flexible solar panel


Recommended Posts

I have seen many of the newer trucks now have solar panels on the wind deflectors, it looks like from the factory.  I was thinking about adding this to my truck. It seems like they have plenty of them for sale on amazon.  I am wondering if just putting some machine screws through the grommets with washers would keep it on there?  has anyone retrofitted anything like this on their trucks? any thoughts?

Portable panel here.  Pull it out when parked.  2 mins to hook it up.

It works when the truck is in the shade.  Cheap easy and panels don't weather when not in use or on the road.

Permanent mounts are great too.

Just a matter of when want to spend the time:

a.  Upfront -  mounting/drilling/waterproofing/securing lines.

b.  or a few minutes EVERY time you park for an extended period.

My first impression in comparison, would be similar to a blue poly tarp fastened by grommets.  It would last until the first trip at highway speed.  Unless you meant to remove it while traveling and only mount while parked?

I don’t have solar panels yet and have not examined any so I could be wrong.
