OFF GRID SOLAR SYSTEM KIT
for INLAND BOATS - 12v & 220v
all kinds of boat
Narrowboats, widebeams, and river cruisers are all small houses that just happen to float. They use electricity for all the same reasons. They cannot always be connected to the mains; so having a solar system for home makes sense. The only thing for which solar panel cost is too high is heating. Wood burning stoves are our favourite.
There are complete off-grid solar system solutions for all needs.
Three new reasons to go solar
1. More power, less bucks
Solar panel cost is not only much lower than before, but you only need daylight NOT SUNLIGHT, and they have become more efficient at converting light into electricity - much more power for your pound! We like the semi-flexible kind for their ease of installation and tolerance of being installed on a curved roof.
2. NEW HYBRID INVERTERS MANAGE 12v AND 220V
The new hybrid controller/inverters manage everything seamlessly. This means that you use solar when you can, batteries when needed, and shore power 220V if you have it connected AND need it. Your entire 220v domestic system can be connected to your solar panels with the controller deciding from where best to source the energy. Your batteries are also charged automatically.
3. a solar water heater works using excess solar power
Even in Britain, during the Great British summer, your batteries will often be fully charged by mid-day, and the rest of your consumption is not that great. USE that energy to heat the water in your boiler with our patented intelligent hot water controller.
Less than 600w of solar (but more than 300w) there is an easily installed 12v system
More than 600w, just add our paired inverter and intelligent controller
