With the highest power density in a flexible form factor, these 3rd Generation Miasole CIGS flexible and lightweight modules are designed for narrowboats, RVs, motorhomes and yachts. With an unusually high energy yield due to excellent shadow tolerance and temperature stability, these panels give a good option for low narrowboat decks or hot motorhome roofs.
As showcased by the boys on Foxes Afloat, the panel stick flush to the deck surface of a narrowboat.
The 5m PV cables have been specified due to the constraints of trunking through the roof and down to the controller and batteries, but if you don't need that length, simply cut it down. Foxes Afloat decided to cut the panel connectors off, before threading through the waterproof gland on the deck, and then crimped on a pair of MC4 connectors below deck to extend the cables to the controller.
