We’re all familiar with solar panels. 

We see them everywhere these days.

But did you know that they come in different sizes?

Small solar panels access solar energy outside of the traditional sense. 

Let’s check out how functional a mini solar system might be and the surprising ways they’re put to use!

Small Solar Panels Give New Meaning to Remote Work

The number of people who regularly work remotely is increasing, and by 2025 an estimated 36.2 million U.S. workers will clock in from a remote office. 

If you have access to solar power and the internet, you can take your job just about anywhere, giving new meaning to the concept of remote work.

Mini Panels Allow You to Power Up Your RV

The convenience and comfort of R.V. travel are catching on.

And currently, at least 11 million households in the U.S. have one, and more than a million make their campervan, motorhome, or trailer their permanent abode. 

Using small solar panels to provide power to your R.V. unlocks a whole new world, allowing you to immerse yourself in the country’s wild and remote places instead of confining you to established, full-service campgrounds.

Small Solar Panels Let You Stay Connected When Camping

So, you say you prefer camping the old-fashioned way in a tent? 

No problem! 

These mini panels can let you stay connected even when you’re tent camping. 

Though the idea of disconnecting in nature is great, you may appreciate the power when you’re confined to the tent on a rainy day, especially if you have kids.

Mini Panels Can Supply Your Boat With Electricity

There are nearly 12 million recreational boats registered in the U.S., and a significant number of people live on their boats full-time. 

If you have a boat that you take out for extended excursions, using small solar panels gives you a reliable, clean, and renewable power source, allowing you to keep your batteries charged and your appliances running.

Small Solar Panels Provide Power to Tiny Homes

In the age of downsizing and minimalism, the tiny home trend shows no signs of slowing down. 

More people are discovering the freedom that comes with living in small spaces. 

They’re less expensive to build and don’t take much time to clean. 

Another great benefit is that they make it easy to live off the grid, and small panels are perfect for these mini abodes.

Mini Panels Allow You to Keep the Lights on in Your Cabin

Many people use small solar panels to supply electricity to their vacation cabins. 

The beauty of this system is that you don’t need to pay the utility company for electricity when you aren’t using the cabin. 

Instead, you get access to the sun’s energy whenever you need it.
