The Solar Boat

PEREGRINA is seriously into solar power. Shown above are a Kyocera 85 watt panel alligned with angle of the sun and two 49 watt Siemens panels mounted on the rails each side of the boat. Three other 24 watt panels are permanently mounted - that makes a total of 255 watts of potential solar power!

Last year I posted The Solar Boat showing how several types of solar panels were integrated into a solar power system. This winter saw some improvements and refinements to the solar power system aboard PEREGRINA.
