Flexible Solar Panels FAQs
Learn more about flexible solar panels and how they can be used. Check out our most frequently asked questions.
What makes your solar panels different than the others?
Our models are flexible — obviously — and are also thin and lightweight. This makes them easy to install anywhere. Weighing from 2.1 to 14 lbs, these modules are up to 50% lighter than any other solar system modules available.
Where can I install your solar panels?
Practically anywhere! Our models can be easily installed on RV’s, caravans, boats, and other mobile units. Unlike standard panels, these panels lay flat against your vehicle and are still able to receive enough sunlight to generate enough charge, eliminating the hassle of parking at a specific angle to absorb the sunlight.
I can take them anywhere? How durable are they? I like to travel in the rain.
That’s OK because our modules are highly durable. Not only are our modules thin and semi-flexible, but they’re also safe to walk on. Additionally, the anodized aluminum backing helps increase its protection against harsh weather conditions, including constant saltwater exposure.
What’s so special about your products?
ApolloFLEX modules use monocrystalline solar cells and provide a higher energy conversion and more flexibility than your standard crystalline cells. It’s also maintenance-free, thin, light, semi-flexible, a reliable source of renewable energy, and has an energy conversion efficiency of 19%.
How does all this solar panel craziness even work to begin with?
Sunlight consists of tiny particles of energy called photons. Solar panels are made of photovoltaic (PV) cells, which can convert photons into electrons. As the PV cells are exposed to direct sunlight, the sun’s photons pass through and are absorbed. When enough of the photons are absorbed by the negative layer of the PV cell, electrons are freed and naturally migrate towards the positive layer, creating a voltage differential similar to a household battery. This allows us to charge batteries, motors, and any other electrical devices.
I don’t think I’ll get enough energy from just one module. What should I do?
If you need more energy, you can add another module for additional energy charging.
I like the idea, but most solar panels don’t offer a variety of sizes.
We customize! Most solar panels come in 3 or 4 different sizes, which make it harder to cover the entire available area. We work directly with engineers to develop solutions to meet your specific needs. We can design panels in custom sizes that will cover the entire working area.
How can I get my hands on these panels?
You order our flexible solar panels online, by phone, or by fax.
I’m sold! But I’m going to need more than just a few panels.
