Global Solar Energy has released a new form-factor of its flexible PowerFLEX+ solar panel, the FG-M1 55-W panel. At 1 m x 0.5 m, the new FG-M1 is designed to fit applications such as off-grid, mobile, marine and RV installations.
Specially designed for rugged off-grid applications, the lightweight, flexible PV modules use CIGS thin-film technology and no glass. Over-the-road truckers and trucking companies can use the FG-M1 to keep battery banks charged for use during downtime, and to provide additional power for onboard electronics, lift gates, APUs and climate control systems to keep drivers safe and comfortable while parked. The FG-M1 panels can keep GPS and telematic tracking devices on tractors and trailers operating during extended periods of downtime, and allowing for more efficient fleet management.
Global Solar Energy’s new panel is ideal for keeping batteries charged on RVs, toy haulers or boats while in storage. The 55-W FG-M1 is designed for use with virtually all 12-volt charge controllers and battery types to maintain the ideal charge, giving increased battery life.
