What you need to know before shopping for a sun powered solar kit.
1. How much energy does your boat use?
2. What is your boat’s battery capacity?
3. How big is the area where you want to install the solar panels?

Take a look at how much room you have on the highest point of your roof. You should install the panels in an area that avoids shading and can capture the most sun exposure. Most 30-foot boats require an average of 300 to 350 watts of power per day and the fridge is usually the biggest power hog. The cost of a sun-powered solar kit for a 30-foot boat starts around $1,200.
