Marine Power Solar System

00:30 Solar Power
02:29 How much do you get from Solar Panels
03:22 Integrel On-Engine Generator
04:11 How it works. What if we don’t motor anywhere?

Do you want to understand marine power systems better? In this video series, we take you aboard our Southerly 480 sailboat, Distant Shores III, to help you understand what is involved in setting up a marine power system for your own boat. In this episode, we show you our solar power system and Integrel on-engine generator and discuss how we use them together. Previous episodes included marine power basics and how to create an electrical budget for your own boat.
