A good set of solar panels can make or break a project of living off-grid, with more and more people opting to use their motorhome as their place of residence and ‘van’ life also rising in popularity, the demand for solar panels for vehicles has risen greatly in recent years.
Going on holiday with your motorhome and the correct solar panels installed gives you access to free electricity on the road without having to rely on a holiday park to connect your motorhome to power. This means you can power your fridge/freezer on the go and cook hot meals from the comfort of your motorhome.
There are many benefits of free electricity generation that include silent power and no reliance on fossil fuels means that solar power is greatly sought after. It’s worth noting that the correct size panel should be purchased with our recommendation of 200w being a good starting point to power lightbulbs, TV’s, water, electric ovens and to be able to charge devices.
As the solar panels only generate power during the day we recommend installing a battery to be able to store the generated electricity, thus meaning you can have access to electricity at all hours of the day, it’s incredibly likely your motorhome/caravan already has a battery installed however if this is being drained daily then you may want to purchase an additional to be able to manage the power.
We have compiled a list of 5 sets of 200 watt and over panels that will help to improve your experience on the road.
