Choosing energy efficient products is a ‘no-brainer’ when hitting the open road
Considering energy efficient choices when upgrading your electrical system comes with multiple benefits including boosting performance, increasing your time off-grid and reducing your carbon footprint, says Enertec co-owner Jeremy Peacock.
Li-Ion battery technology has revolutionised every market in the world. It provides greater energy density, far better performance and longevity and offers huge advantages for RV use.
Enertec’s ‘Juice’ Li-Ion RV batteries offer greater usable capacity, considerably faster charging, light weight, small size, increased voltage stability and longer life. They provide far better performance than conventional lead acid (Flooded, AGM or GEL) batteries.
Other benefits include: simple DIY installation, integrated BMS, cell balancing, Bluetooth smartphone battery monitoring, suitability for parallel operation and long cycle life.
The move towards renewable energy use and all the recognised benefits that come with harnessing the power of natural elements means that solar panels are also becoming an integral part of an RV’s electrical system where energy efficiency is required.
Enertec’s ‘Juice’ flexible solar panels mould to the contours of your vehicle and have an efficiency of 23-24% compared to many panels on the market with efficiencies as low as 15-17% – their aim being to offer the lowest cost product. These less efficient panels need considerably more solar radiation to deliver a given output when compared to the high efficiency versions which are a much more effective option.
The ‘Juice’ portable variable speed inverter generator provides all the power you need to run your appliances and charge your battery when you are off-grid.
Compact, lightweight and quiet these generators provide reliable, stable and clean power that can run even the most sensitive equipment. This technology continually varies the speed (rpm) based on the connected load, operating more efficiently while emitting less noise and lowering fuel consumption by 15%.
So, opting for the most energy efficient technologies makes sense from a practical, financial and ethical perspective. None of us want to enjoy exploring at the expense of the planet yet we all want to appreciate the optimal performance of our vehicles. Luckily, the technology exists to ensure these goals are not mutually exclusive. The only decision left to make is where to park up on your next off-grid adventure…
