Automatic Double Sided Solar Panel

Edward Grimmer has come up with an ingenious method for raising a double sided solar panel. This was a true work of art and was automated using an old windscreen wiper motor. Locking in the raised and lowered positions is completely automatic and as it is all linked to the ignition you can’t drive off with it in the raised position. This is a very worthwhile addition to your motorhome if there is limited roof area available for more solar. In this case 200 watts fitted into the space of a 64-watt panel. For double sided solar panels they must be raised at least 12 inches - preferably 18 inches above the roof
