Solar panels have been big in the van community for a long time, and I am not the first to this party.

They are efficient, relatively cheap, and provide enough power to stay off the grid for weeks on end.

Most people (who use average/above-average levels of electricity in their homes) will also need to strongly consider upgrading their current solar power system size if it's less than 4-5k W – we recommend this as a minimum system size so it can produce enough power on overcast days or in the winter to charge the batteries.

Inverters that can work with batteries have only been on the market for the last year or two – so chances are very high that many people considering adding batteries to their solar power system does not have one.On my Eurovan I have a large Thule box that is always chocked full of gear, camping supplies, and tools, I didn’t want to get rid of my box and buy a smaller one for my solar set up.I also liked the idea of having the freedom to move my panel around, that it didn’t matter where I parked for the night, I could adjust the panel to be in the sun.Don't expect it to make any kind of financial sense until solar battery prices drop significantly over the next 5 years.
