(14-Feb-2017): The new PV Logic FLEXi solar panel marks a significant advancement in sustainable power generation for the motorhome, caravan and campervan market. PV Logic FLEXi panels have achieved an ISO9227 Saltwater Spray Testing standard, guarding against delamination and guaranteeing the electrics remain fully protected even under the toughest conditions.
“With coastal destinations a firm favourite among leisure vehicle owners, we want to provide a solar power option that can be relied upon and that means able to withstand the rigours of the environment with no delamination,” explains Adrian Williams, Managing Director of Solar Technology International.
Williams continues: “The coastal idyll comes with a hidden cost when the harsh acidic effect of sea mist and salt sea spray carried on the wind cause deterioration of many of the surfaces they touch. Due to the exposed rooftop location of the panel it was important for us to produce not only a highly efficient, lightweight, flexible panel but also a solar panel with the durability required to withstand the great outdoors.”
PV Logic FLEXi solar panels weigh in at just over half the standard rigid panel equivalent, an important benefit as the amount of ‘new tech and kit’ fitted on today’s leisure vehicles can tip the scales, driving down fuel efficiencies.
The ability of the PV Logic FLEXi panel to flex along its length enables it to yield to the curvature of any motorhome, caravan or camper roof and ensure almost seamless rooftop bonding for the ultimate streamline profile. Additionally its self-healing surface repairs any slight abrasions that can be caused by low hanging branches.
The PV Logic FLEXi panel was put through the ultimate environmental and salt spray test last year when panels were installed on an ocean going sailing boat embarking on the Polar Ocean Challenge, led by British Explorer Sir David Hempleman-Adams. The boat successfully sailed around the North Pole exposing the PV Logic FLEXi solar panels to salt spray and Arctic temperatures as low as minus 10 degrees centigrade for the duration of the 120 day voyage, the panels provided much of the power onboard from cooking food to running a laptop.
The PV Logic FLEXi solar panels are available in sizes from 5W – 120W and start from RRP £55. Each panel is supplied with a five year warranty and panels are available as ‘DIY’ PV Logic FLEXi Rooftop Kits, alternatively a nationwide premier dealer network provides a retro-fit service.
