Space is very limited on a boat, so for a given output, the solar panel must take as little space as possible. From the Carib Marine available technologies, mono-crystalline silicon outperforms multi-crystalline, thin film and amorphous silicon. Mono-crystalline solar panels give the most output for the least space.
Solar panels from Carib Marine are a reliable way of producing power. Long term reliability comes from high quality materials assembled into strong anodized aluminum frames under conditions of strict quality control. After 25 years of use a solar panel should still be producing a large proportion of its original output.
