Installing solar panels on a US 30

Solar panels

Since our marina has been rebuilding the docks over the last few months, there has been no shore power. This gave me the “justification” for this project. Here’s what it took…

2 20 Watt 1.2 AMP solar panels w/controller $240 each
2 Sunsei solar grips $50 each
Marine grade wire $30
Though deck $13
Connectors, shrink wrap etc. $20
115 AMP hour house battery upgrade $60
Solar powered vent fan $150
Dremel cutting bits $20
Total $875ish

Not dropping anything expensive overboard while doing the install, priceless.

The hardest part was finding light weight solar panels and a way to mount them out of the way.
