Efficient And Effective? Keep The World’s Wheels Turning With Solar Panels On Your Camper

To improve your environmental impact at the same time as removing the problem of finding a power source during your journeys, the plausible solution for you could be to fit your campervan roof with solar panels.Read on to find out more about all the ways solar panels can help you during your travels.

  1. Refreshing Battery Power

When you travel off to explore, the last thing you want is to be constantly worrying and planning your journey based on where you can find power. With a camper equipped with solar panels, you can rely on a leisure battery that will keep its charge for longer and make sure you stay supplied with lighting, 12v power outlets (to keep your devices charged), and probably most importantly, refrigeration of all of your food and drinks while pitched up - all this at no extra cost and without a generator letting off fossil fuels.

  1. Carbon Footprint

As with solar panels on buildings, the main draw is that they can help to reduce your ecological footprint. Harnessing the power of the sun for your energy is the more environmentally friendly method, and why wouldn’t you want to help protect the planet?

  1. Getaway For Longer

The possible risk of your battery dying is mitigated by the use of solar panels, keeping you ‘off the grid’ for longer before having to rely on your engine or another power source to charge the batteries back up.

  1. Easy Maintenance

Solar panels are easy to maintain, requiring only a clean-down every so often so that there is nothing blocking the sun from reaching them. This means that once they are installed, they will last you years with barely a second thought.

  1. Save Money

If you have experience with a camper van, you will know that a lot of sites charge extra costs for using electricity hookups. As long as the sun is visible and shining, this will be a thing of the past once you have solar panels since you will have all your electricity supplied directly to you from the sun. This can save you money as well as help reduce your carbon footprint.
