BP Solar have been a world leading research, developer and producer of solar panels since 1972. They have developed a range of panels that incorporates polycrystalline cells using SiN coating to give superior efficiency compared with the same rated modules from other manufacturers.  All the solar panels have "ARC" glass, an anti-reflective coating with self cleaning properties so that under normal conditions panels do not require cleaning.  The modules are robustly constructed using BP's clear annodised Universal frame and are offered with a warranty that will give you confidence in your system for many years to come.   The 3 series modules have a 12V nominal output and are primarily designed for battery charging applications.

Spectra Solar Panels

The new Spectra range of solar panels are ideal for maintaining and replacing natural discharge in 12V deep cycle batteries in leisure applications. In winter time you can avoid the trouble of taking batteries home for topping up  by installing one of the Spectra range of 5Watt; 10Watt or 20Watt solar panels.   In the UK we recommned a minimum ratio of a 10W solar panel to a 100Ah battery, daily this would generate up to 3Ah. IN  summertime this increases up to a potential of 21Ah daily, typically enought for a summer weekend's  cruising needs for basic lighting etc. Most importantly you'll arrive to a battery that is not flat!
