Solar Energy for Insequent

Chris Brignoli and Todd Lee are leading the Insequent vessel project at Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op.  Dave Griswold designed and made mold with Matthew Martz for the bimini top, which will house seven 280 watt solar panels.  This totals 1,960 watts and replaces the need for an auxilerary generator.  Adam has installed two panels onboard, with the bimini top ready for installation.  Mike Rust and Paul Van Dyke worked on the bracketing and mechanical elements.  Matt Henderson will wire the solar panels once installed.

  1. Solar panels are very delicate and if they are not properly cleaned from time to time then their life span can decrease. Also solar panels can be damaged by excessive heat, so it is very necessary to maintain the temperature.
