from it is absorbed and converted into a source of energy which will power your laptop as well as your fridge or any other electrical accessory in your caravan. The panels work best with consistent sunshine, so sunny days are obnviously better than overcast onesl, although power may be stored once converted, and it is surprising how little sun is actually required.

Just how do they assist in my caravan or motorhome?


Quite simply by charging your battery(s) during daylight hours. They work at their best in bright clear sunshine, most high quality solar power panels will still produce a useful charging current even just in cloudy conditions.

What size solar panel is necessary on a caravan or motorhome?


To some extent this is actually the "How long is a little bit of string" question. As a general guide, most caravan owners would want to attempt to balance the power produced by a solar panel with their average daily 12v power consumption. Average consumption is also a wide question, generally it is in the region of 10-20 Ampere hours (Ah) per day in the leisure battery. (Batteries are rated in Ampere hours, 85, 100, 110, 120 amp hours, this describes the storage capacity of the battery).

A 50w solar panel will produce up to 3 Amps (A) each hour in bright sunny conditions. For a good sunny day, allowing for the changing position on the sun in the sky, lower in the morning and evening, overhead in the center of the day, you could expect this 50w panel to create 14 to 18 Ah of battery power. As previously stated, most solar panel systems will still produce power in less than ideal conditions.
