98. How Well Do Flexible Solar Panels Work On A Canal Narrowboat?

Rigid Solar Panels? Angled Solar Panels? How well do flexible solar panels work on a canal narrowboat? We installed our flexible solar panels when we built our narrowboat in 2019 and now have a full year of data to share with you.

We’ll also show you our flexible solar panel set-up, how we installed them, wired them up, which solar controller we use, and how well they’ve performed in the last twelve months.
