Zamp Solar will unveil its new Obsidian Series solar panels at the RV Hall of Fame as part of the Elkhart RV Dealer Open House. The patent-pending panels are 30 percent lighter and less than half the thickness of existing off-grid panels, according to the company.
Handcrafted at their headquarters in Bend, Ore., the new Obsidian Series panels are designed to address common challenges that people face when installing off-grid solar products.
“It was time for some real innovation in off-grid solar,” said Conor Miller, COO of Zamp Solar. “So, we invested heavily in R&D and designed a series of panels that are lighter, thinner, simpler to install, and easier to use without compromising any efficiency or durability.”
Obsidian Series panels are plug-and-play compatible with the thousands of RVs that are pre-wired for Zamp Solar, or they can be paired with a Zamp Solar Integration Kit and used with any RV or van. The new panels are initially being produced in 45-watt and 100-watt sizes.
“The launch of Obsidian is just the first step into a bright future for Zamp Solar,” said Bill Inman, VP of product strategy. “We have many more new, innovative products coming down the line in the near future that we can’t wait to introduce to the off-grid solar industry.”
Zamp Solar will be at booth No. 96 in the RV Hall of Fame during the Elkhart RV Dealer Open House.
