The heart of every solar panel system is the charge controller. The charge controller should ensure that your solar panel is working at the best possible performance. SunWorks charge controllers will get your batteries to the highest, safe charge levels. Your batteries will last longer, saving you money and time. We designed and built the World’s first dual battery solar panel charge controller in 2002. Since then, our charge controllers have provided countless owners with trouble free solar battery charging.
So whether you own a sailing yacht or a motorhome, a narrowboat or a caravan, talk to us about your solar panel system. We are always pleased to hear about your experiences and we can help you get the best from your solar panel system. Here are a few ideas:
Solar power for motorhomes. Fit your motorhome with either a rigid aluminium framed solar panel, or a semi-flexible solar panel. Both are easy to install and either type will enhance your holiday experience. You can charge just your leisure battery, or you can use a dual battery charge controller to charge engine and leisure batteries from the same solar panel. If you prefer not to fit a solar panel to the roof of your van, take a look at our portable solar panels.
Solar power for sailing boats. If you expect to sail in bad weather conditions, or you want to be able to walk on your solar panels, the Solara range of marine quality solar panels will not disappoint. These very special solar panels can take a lot of hard wearing and can be fitted to slightly curve surfaces if necessary. All other sailing boats will benefit from standard aluminium framed solar panels or semi-flexible panels, fitted away from busy deck areas.
Solar power for caravans. The best type of solar panel for a caravan is the semi-flexible panel which is simply glued to the roof of the van. It is aerodynamic, light and totally weatherproof. These panels have improved drastically over the last couple of years and are now even more efficient than their framed equivalents. Alternatively, you may like to consider using a portable solar panel. No installation to do, just take it out when you need it.
Solar power for narrowboats. Most narrowboats have a lot of available space to fit a solar panel. The least expensive types are the rigid aluminium framed panels which are easy to fit and produce a lot of power, especially if they can be tilted upwards a little to face the Sun directly.
