Sail Power meet Solar Power - Sailors for the Sea

Sail Power meet Solar Power

 March 28, 2014  | By: Oceana

We are very excited to see this new technology that allows sailors to install solar panels in their sails. Imagine sailing downwind, while generating power at the same time and not loosing any deck space!

The panels do not need direct sunlight and can be built into a new sail, or added to one you already own.

The panels are printed on a  65-micron thick film that can also be built into sun shades, biminis and dodgers. SolarClothSystem® flexible solar cells will be on the market shortly, learn more from UK Sailmakers.
