Lightweight design, laminated plastic sheet with flexible solar cells. This panel is only 4mm thick
Our flexible solar panels now include the far superior ETFE outer layer. This is essential for the long life of your flexible solar panel. The smooth shiny finish flexi panels are PET finish which can break down and peel off due to UV solar damage, often in less than 2 years’. ETFE is a little more expensive during production but worth it in the long run. It also has the benefit of slip resistance for marine applications
Designed in the UK. CE, TUV, ISO 9001 quality assurance.
Why Go Solar?
Beat energy inflation, energy security, remote location power sources (save a fortune on armored cabling), mobile power sources, fast payback periods over conventional fuel sources such as diesel generation and hook-ups, keep batteries fully charged at all time as deep discharge shortens life, environmentally friendly power which reduces carbon emissions to slow global warming and climate change.
Laminated panel construction, suitable for marine usage, also includes water-tight solar connectors. Also for Boats, Caravans, Motorhomes, electric fencing, road/ path/ driveway illuminated signage, campsites, yurts, multi-panel off grid power source for small buildings, remote telecomms, mobile food outlets, and many more…
Independent Off-Grid Solar Power Source
One or more solar panels can be connected a battery bank and power inverter using a solar charge controller. You can therefore have a 240v power supply anywhere in the world without grid supply. Please see our solar power kits
We have a rough guide below to solar panel power output relative to weather conditions:-
100% power output – clear sky midday sun with the panel fully tilted toward the sun’s position in the sky.
75-85% output – clear sky midday sun but with the panel laid flat
50-65% output – thin cloud, or intermittent small clouds
10-20% output – midday overcast sky or rainy conditions

Maximum PV Array input power
When the PV array is connected to the charge controller with correct polarity, the Max. PV Array Power must not exceed three times the Rate Charge Power.
These MPPT controllers have a limiting function on charging current to protect the components and circuits. They will charge the battery(s) within the rated charging power even if PV input power exceeds this range, for example
1, If the PV array output power is less than or equal to the rated charge power above, the controller will charge the battery(s) at the actual maximum power point;
2, If the PV array output power is greater than the rated charge power above, the controller will charge the battery(s) at the maximum rated power.
This should be taken into account when designing the PV array power output which may peak during summer months causing some surplus generation in off-grid systems. For larger PV arrays, this solar charge controller may only form part of the overall system where some of the power generation is channelled into battery storage and the remainder of power generation may have real time usage/ consumption.
In the event that the solar panel is in shade for a prolonged period, our solar panels has two built-in bypass diodes which will enable the panel to continue generating.
