Discover Energy Independence with a Truma SolarSet Roof Mounted Solar Panel Kit


In 2014 Solar panel take up in the UK doubled with 650,000 installations. While solar panels for Caravans & Motorhomes have some way to go to reach these dizzy heights, it seems the leisure industry is doing its bit to promote solar energy.

Solar energy is a tried and tested power source that is already used around the world for numerous applications and works by transforming energy from the sun into a reusable form of electricity, a process known as Photovoltaic or (PV). Your Solar panel acts as a collecting area, helping you catch the sun’s rays. The larger the panel the more energy you can collect. The energy collected is then stored in a battery for your future use.
