Market Leaders in Mobile Solar for Over 30 years

Why Solar

Modern solar technology (photovoltaics) is the result of NASA and military research and development projects. The goal was:  Find power sources that are reliable, maintenance free, and with no moving parts or need for refueling. Photovoltaics proved to be the answer, which is why almost all modern satellites are solar powered.

Modern day RVers and Boaties also have a similar desire for independent, reliable and maintenance free power. They also want their power to be clean, quiet, and free of the vibration and pollution associated with petrochemical fired generators/engines. Today’s solar powered systems meet that criteria.

1. Clean, Quiet, & Easy to Use:

  • Solar panels consume no fuel and give off no waste.
  • There are no moving parts, which means no mechanical noise.
  • See your system performing through either your blue tooth app or dedicated monitor.
  • Set and forget with automated safety, battery protections features.
  • Simply place the solar panel in the sun and generate electricity!

2. Solar Power Maximizes Battery Life.
Solar panels generate pure D.C. electricity when exposed to sunlight. This is exactly what your batteries want to perform at their best. The life of the battery can be further prolonged if professionally specified and installed and configured. In fact AA Solar warrant the battery life can be doubled if used in accordance to our recommendations.

3. Camping Freedom
With a properly sized system and the appropriate components, you can forget looking for shore power or running a generator. Go to the lakes, go to the mountains, go to the beaches, go anywhere the sun shines and declare your well earned freedom!

4. Low Maintenance
Since solar panels consume no fuel and have no moving parts to wear out, there are no air, oil, or fuel filters to change. Simply keep the surface of the panels clean.

5. It’s Safe and Reliable
RVs typically operate at 12 volts and less than 30 amps.  As a result, there is very little chance of being electrocuted or starting electrical fires.  If a system is installed using proper wire sizes and fuses, it is inherently safe.
