Caravan Solar Panel FAQs
Our caravan solar panel kits include everything you need to begin generating renewable energy. That means a 12v solar panel, mountings, charge controller, wiring and cables and full installation instructions.
There are two main types of caravan solar panel, thin film and crystalline. Thin film is flexible and cost-effective while crystalline is thicker and less flexible but more efficient and more expensive. Which you choose depends on how you want to fit your panel and how much energy you need to generate.
Both roof mounted caravan solar panels and free standing panels generate power. Roof mounted can be fixed into place using empty space on your roof and can generate energy even when you’re not there. Free standing can be directed directly at the sun but needs to be set up and cannot recharge batteries on the move or when you’re not there.
Yes, caravan solar panels do generate power when it’s overcast. While they perform at their best in direct sunlight, they can still generate electricity on cloudy days. It will take longer to recharge a battery on overcast days but it can still happen.
Yes, you can generate enough solar energy to power a household appliance. Much will depend on what type of appliance it is but you can definitely power caravan versions of appliances and can power standard household appliances. You’ll need a solar panel sufficient to generate the energy and an inverter to change DC current into AC though.
There are two main ways that caravan solar panels are installed. One is to bond the panel directly onto the roof. The other is to use a roof mount that holds the panel in place on the roof. Much depends on the type of panel you use, but both provide safe, efficient ways to secure a panel into place.
Our caravan solar panels are DIY fit but we do offer professional installation if you would prefer we did it for you. There are benefits to having panels installed by experts. We can do it within our AWS-approved workshop, our team are experts at this and all parts and labour come with full guarantees.
We would say it is relatively easy to install a caravan solar panel kit. Every kit comes with full installation instructions and we provide videos outlining the process. Anyone confident with power tools and who can follow basic wiring instructions should be fine.
