The latest developments in solar power technology have brought this concept into the 21st century, but where can you find the advice you need to select the solar panels appropriate for your needs? How much solar is enough?

RV Lifestyle Magazine checked out the solar sizing calculator to discover that with today’s technology you only need as few as three 100 watt panels to effectively maintain the charge on your RV batteries. When you can run lights, furnace, fans, TV and entertainment items and other DC powered appliances off solar charged batteries, you eliminate the need for 110 volt power, and thereby reduce the emissions produced by the generating plants. Best of all, you can mount the solar panels in a matter of minutes, and enjoy all of the comforts of home without being dependent on campsite electrical hookups. The panels are maintenance free and designed to provide decades of uninterrupted power.
