Podcast 184 explores solar energy with Sunflare Solar

Today we are going to look at a subject that is increasing in popularity in the RV industry, and that is the use of solar panels to extending camping options.

This week’s guest is Elizabeth Sanderson, chief marketing officer of Sunflare, a company headquartered in Los Angeles. Sunflare has introduced some new technology that is of special interest to tiny trailer and teardrop trailer manufacturers. Just two of the very flexible panels provide 65 watts of power.

She explains how the technology works and the advantages to manufacturers for installing the light, thin and flexible panels on their units. We also look at how RV owners are coming to rely on solar power to allow them to use their RVs away from traditional campgrounds

Finally, we’ll talk a bit about the market for solar energy and where she sees it heading.

Solar power has changed quickly since 2003 when a rigid, inch-thick solar panel could produce just enough juice to trickle charge a RV battery. Today two panels can produce 65 watts of power – and bend and flex around contour shapes.
