FITTING SERVICES: Flexible Solar Panels
Suitable for vehicles with Elevating Roofs
As we become more and more aware of power usage, solar power is becoming increasingly popular as a form of generating power in campervan conversions.
Not only do we demand more power for 12v compressor fridges and a multitude of other devices in our leisure vehicles but it is becoming more popular for many campers to use lower facility sites or to wild camp.
Our new, advanced MPV Flexible Solar Panels are made up of thin solar cells constructed from copper, indium, gallium and selenium which can harvest significantly more energy over a standard flexible monocrystalline panel. This means that a lower wattage MPV Flexible panel can generate equal to or more power than a standard MPV or Glass PV Panel.
This is because the technology is much more efficient at harvesting power in low light conditions (such as in overcast weather) which means it starts working earlier in the day and later in the evening. Their unique wiring enables cells to work independently, meaning if part of the panel is in shade or if there are any faults in one cell, it does not affect any other cells (as all linked monocrystalline cells stop working if any cell is shaded or faulty). This makes our panels more than 17% efficient over glass photovoltaic panels and 60-70% more efficient than an equivalent flexible monocrystalline solar panel.
Most standard flexible monocrystalline panels are notorious for failing after a short period of time. Standard Flexible monocrystalline panels do not cope well in hot weather as they have a tendency to overheat and burn themselves out.
Monocrystalline Panels and Standard Flexible Panels are often fragile and vulnerable to the vibration of the vehicle and to vibrations from an elevating roof. Our panels are fully manufactured in the UK and are designed to also be used on commercial roofs that are constantly walked on, and therefore are highly durable.

Solar panel efficiency is measured in Watts calculated from how much of the sun’s energy a panel can convert into usable electricity, however this is often an unreliable way for consumers to working out which is the best flexible panel to choose for their motorhome. Our panels are made up of thin solar cells constructed from copper, indium, gallium and selenium which can harvest significantly more energy over a standard flexible monocrystalline panel when compared solely in wattage size.
