Maximize With This Limited Edition Walkable Marine Solar Panel

This remarkable semi-rigid limited edition 175W walkable monocrystalline marine solar panel features HJT solar cells, capable of impressive performance even in partial sun. They are custom-made for Orion to stretch the full width of our Sprinter roof deck system so you can get the most solar possible. These are NOT standard flexible solar panels!  Designed with carbon backing material and an ETFE laminate non-skid surface, they are engineered to be walked on.

Features:

  • Walkable Design: These solar panels are robust enough to be walked on, built with a strong backing and a thick ETFE laminate non-skid surface.
  • Durable Construction: Featuring premium A-Grade HJT Solar Cells, these panels are designed to withstand harsh marine environments.
  • Ideal for Various Applications: Perfect for rigid surfaces such as van roofs, RV roofs, or sailboats.
  • White Carbon Backing: The carbon backing improves performance in hot climates by dissipating heat effectively.
  • Free Shipping: Ships free to the lower 48 states.
  • Manufacturer's Warranty: Enjoy a 1-year warranty at 80% efficiency, plus 4 years prorated.

They are a perfect match for mounting directly to Orion's Modular Sprinter Roof Deck Panels as they cover every inch, edge to edge, of our deck panels to get you the most wattage out of your roof space. This or the 165w Sunpower panel are the panels you need if you are looking to maximize your solar and roof deck space on your Sprinter van in conjunction with our Stealth+ Sprinter Roof Rack. For the most efficient use of space on your van roof and better overall function, Orion's modular deck panels combined with these walkable solar panels offer an optimal solution.

Ideal for rigid surfaces like van roofs, RV roofs, or sailboats. There is no glass and no aluminum frame so these panels are considerably lighter than rigid panels but heavier and stiffer than typical flexible panels. They can be bent slightly to match up with the underlying surface, about 5%. The expected life is 10+ years if used in a harsh marine environment. Enhance your Transit, Sprinter, or Promaster van with the Semi-Rigid 175 Watt Walkable Marine Solar Panel, tailored specifically for these van models. Check out our full selection of walkable solar panels:

This is a fantastic solar panel for my sprinter. It's very thin and bulletproof, very walkable.

Power

The panels work great and I have yet to plug in to shore power. I have left the battery heaters on and the power takes care of the battery’s first thing in the morning. I have only been on one trip. Ran all power and never was below 550w in the morning.

Thank you for your positive feedback on our 155 Watt Walkable Marine Solar Panel! We are glad to hear that it has been providing enough power for your trips and taking care of your battery's needs. We hope it continues to exceed your expectations in the future.
