Marine Solar Power design and installation, power storage, maintenance, and troubleshooting services.
Whether you are a cruising mariner, a coastal gunkholer, or someone who simply enjoys living on the hook for a long weekend, having the right amount of power onboard can be the difference between an enjoyable, relaxing experience and one that is trying, uncomfortable, and potentially dangerous.
The right solar power solution can assure you have ample power to meet your boating needs. Solar panel technology has improved tremendously of late; panels these days are highly efficient, flexible, walkable, and – for you sailors – very lightweight. What’s more, they can be affixed – temporarily or permanently – almost anywhere on your boat, including rails, deck, dodger, boom, mast, or even sails. Battery technology has also evolved considerably to become more efficient and reliable. The only real question is what is the right solution for your boat and your needs?
To answer this question, you need a partner fully versed in today’s solar power technology. One who has relationships with a variety of solar component manufacturers and distributors. You need a partner who has one objective in mind when recommending a solution: what will work best to meet your specific needs.
Marine Special Products Group has been specifying and installing marine solar power systems since our inception back in 2005. We work with industry-leading Solar Panel manufacturers including Solara, Solbian, Merlin Solar, and Panasonic, among others. Whether you need a pulse width modulated (PWM) controller or a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) controller – we work with top solar controller manufacturers like Blue Sky Energy, Genasun, Mastervolt, Victron Energy, and Xantrex. Other companies we work with for system monitoring and other marine solar power components include Blue Sea Systems, Philippi, SLMarine, and Solarland. Being able to draw from this diverse and wide-range of manufacturers translates into us being able to design a marine solar power system that is custom-tailored for your vessel.
In addition to the standard solar power installation components: the solar panels, a solar charge controller, and a battery bank, we also provide remote monitoring and communications sites, tank-level monitoring, inverters, 12v LED lighting as well as existing system maintenance and repairs.
Finally, as with everything we do on your boat, we take pride in the aesthetics and ergonomics of each and every installation. One of our favorite things to hear about an audio installation, beyond it working well, is that it looks great.
