On this web site under SUPPORT - MANUALS & INFO you will find a slide presentation I have used for Boat Show Seminars. You can also see the presentation by clicking on the image to the left.
The presentation includes a simplified Power Consumption Worksheet and explains how to use it. You will also find some helpful overviews of solar panel and solar controller technology. I hope you find it useful if you are in the process of learning about solar and contemplating installing it on your yacht.
Thomas Trimmer has been cruising with his Ericson 38 sailboat on the Great Lakes for over 20 years. He has pioneered the use of solar energy for wilderness cruising. He is continually designing and building equipment to simplify and enhance the cruising experience.
