Our mission is to provide a portable energy solution that is clean and quiet. Our solar panels are the most efficient on the market, lightweight and flexible, affordable and have no maintenance. Unlike running a portable generator, our panels do not require refuelling, produce free energy silently and without the dangers of carbon monoxide and other dangerous products of combustion.
There have been many advancements in solar the last 5-10 years for the marine industry. Many boaters have embraced solar as a quiet solution to free energy
while sailing underway or anchoring in a serene, quiet bay. A solar array on your boat allows your boat to work for you while your enjoying various activities with family or simply un-winding.
The PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) controller is a very basic device that interfaces a solar array to a battery bank. The voltage of the array will be lowered to match that of the battery bank reducing overall system performance.
The MPPT (Maximum Power Point Tracking) controller is more sophisticated in its functionality, it will adjust its input voltage to harvest the maximum power from the solar array and then transform this power to supply the varying voltage requirements of the battery bank. MPPT is by far the best choice for modern day solar arrays.
