WHY USE SOLAR POWER?

 

Small boats: A solar panel can keep the battery fully charged when the boat is on the trailer, at a mooring or in slip. All batteries self-discharge, and a small panel can eliminate the problems caused by dead batteries. Since solar panels put out pure DC power, they are excellent chargers. 

Recreational cruising sailboats and power boats can use solar panels to supplement their other charging sources. Sailboats on long voyages will need to use their propulsion engine for one to two hours per day to charge batteries and replace the energy that’s been consumed.

 

With a couple of solar panels installed, these boats can extend their time between engine uses by a day or more. Efficient solar-equipped boats may not have to use the engine for charging at all.

Techmarine can do a full inspection of your boat and discuss your needs to provide the right advice when choosing the correct panels for your boat as well as mounting systems, chargers and controllers. 

Vans Can be fitted out in a similar way on site or at our workshop in Main beach.
