How Portable are Solar Panels?
Solar Panels for households and businesses have become a very common sight in the UK. Entire neighborhoods can be seen decorated with solar systems, as more people benefit from financial incentives which lower the cost of these. However, one niche has not been filled yet, transporting solar panels anywhere with ease. Until now.
Portable solar panels are exactly what their name suggest, small sized panels which can be taken anywhere. Yet, one “disadvantage” is their limited power output, however they are intended for powering small appliances on the go. Even so, their portability is the key feature, the panels differ in sizes, but even the biggest can all easily fit into a normal size car for transporting.
Price of Portable Solar Panels
Portable solar panels can be bought in a kit set, composed of panels, together with other accessories which are required for their use. A smaller panel kit can cost around £200 but can increase in price as the output grows. The bigger panels can cost in the vicinity of £400, which, considering the pro's of such panels is not bad at all. Furthermore, there are no maintenance costs, as cleaning is as easy as dustying the panels off, and no installation costs which give these panels a huge advantage over the conventional household roof panels.
