Marine wind and solar systems, suppliers and installers

We list equipment suppliers and installers of solar power and wind power systems for canal boats.
Earlier canal boats relied on engine driven alternators to charge a battery for lighting. When demand increased for more power for running equipment like TVs, fridges and other equipment boats began to carry petrol or diesel generators to charge multiple batteries. Now as prices fall alternative sources of energy are becoming increasingly popular.

Narrowboat bow

  • Wind and solar energy is free and renewable and enables boatowners to be independent from mains electricity supplies or running noisy generators or the engine when not cruising.
  • Many canal boats use photovoltaic solar panels or small wind generators to keep batteries charged when the boat is moored and the engine not being run. Increasingly canalboats may use larger arrays of PV solar panels with special power management systems and banks of batteries to supply most energy needs. Inverters are used to provide 230 volt AC for appliances.
  • There are now boats with electric propulsion using electricity generated in this way, or using hybrid systems using diesel generators to additionally charge batteries for electric propulsion.
  • Some electrical installers and suppliers listed separately will also supply and install solar and wind power systems.
