Welcome Aboard, Sun Powered Yachts!
Sun Powered Yachts has donated a SunPower 100Watt flexible solar panel for this year's Summer Sailstice prize draw. Are you signed up and ready to win?
'We hope to inspire and inform yacht owners on the benefits of going solar and help reduce their impact on the natural environment and marine life.' - Sun Powered Yachts
Solar power has virtually no environmental impact. With no moving parts, solar panels are clean and silent, and produce no atmospheric emissions or harmful greenhouse gases. They're also easy to install, maintain and if you need to, remove and store.
SunPower flexible solar panels can be easily installed on your bimini, dodger, or deck and can be connected together to custom build a system to suit your own boat and your own energy needs.
And how do they perform when there's no sun? The flexible panels can produce power in all types of weather. On partly cloudy days they can produce as much as 80% of their potential energy, and on extremely cloudy days they can still produce about 25% of their maximum output. Plus, they're built to withstand hail impact, high wind, and freeze-thaw cycles!
'Thanks Sun Powered Yachts for your support for sailing and Summer Sailstice. It's great to have you aboard and we love your inspiration in helping to further reduce sailors' impact on the environment!'
Sun Powered Yachts owners, Lyall and Katie are joining us in celebration in June this year as they sail in Phuket, Thailand for their Summer Sailstice adventures.
