Campervan Solar Panel Guide
What is a campervan solar panel?
A campervan solar panel is a device that converts sunlight into electrical energy, which can be used to power appliances and devices in a campervan. The solar panel is mounted on the roof or outside of the campervan and connected to a battery system.
What are the benefits of using a campervan solar panel?
Solar panels are a low maintenance way to power your campervan and save money. Harnessing the sun's power means you’ll reduce the expensive electricity bills. Plus, you’ll have no trouble going off the beaten track and still powering up your now "eco-friendly" camper. Here are a list of benefits with your panel:
- Save money on bills
- Reduce your reliance on external power sources
- Environmentally friendly
Rooftop & flexible solar panel kits for campervans will help power the whole camper. That way, you can travel without searching for campsites or electric sockets, enabling you to really discover the great outdoors!
How do I choose the right campervan solar panel for my needs?
When choosing a campervan solar panel, consider factors such as the size and power requirements of your campervan, your budget, and the amount of sunlight available in your area. It's also important to choose a high-quality solar panel from a reputable manufacturer to ensure reliability and durability.
Choosing the right output for what you need is important! Too low an output and you’ll find yourself running out of power. Alternatively, you could spend a large amount on a top-of-the-range set up and only be using a small proportion of its output. Here are some general guidelines for what wattage you need.
Where to Put Your Motorhome Solar Panel?
At Camperco we have a large range of portable solar panels, semi flexible solar panels and roof & deck top kits. Motorhome and campervanners will usually install deck top or lightweight solar panels on the roof of their vehicle. Thus ensuring they optimise solar efficiency. For those looking for a more flexible approach, the portable solar panel can be taken freely and packed away for any of your trips. This is useful for when you change vehicles or for flexibility with what you want to charge.
