If you’re an environmentally conscious person, then you are probably always looking for a way to generate free clean electricity or renewable resources for your home.
You may already have solar panels installed on your roof. The sun is one amazing and abundant resource for power and it’s about time the world started using it more.
We’ve spent thousands of years simply taking the sun for granted, but it is said that:
If every home and business (buildings) had solar panels on the roof (or even on the sides of the building that get sun directly) — we could power the entire world free, and have about a century of energy stored if we could create enough storage mediums for this electricity.
If this is the case, then we should not only stop there but should use every resource we can to harness this power.
The whole world isn’t yet saturated with photovoltaic cells to capture the sun’s energy, but the technology is available for us to do so.
We often think about using this on our home but using it on our RV would also be a phenomenal use of the sun’s enormous potential right?
Solar panels for the RV are actually available in many different models, brands, and types. Things like heating water, running electric devices, and even running the much-needed air conditioner when on the road or parked in a very hot area depend on electricity.
The first month you install it you won’t recoup your investment but you will see just how powerful it truly is at saving you money. Installing solar PV (photovoltaic technologies) units can be done professionally.
These cells are very powerful at converting the sun’s heat into electricity. Several cells are networked together and can use virtually the entire real-estate of your home’s roof and other areas where you can capture the sunlight directly.
Obviously, the more cells you install and network together the more power you can generate, but you’d be surprised how many you’d actually need.
The area covering the most common home roof is adequate enough to generate enough power to not only power the home all day and night every day, but it can actually generate MORE power than you need.
Instead of using up all your gas in a generator you can simply line the roof of your RV with these cells and harness this energy from the sun. The best part is it’s completely free less the initial investment in the solar cells.
The great thing about this is that you don’t have to do much with them once they’re installed; they have no moving parts to get in your way and require no maintenance either.
You can plug them in, mount them, and forget about them essentially. You would have power all day and can store some for the night shift.
They are incredibly user-friendly. Most of these kits come pre-built and all you have to do is mount them and plug them into the circuit breaker to give you access to the power funneled in from the sun.
