What size of solar panel do I need?

Trickle charging your battery. Trickle charging can generally be achieved using a 50 watt solar panel. Your battery should charge up steadily when not in use, for most of the year.
More power. To get more from your solar panel system we advise fitting a 100 watt panel. Benefit from additional power in the summer months and reliable charging during the winter.
Power independence. The average user can achieve independence from the mains hook-up with a system of 200 watts.

See our guide for more detailed information: “Fitting a solar panel. Where do I start?”.
