RV Solar Kits

Solar power for your RV means you can say goodbye to noisy generators and wasted gas!

The Cost to Solarize your RV

It's really not that expensive when you consider it-you can buy a small 75W system for under $1000. This would provide you with enough power for one or two items at a time.

A solar kit for your RV is typically about 50 to 110 watts. With peak sun shining down on a 50 watt solar panel, you'll have energy to run a regular sized television set. They can be used to charge batteries or to power items directly.

Your wants

Most people will want to power a few small implements. Check the silver metallic sticker on the backs of your electronic or other items. For example, a laptop will likely have a marking of 16V=2.2A. This means 16 volts and 2.2 amps. Plug figures like these into our handy solar calculator , to figure out your load (your energy usage) in watts.

Take the result of your calculation and multiply by the number of hours you are going to be out-the result will give you a number in AHrs (amp hours). Divide this figure by 2 to get a rough idea of the wattage you will need.

Freedom and power all in one

RV solar kits are actually very easy to use, virtually maintenance free to give you many years of uninterrupted (and best of all, free) power.

Regulate it!

You can save yourself a lot of trouble by adding a regulator to your system. These come with very easy to read gages (digital readouts, etc) to ensure that you do not overchar...

Solar Packaged Systems

A number of companies and manufacturers put together solar packaged systems-complete packages that take the nitty-gritty 'component picking' work out of buying a solar energy system.

These can come in the following sizes:

  • Grid-inter-tie kits that retail for around $20,000 but will include everything you need. A basic starter kit will retail for $8,000 to $10,000.
  • Cabin or remote kits that will give you electric power for your off-grid home. These can start at $1,500, up to a full size system for $5,000.
  • RV kits starting at under $1,000. These are used to power a few small appliances for your RV, to give you some of the benefits of home while you are on the road.

A number of solar packaged systems are profiled here:

  • Gaiam's Mendocino Grid Intertie Basic Starter Kit retails for just over $20,000 US, though the price may be coming down, and it does qualify for state incentives. It's an easy-to-use system, with four 120-watt Kyocera PV panels on roof or ground mounting, with capacity for up to 36 more panels. It's also equipped with lightning protection and some heavy-duty battery cabling.
  • Uni-Kit for Remote Homes and Cabins is a design from Uni-Solar. It can provide some basic lighting for your remote home or cabin, as well as construction sites and mobile camps. The Uni-Kit is also equipped with simple plug-in connections and a controller.
  • The Nomad from SolarSense is a good place to start if you want to learn the basics of solar ener...
