How to choose a solar panel kit. Read on...
These kits can be installed with ease by the average DIY enthusiast.

What do the kits contain?

SunWorks solar panel kits provide the main items required to install solar power on your boat. Each kit contains one or more solar panels, the appropriate SunWorks precision charge controller, and the correct cable with the connectors already attached. These kits are the one-stop way to a secure and efficient solar panel installation.

Also in the kits are full instructions with illustrations, and our recommendations for a professional looking installation.

Our kits are also available with semi-flexible solar panels.

What size of solar panel do I need?

Trickle charging your battery can usually be achieved using a 50 watt solar panel. This size of solar panel will keep your battery in good condition from Spring through to Autumn.

If you want enough power to maintain your batteries and power some appliances we advise fitting a 100 watt panel. This will give you a significant amount of power in the summer months and more reliable charging during the winter. 100 watts is the most popular size of solar panel fitted to boats.

If you are interested in becoming independent of the mains hook-up you should consider fitting a 200 watt system.

Can I charge both batteries?

SunWorks UNO-ECO kits are designed to charge one battery only.

If you want to charge both your engine battery and your leisure battery take a look at our DUO-ECO kits.

Examples of suitable solar panel kits for narrowboats:

1. You only want to trickle charge your leisure battery but need to do this reliably during summer and winter. Choose a 100-UNO-ECO kit. This kit will also power many appliances during the summer months.

2. You want to be independent of the mains hookup. Choose a 200-UNO-ECO kit.

Do I need anything else?

Each installation is different. Therefore our kits contain the essential electrical items, carefully matched to work efficiently together. You may also need:

Adjustable mounting frame. This will give you up to 50% addition power by tilting your solar panel up to face the Sun. The frame can be adapted to the curved cabin top of a narrowboat using our adjustable mounting feet.

Corner mounts. Strong PVC mountings to secure your solar panel.

Aluminium Z-brackets. An alternative to the PVC corner mounts. Can be screwed and glued.

Sikaflex 252i adhesive. For fixing the solar panel mounts to the deck and sealing the watertight gland.

Watertight deck gland. Takes the cable securely through to the interior of your boat.

Fused battery harness. Makes the connection to your battery safe and easy.
