Having solar panels mounted on one’s sailboat offers undoubted advantages. The installation of an on-board photovoltaic system allows energy to be generated to power on-board utilities, systems and services, as well as to recharge electronic devices. Solbian panels, made in Italy and preferred by sailing professionals such as Giovanni Soldini and Ambrogio Beccaria, are among the best available on the market.

Lightweight and customizable

Solbian’s PV modules are extremely lightweight, weighing only 2.5 kilograms per square meter. In addition, they offer the possibility for the customer to customize the number of cells, color and shape of the panel to be installed, as well as the electrical characteristics best suited to their energy needs. If you want a non-permanent but temporary installation, ideal for mixed cruising and racing use, you can opt for this solution.

Solbian’s SP Series represents the highest level of performance. Using back-contact Maxeon monocrystalline silicon cells, these panels are able to convert more than 24 percent of sunlight into energy. They are especially valued by those who require high energy performance, whether cruising or racing.

Solbian’s SR Series, on the other hand, uses high-efficiency monocrystalline cells protected by a double metal mask that provides flexibility and protection. These panels are recommended for those who prefer a less delicate system, as the distributed electrical contact allows the PV to continue to function even if damaged.
