Hi Paul,

 

i read some where that the highways department was giving some panals away free,

The Location was M62 J 7 up a pole, you will need a pair of steps and some cutters :lol: .

if you see any blue lights flashing call it a day and just go to towsure,

:):)

We got ours from Adviss Renewables. I saw them on e bay (see link below)

I rang them up and they were really helpful and explained everything. I bought ours a year ago for £145 plus the regulator. (I dealt with them direct rather than through e bay) They explained exactly how to wire it up and what size cable to buy (it was really easy).

 

They also explained how to wire 2 leisure batteries up so that the solar panel charged them both at once (haven't got hubby onto that one yet!)

 

We rally a lot and find the 40 watt is more than adequate.

Where is the 40/50 watts for £220

I saw it at York motorhome & music show the other weekend, :)

 

It was £200 at the show or £220 after. It is only a panel though! if you want stand, locks & charge controller, they have them but a lot more money

 

but I am going to see if they will still do it at £200, If not I will wait until the Peterborough show in the spring, unless I get one in the meantime thats as good.

I was going to go down the solar panal road. £200+ seems a bit steep when you can buy a spare battery for £30-£40 only disadvantage with extra batteries is the weight unless you are going away for weeks on end. ......... or am I missing something ??

Its so we can go away for a fortnight at a time without hook-up, and still have all the comforts of home :rolleyes:

 

We prefer Cl sites away from the beaten track, next to the Sea, near rivers, moors etc.

 

Most solar panels have a twenty year + guarantee so the price isn't so bad, and they are getting better :)

Thanks for all repleys,

 

I have just got an email from Leisurepower. co. uk for the 50 Watt panel

 

Hi Paul,

Thank you for your e-mail.

 

I would be prepared to offer the £200. 00 price to forum members but regret I could not include free carriage at that price.

The carriage via City Link day- after service would be £10. 00. Please also note that a charge controller is required with a panel of this size.

 

Best Regards

  • 2 weeks later...

I ordered a 50 Watt solar panel Monday night, from leisurepower. co. uk

 

As it was late they couldn't organise post until Tuesday, the panel was here this morning (Wednesday) just before 9. 30.

 

now that's magic :D or, now that's service :)
