If you’re doing a van conversion, installing solar panels on your roof is a no-brainer to help power your electrical needs. However, with so many solar panel options available, it can be overwhelming to decide which one to choose.
Instead of setting a total wattage goal (ex. 300W), start with mapping out the other roof components (roof fans, AC units, cargo box, deck space) and work backwards to maximize the amount of solar you can get.
Once you know the remaining space, finding solar panels with the optimal dimensions becomes clear. The following table provides an overview of the available solar panel options available in Canada including their length and width dimensions.
